Why Technical Ambitions

Anybody who knows me even reasonably well will know that I am a gadget freak. I love and live for all things hi-tech. Ever since I was a little kid I have been experimenting with electronic gadgets and any other types of gadgets that I could lay my grubby little hands on.

The love for gadgets is a really easy way to lose money fast. Every new day millions of gadgets see the light of day. We only see a fraction of those. Due to the internet admittedly we see a lot more than say 15 years ago, where the only gadgets I saw where in the electronic shops and Newworld Pharmacy in Pretoria, South Africa.

My love for gadgets has taken me down many wonderful roads and I will die a gadget freak I guess. My grandfather who lived to be 93 years old, said to me the weirdest thing when he first saw MNET, "Boy this new fangled stuff is enough to blow your mind" Bear in mind that he worked for Telkom for half his life as a technician. So as one can see new things will be blowing our minds soon. My kid will one day be showing me things which I wont understand (actually he does that already)

Anyway I have created a few interesting projects and I will share them with you. I have had many firsts in my life and I think the one that no one else has had will be the first article I write about. Unfortunately it is not online anymore as it costs a packet to run and is a lot of hard work. However maybe one day it will again be online for the viewing pleasure of all.
