Oh well !! Might as well tell you.

I joined because I made a commitment to those who has helped me during my desperate hours.
OH! and I stumble upon here by Googling.

Google is my friend and AAC is where my best buds hang out.

He was the original moderator. He hasn't contributed for many years.



We're very glad he did!

One of the things I don't like about the internet is people can drop off the face of the earth, or die, and you will never know.

I 'm not quite sure but I think I stumbled upon this place through Google, I think. I was drawn to this place thanks to the e-book, took a while until I started posting on the forums regularly.
My first post was an answer on the Homework Help, some habits never die...

Way back then our site was a lot more humble than it is today: http://replay.waybackmachine.org/20040613042951/http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/

That was June 2004.

"The site members have a total of 1729 posts"

Heh, imagine that...

I see I made a wisecrack to the Wook, but never explained how I came to the site.

I got shed by the university (just able to take early retirement), and found my math teacher wife was no more motivated to discuss electronics than when I held my job.

If I am not mistaken, yours is the oldest active user account on the AAC forums January 2004.
(After mine that is).

I had no idea of that, Dave!! :eek: :eek:

Another reason to feel older.

Have to say that I got frequent and good help here. Oh yes!

Wish I was able to help others at the same level but there is a lot of qualified contributors doing that much better than what I ever could.

I like this forum.

Yea, I've had that thought before.
If one of us was to just up and die for some reason, noone on here would be any the wiser.
Kinda a funny thought.

I did a Google search on "all about". Et voila!
The reference materials are excellent, but apparently hoi polloi haven't used them.

"the many" haven't used them? What are you talking about?

I actually had to search it in Wikipedia to find out what it meant. It sounds totally different when you read it with English pronunciation. That was funny...

I searched for a part number and the topmost result was AAC.

I believe it was a house marked part and there was a post here from a member looking for a datasheet on the same part.

The rest is her-story. ;)

Now I remember how i got here, had googled Generator AVR & was directed here to a thread aperson in the UK had going where he had a generator AVR not working & was going to re design it. This prompted me to rev engineer the one i had. What i found great was if you posted a circuit & there was something not right with it someone would point out a possible problem & remedy or chalenge you to pursue it further.

I, like Debe, googled Generator AVR problems. I am indebted to all who replied to that & similar threads for the diagrams & pictures. I can see me in the not too distant future chiselling epoxy from a potted pcb to save £50.
Thanks AAC.

Does anyone realize that this thread is from April of last year? :D:p

If memory serves, I believe ElectroNerd referred me here. I'm sure I'd stumbled across AAC before but I never really thought of getting an account until he mentioned it.

I discovered it twice. First time, using Google advanced search for sites offering "circuits" and "schematics". Second time, same type of search for "allabout" as part of the title.
