    hey tech, thanks for feedback :) yes, i'll do my best in updating blog, sometimes i hit the jackpot, and then there's of course some ''quiet'' time....sort of sine-wave, up-and-down slopes :D. funny thing is, i buy very little things, even less now on summer holidays, as i couldn't get any job, or any other financial support, except parents will help if i ask nicely. But, nice that you have read blog, according to read-times at each post, some others read too, which is great :). I learn too about these stuff what i buy, and also, grammal skills, sort of, improves too. My buddy asked my ''why in earth you write in english? i don't understand a thing!'' well, simply for international reasons, english is simply more used and frequent language compared to finland, finland is spoken only in finland, and searching info is much easier in english too.

    I have nothing but a GED, im 25 and have always been intrested in electronics and computer technology; so i decided to start making some initiative to study the material and gain consciousness of this field, im planning on starting my actual education in a local trade school. Im motivated by a feeling of hollowness in my life at this point, im hoping this and and some ofther factors will rid that.

    Hi fortion.....Welcome to ETO ;)

    Me, I am not an Engineer with all the papers that come with a proper Degree ;)

    Hands on me with a practical experience of what works and does not ;) Hey, I am but a humble tvtech. I have learn't a lot here though.

    I am really impressed with your qualifications so far though. Please help us out here when we are stuck for answers. We need intelligent folks like you.

    The new Generation maybe??? Cannot wait for it to happen.

    Really = nah :mad::mad::mad: I canno't explain all here. Standards are falling Worldwide......

    No more proper Engineers anymore...just well, those that "think" they know.

    May God and this Forum please respect me for speaking the TRUTH.

    Outta here

    Regards
    tvtech

    Hey fortion, welcome to ETO. I hope you'll enjoy your stay :). i can tell, this place is invaluable in terms of knowledge AND the willingness to people actually help here.

    And tvtech, sorry i've been so quiet lately, i just got piss...just kidding, truth is, i'm pretty much occupied with my graduation-job, or whatever that is in english, but that work you do just to show you are ready to graduate. My job is to add safety-earth along with necessary earth-leakage trippers. So far, work's been pretty easy, couple of mishaps, but no worries, i still have all fingers (and hair...) intact :).

    Hi fortion

    I am sure you won't. A few more good, sensible posts...and you will be flying. I like nothing more than to Rep Newbies who have potential here.

    Those that are Honest, Intelligent and willing to listen are the Guys I look after.

    Regards,
    tvtech

    LOL fez

    Us cranky guys have the experience. We know (and I speak for myself) hundreds of ways why a thing will not work as the Poster wants...

    Therefore, been there and done it. So to prevent wasted time..maybe show the way it possibly can work :D

    Something to think about Fez :D

    I don't know whether the post is still about discussing the qualifications (lost my way till the fourth page). I have a B.E in Electronic Engineering (which I think is not very good as I have learned more from the forum and the off times than in my university). I have just submitted my dissertation for my MSc. here in the University of Strathclyde and it has been a good experience. Hope to be active on the forum soon :)

    I have found that the degree gets you in the door!!! Once you start your job, that's when you start learning..... A bit of magic smoke now and again and fingers burnt... NOW your an Electronic Engineer...

    Yes, rightly said. The real learning starts when you get down and dirty!
