lol it would be nice if I had a multimeter. thanks for the suggestion though
Ok - stop right there; it is imperative that you obtain a meter if you wish to continue with electronics as a hobby. Trying to work with electronics without a meter would be like trying to build a house without tools - while being blind. Could it be done? Maybe. Would I trust the resulting circuit (beyond maybe a kit - and even there, well...)? No.
A multimeter isn't expensive - and an el-cheapo weekend-special from your local (?) chinese cheap tool supplier (here in the States we have places like Harbor Freight and Northern Tools; I'm sure similar places exist where you are at); for instance, here's one from Harbor Freight (a Cen-Tech):http://www.harborfreight.com/7-function-digital-multimeter-90899.html
That's $3.00 USD, normal price; generally with a coupon I can pick up a few of these on a weekend for $1.99 each; I pay more for a hamburger at my local Jack in the Box. Such a meter isn't the best, but it's a sight better than no meter at all - and honestly, for most hobbyist purposes, these cheapo throw-away meters work great. I always try to pick up one or two when I go to Harbor Freight, so I can add a few to circuits if needed, and if I blow it up or otherwise break it, I'm not out much. Well worth it, IMHO.
So find such a thing local to you - I am certain you can; you'll be much better off in your hobby if you do.
