been in the electronics field for years.
And now I'm in the middle of learning
assembly language for the Microchip
PIC. My boss wants me to learn assembly language before going onto "C"
language. I have already bought the
back issues on CD. A lot of great information. I started about four variations of LED PIC clock projects. So, as
you can tell, I'm a avid electronics hobbyist, too. All I can really say is, great
magazine. All the schools should have
this magazine. Just can't wait for the
next issue. Keep up the good work.
it's a little discouraging to us less-ac-complished folk. The Thereping's evolutionary journey — from inspiration to
completion — with problems rearing
their ugly heads and solutions being
found, is an important lesson in project
development ... and a reassurance that

As an electronic technician in a major facility, I find your magazine very
useful and it supplies me with leading

I compliment you on a very good
WHAT THE “L” IS
A reader has spotted an error in
the on-line layout diagram for my L-me-ter project (What the L is it?, August
2005). The PC trace between pin 15
of U2 and the bus-wire connection immediately above it should be cut. As
shown, the PIC's oscillator output pin
is connected to + 5 V and the oscillator
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Vern Graner's article about his
"Thereping" musical instrument. It was-n't so much a "how-to" as a "true-life ad-venture" about creating a unique application step-by-step.
So many of the projects in Nuts &
Volts seem to have sprung forth fully-formed from the head of the author that
