circuit boardThis is a big deal.  It looks like Altium has created a hobbiest version called CircuitMaker.  I signed up for the beta, more to come….

Signal and Power Integrity by Eric Bogatin was recommended to me for learning how to do high speed PCB design.  I’m heavily dyslexic so it’s going to take me a bit to get through it so I think I’ll track my progress here.

Eric Bogatin also appears to have several articles on EDN and has a host of video courses on-line that appears to be sponsored by LeCroy.

Dark and Stormy Nights

I love murky 30-50 style scary/funny movies like Murder by Death, Clue, Private Eyes, and Dark and Stormy Night.

I need a manor house on a hill, with hidden passages, with the only access across a old bridge, and built in a location that has mostly raining nights.
