About This Part Of Me
I have always been interested in steam trains and vacuum tubes. I love historical technology. Apart from that I love the ocean and hiking in the mountains, music and reading. The other major part of me is connected to people and making a difference with people. My life used to occur to me as miserable and I actually did experience a major epiphany; I now see all that seemed so miserable as the gifts that caused me to wake up and hear my soul, and what I heard is how much I love people and I got the immense privilege of letting go of the cynicism and resignation I had about myself and all people that was crushing my experience of life. The epiphany came about shortly after ceasing work due to a full-on physical and mental breakdown. It is true that while seemingly horrible things happen, looking back there is usually a great lesson and some of us are fortunate enough to wake up and see that clearly. I now would not have have my life be any different, it was and is, perfect.
Since my professional life (as a mechanical engineer) ended, I have been expressing my interest in vacuum tubes by designing and building vacuum tube audio audio equipment (www.triodeguy.com). What this blog is about is my abiding interest vacuum tube test equipment and specifically, oscilloscopes, I am creating something of retirement home for oscilloscopes which I intend to document bit-by-bit here.
I will be documenting my collection here together with what I have learned that may be of use to you.
