Used to solder on the carpet in the living room, until I burnt it with the soldering iron and got scolded by the wife...

My new articles index pages up.

https://www.exxosforum.co.uk/articles/index.php

I've also written 26 new pages on the "BAD DMA" saga. Illustrating all the way circuits can fail even with known good chips. All things which unfortunately some people will never be able to comprehend in their own lifetimes.
