Some not too important messages from the editor.

From the Q&A 
A few weeks back, we added a new section of material "From the Q&A" from Nuts & Volts. Some readers have responded by email and in the comments with questions or criticisms of some of the items.

Well, I'm sorry to inform our newer readers, that our original Q&A author (TJ Byers) passed away a number of years ago, so he obviously is not available to field your comments. The intent here is to provide content that is interesting, relevant, useful, entertaining, nostalgic, thought provoking, etc. (pick two) So, please, please, please, feel free to comment, expand upon, correct, suggest alternate solutions, and participate as much as you care to. Just be aware that although the original questioner is no longer waiting for an answer, many readers might be interested in the particular topic and your insights could help. It certainly makes it more interesting. So here is your invitation to jump right in!

What's your story? 
The subject lines of our newsletter usually pose a question. What we hope is that you think it sounds interesting enough to open and read further. Since many readers then email us a response to the question, we thought "Hey, let's make it an interactive thing." So now you can click the link and tell your story. Cool right?

2015 CD ROMs 
Well, this is kind of embarrassing. The final product did not come out as well as we would have liked. There were many pages that had very poor resolution. So, we had to fix and remake the files. For those of you who pre-ordered, we apologize for the delay and want you all to know that we are close to shipping. Thanks for being patient.

And thank you again to the awesome folks at ExpressPBC. They have again decided to bring this all to you for yet another week (and beyond)!  

That's it, Enjoy!
Build Your Own Electronics Test Fixtures
Build Your Own Electronics Test Fixtures      

Constructing test fixtures like this can help speed your projects along. They help eliminate errors from creeping into component selection and testing. If you have a large junk box full of components, setting up test fixtures for resistors, capacitors, or diodes will help you sort them quickly.
