    Diodes specs and build compilation threads?

    We used to have bunch of stickies with diode information compilations in them such as pinout, tested currents, voltages and outputs. In addition there were 2 or 3 threads with build compilations for a specific diode. As a beginner I found them really helpful in figuring out what host to use...

    Calorimeter based Laser Power Meter (LPM)

    Hey All, After doing a bit of searching here I was puzzled to not be able to find anybody trying to make an LPM using a simple calorimeter. One can possibly make such calorimeter using known amount of water, heat insulating container, and something that will be suspended in the middle of the...

    Hello from NE Phildelphia

    Hey everybody. I'm a new member here and a total noob (self-admittedly). My interests are Chemistry/BioChemistry (also my occupation), screwing around with computers, playing with Linux OS's (so far mostly Ubuntu, but had used Debian, Maemo, Android and Red Hat when it was called that), and...
