Learning, learning, learning…
I started to implement my another dream: to become an electronics wizard.
Well, maybe not exactly a wizard, but something like that.
Obviously task is quite complex, but I belive people are living just for the dreams implementations, which is cool, so I’m not afraid and do not hurry very much. Reading first couple of chapters of “The art of electronics” I found, that my old knowledge is somewhat between void and zero, but it does not look very complex so far. Unfortunately there are no exercises solutions in the book, so I only need to guess that I’m right or wrong when solving them, and overall it is very interesting. Also electronic book (about electronics) is not very convenient to use, and there are no russian translation in the shops, so I use djvu.
Did not seriously practice yet, will likely start to implement more interesting things when come close to IC.
Btw, a question: do I need to buy an oscillograph now and which one: quite expensive 100 (or more) MHz of input pass band or just 20-40 is enough, with or without logical analyzer, and so on. I plan to develop mostly IC schemes (and likely in the future using high frequencies too), and do understand that it is definitely needed, although right now it is a bit early, so just would like to gather opinions.
And also, is there an open source Linux software for IC design and emulation?
So, things currently in development: learning linux kernel (and of course others too) hacking, learning (basics of the) electronics, learning math (group theory, so far basics and crypto applications), learning music (likely you do not want to hear my trumpet playing :), learning religion (I read the Koran (very strange book, but I can understand a little bit more about people now) and have plans about Zen just to extend horizons, not to deeply addict on that), (not as frequent as I want) learning sports, (rarely) learning appartment development things.
Learning how to make things interesting for myself :)
