You are sooo right Allen! it took me months to put the list together and without the computer, spell check, google, copy and paste, etc. etc it would have been years.
I find the lost abilities of concentration and comprehension and remembering the hardest "adverse effects" to live with... as one who used to read a lot for pleasure and study this is the hardest loss to swallow.
Thank you for your encouragement
Hi there David,
I used to enjoy electronics as a hobby, repairing things and making my own circuit boards firstly with the transfer method and working up to using a Computer Aided Design program. The reading I did was via electronic project books and old RS, Maplin or Farnell catalogues and the likes (great for pinouts of devices) it was also handy as I worked in a factory that produced populated circuit boards for IBM and other companies and the old catalogues were free when newer ones came in.
Nowadays there are times I wouldn't even trust myself to change a fuse in a mains plug, the best of it is, is that I thought I was getting a little better not so long ago, now it almost feels like I was back on statins.
What have we unknowingly let ourselves in for!
All the best,
