I've been watching the Hack-A-Day blog for over a year now and just decided to join up with the forums as I begin to take on my own projects and ideas. I've always been enthusiastic about mechanical hardware and computers, specifically where the two mesh; robotics. In fact this Fall I am beginning a course that combines both mechanical and electrical engineering. They have a spiffy name for the program, "mechatronix." Along with this program I have self-taught, as most of us probably have, myself python and C, along with some web coding as needed.
I hope this will be a good place to come to for information and a good place for me to brain dump whatever I find and think may be important or just plain cool.
