About me...

UPDATE 02-09:

A great big "Thank You!" to all who offered support and wishes during my recovery from surgery.
It's been 9 months now and I'm close to full ability again.  
Whilst tethered to the computer for these last boring months, I managed to rework many of the circuit diagrams and expand explanations where necessary. Have a look around and see what's new.
