Im New.

Why didn't anyone tell me, when I was taking C++ in college, or when I was taking teeny gigaPets apart in high school, that this AWESOME STUFF was out here in the world? I'm almost ... well my age isn't important :roll_eyes: but I can't beleive it has taken this long for my interests to sync up this way.... But seriously I just went to a workshop for Non-arduino-savvy-people and this looks like SO MUCH FUN!

I can't wait to go shopping :grin:

If you were taking Giga Pets apart in HS, then you aren't that old, sonny. :)

But welcome to the forum!

Keigh If you were old Arduino didn't exist when you were in high school. But I know how you feel :) Welcome to arduino. Best regards Jan

I'm glad someone noticed I dated myself with the GigaPets comment... But I'm no "sonny", Sonny! :grin:

Definitely a Lassy here, but don't hold it against me! ;)

I have been designing and assembling jewelry for over ten years... Soldering seems like a natural progression (as does ooohh blinky lights!)

Keigh, got to say, coming from a programming background to the physical hardware world via Arduino has really peaked my interest as well. Some wickedly cool projects being done out there. Just wish I knew more about the electronics side of things. I'm patient though, I plan to learn it as best I can at my age... I have no idea what GigaPets are, I was at school before FM radio was big and all languages were procedural :)
