Hello! My name is Erik. When I was in primary school, my teacher sent a note home to my parents. It said, "Erik always tries to take things apart during class. Today, while I was in the supply closet, he dismantled the class record player. I would like to arrange a meeting with you to discuss his behaviour." That note got me in so much trouble, but my mum told me later that it actually made her smile a little bit. She knew how much I loved taking things apart, and she knew it helped me understand them. Fast forward 25 years, and I'm still the same person. I love taking things apart, building things and repairing them. Electronics are my specialty -- in this blog, I am going to help you understand electronics inside and out, as well.
