Hi all,

My name is JC. I'm a digital signal processing (DSP) engineer specializing in pro audio and visual special effects. I'm also a professional concert sound engineer, and also do location and post-production sound recording and re-mixing for film. When not on the road or in the studio, I'm based in New York City. I like dogs. I like cats, but I don't like spiders or snakes. I love to reverse engineer hardware and write software. When things break, I fix it. I especially love old vintage, tube-based gear. I'm Canadian by birth, my parents are from France, I speak french fluently, I've been a US citizen since the age of 7, and I don't like Donald Trump.

Okay, I think that about covers it. I look forward to meeting others here.

Feel free to message me anytime.

Cheers all!

Thumbs up Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

Hello all,

Steve here.

Started playing with computers with a Commodore Vic20 and Amstrad 464 in the 80's.

Fortunately this didn't put me off, and have spent the last 20 yrs working in Unix Sys Admin -> Storage Admin -> DevOps CI/CD.

Visited CERN recently and saw the original Tim Berners-Lee NeXT workstation that he used to design and build the WWW. - real geek history....

I believe that networks allowing free communication, open source software and collaboration are the tools of the next level of evolution for humanity and society.

Kudos all for being a part of this movement.

Hello all, I'm David I'm in my 40's been an electronics tinkerer I guess since the 80's when I took all of my Stompers apart to try and build something or another.

I've been out of work for a while now with some pretty serious kidney issues so I've had time to tackle a few projects when I feel up to it. I'm a little more than half way done building my ultralight, I've built a "Yeoman's Lathe" which I is going to save me a ton of cash finishing up the airplane.

I tinker with Raspberry pi and Arduino boards but honestly most of the time I find a better more reliable way to accomplish my objective with an analog solution.

At present I am trying to put together a HHO water torch from scratch. To that end I'm looking to modify an ATX power supply to provide the low voltage high current my present cell calls for. If possible I'd like to end up with it as a bench top variable lab power supply which would have come in handy an innumerable amount of times over the years.

Hi Thestrup from Denmark here.

I'm a software developer with a electrical engenerring degree back in the days. I love tinkering with stuff, but unfortunately I don't have much time to spare (work and kids, you probably know the drill).

My first task is to get a Syncmaster with a TSTB up and running again, but I have lots of other projects in queue :-)

I am Abul from a small town in the heart of India. S/w engineer by profession and own a Macbook (and a few other apple devices). As little as I know about hardware, I don't mind opening devices and repairing them...and tbh I have had a really bad track record in terms of number of devices repaired vs number of tries. I hope that will change though since that track record extends up to preteen years. I would like to think I have grown a bit wiser since those days

A very warm greeting to you all...and sincere thanks to moderators and senior/all members who selflessly help noobs like me!
