I have always been into computers but only recently been looking at electronics again; I did have a Gakken 150 to play with as a kid but electronic theory never really dawned on me. I discovered that coding a C64, i.e. "software" was much easier to develop.
A couple of months ago bought myself an Arduino after reading about it. Since then my interest in electronics has been completely re-lit and I seem to finally "get it"... kindof....
Always had a lot of ideas but was always obstructed by a lack of knowledge. And thanks to the internet, that is becoming much easier and there's almost no limit to what you can do. (Oh, if we only had the internet when we were young.....!)
