10/05/15 - After many years using EaglePCB I have finally moved on to a new app for laying out my PCB's. It's not one of the usual suspects though, it's not Altium Designer, Circuitmaker, KiCad, DipTrace or DesignSpark.......it's AutoTrax DEX. My next project is well under way and I'll be using "DEX" to lay it out. For now, check out DEX here.
19/04/15 - Dang I never video'd it, but I fixed a faulty 22" LG W2246 monitor today. Symptoms were that the backlighting switches itself off after a couple of seconds whilst the monitor power remains on. Traced the fault down to one of the CFL backlighting tubes had been arc'ing at one end and had burnt through the connecting wire leaving it open circuit. So, I scraped off the carbon at the end of the tube and managed to solder a wire on and then after re-assembling the monitor is fine. In fact, I'm typing this up on the monitor!
