Hello,  Thanks for listing these out, they are very good.

Time to add another one, 'Schematics'.

i have added the Schematic and also the Infra-red light videos..

New one from Colin, "Circuit Skills: Power Supply".

Updated to the Cool Video bank :-)

Fibre Optics Update

Ha ha. I saw that one and almost posted here about it. You beat me to it.

I just came across a series of similar videos by Pete from Sparkfun. The 'According to Pete' series is going to be a monthly feature and includes:

I found out about these as well, very nice and informative.
