Nice to have as many United fans here as we can get, especially with dodgy Chelsea fans knocking about

Haha, yeah,
we even have an official fans branch here in Israel.
I think United is the only team from PL that have such a massive fan base here in Israel

Definitely, we were lucky during the week and you deserved something from the game.  Your league position doesn't reflect how good you can play as a team, in fact I reckon you gave us a couple of the hardest games we seem to have had all season.

My name is Lunchie and im from West Central Illinois. I am on the verge of getting into pedal building and can already feel the sickness coming over me .

I am currently waiting on the parts to make a home made Beavis Board. After that i plan on making a buffer or two and a couple easy boosts to get my feet wet. I am not new to soldering but I am new to trying to read schematics and PCB layouts.

Lots of good info here and hope I hope that in the future I will be able to repay with some knowledge of my own.

In reply to this post by IvIark
I'm Ross from the US. I'm just finishing up high school, soon college-bound (no idea where), where I will study electrical engineering. I've been a tinkerer my whole life, but I've only been building pedals for about a year.  I have a one-man business (Smugtronix), and I'm just about ready to launch my first product (a simple 1590A buffer). I've been spending the last month or so learning Eagle, and I'm about ready to send my design out for fabrication.

Paolo from Italy here, "seasonal guitar player and singer", if I can say so, not my job, but a beautiful hobby that keeps me quite busy!
I don't remember how I came across this blog, but I'm checking it every day now! Waiting for my order to come in to finally start building from these layouts!

So, thank you Mark and Miro for keeping us busy and dreaming for our next build!

Same here!  I was sick this past week and the worst part of it was that I didn't feel well enough to ride my bike until Friday.

Never posted here either.

Eric from Fort Collins, Colorado.  I'm a computer scientist by trade but ended up on the business side of one of the larger software companies in the world... haven't programmed (for pay) in years!  I work from home now so there's plenty of conference calls where I have the iron hot.  ;)  

I've been in bands for around 15 years, started on bass, then to guitar, and now back to bass.  Punk rock roots but I primarily play hard/heavy rock nowadays.  My first pedal project was a guv'nor from *I think* generalguitargadgets.com.  Between myself and my two guitards, well over half of our boards are pedals I made.

Unfortunately don't watch 'real' football like the rest of the world but I'm a Detroit Lions/Red Wings/Pistons fan given my upbringing in Michigan.

I don't think I've ever posted a photo of one of my builds on here, so here you go... a triple wreck I made for my guitar player earlier this year.

Mark here from Colorado in the US. I work for a company that designs and installs commercial sound and video systems. I also work from home which makes it easy to cheat in time to work on circuits. Don't tell my boss. LOL.

If I'm not soldiering, i'm out on my bike. Have two motorcycles and spend all my time pedaling. Hey who put all these hills in Colorado. My legs hurt.

Glad to see there's other folks with the same affliction as me. Such an addictive hobby.

As for football. Go Broncos!!!! woohoo!!!!!!

BTW: way down the rabbits hole. ggggrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!! germanium!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it'll make you crazy.
