Douglas Self: A fairly detailed treatment of the standard class-B circuit and methods of reducing the various sources of distortion can be found on this excellent and popular site. Much of the material was originally published in Electronics World, where there was a lengthy analysis of the problems of stabilising quiescent current to minimise crossover distortion. A list of articles on amplifier design includes my own Electronics World article, which is given a 'first rate, innovative' rating. Thanks Douglas!
Noise Annoys!! The hi-fi fraternity have a lot to answer for when it comes to anti-social noise creation. What sounds like high quality music reproduction to one person can be a source of misery to their neighbours who have to put up with the pounding bass and drums for hours on end. This website explains some of the legal issues here in the UK, and there are hopefully similar sites for other countries. Having been personally affected by neighbours playing some sort of brain-dead repetitive drum music I feel I must encourage all hi-fi enthusiasts to show some consideration for others, and either live in an isolated location far from the nearest habitation, or get a pair of headphones!
Richard Feynman: As a student at Durham University the only course book I really valued, and kept to this day, was The Feynman Lectures On Physics Vol.2. This contains almost everything you could wish to know about classical electromagnetic theory, and much more. I later bought volumes 1 and 3 to complete the set. This website has links about the life and work of a very great and unusual scientist.
Stephen Hawking: A very different physicist, perhaps better known for his disability than for his physics. Some of his public lectures are available on this website, together with more advanced material, mostly in the realm of cosmology.
Webmonkey: The monkey has all the answers! Well, maybe not all, but it is one place to start to learn about website design. An alternative is to buy a good book. SAMS Teach Yourself HTML 4 In 24 Hours was my own choice.
MjrWebsites: My own attempt to get into the world of professional website design was short-lived, but here is a simple demo of both Flash and Java, both of which used the name MjrWebdesigns which I later found out is already used by a webdesign business. The logo on all my designs was quickly changed to MjrWebsites, but it was too much trouble to change the demo, so please disregard the name.
VISIT THE UK
Photo Gallery: My own holiday photos from England and Wales. This was done in the days when a 640x480 screen resolution was common, so it looks rather odd on higher resolution monitors.
Portmeirion: My favourite place in the UK for quiet relaxation. Avoid the mid-summer crowds and visit in May or September to explore the village (famous as the setting for the Prisoner TV series in the 1960s) and the extensive woodland and beaches.
Lake District Attractions: My own tribute to the Ambleside area of the English Lake District. The warnings about the roads should be taken seriously. Even experienced drivers may find some of the mountain routes daunting, but there are plenty of easily accessible areas where you can enjoy some beautiful scenery.
