Well ok, here goes. I’m going back to school and I’ve started this new blog so I can have a place to dump all the things I’ve learned this year. Things I don’t (or do) want to forget, study guides, exam scores, links etc… Since the brain can only store so much information, I figured I am going to need somewhere for the rest of it to go!

Classes start on September 5th, and I have a lot of reading to do by then. Also on the agenda is Physics and Algebra review, as well as basic composition and grammar and sentences cause you know sometimes I write alot cause that’s just the way it comes out and Instructors aren’t going to mark you by the length of those sentences and after so long of being out of school omg I have learned a lot of bad habits and prolly will need 2 look over the way it’s sposed to be done?

For reals… this is a journey. I’m sailing away… No wait. Scratch that. Anyways, see you soon :) –J

Edit: Sep 7 / 06

What a week it’s been so far. What I am going to try to do is run down all of the things we talk about in the class, and review it by putting it into the blog. Sometimes things will be very structured and on topic, and sometimes someone asks a weird question and off we go.

We will be spending the year as follows.

1. Fundamentals – AC/DC

2. Discrete Semiconductors

3. Linear Electronics

4. Digital Electronics

5. Microprocessors / Microcontrollers – On this section, my Instructor explained we may spend a bit more study time on Microcontrollers, since they are getting used for a lot of applications lately.

At the end of the year, depending on how much time is remaining, we will take some time looking into specialty stuff, such as A+ (took it, certified already), Network+ (Yes! bring it on!), Home automation, and automotive applications of electronics.

If we keep moving at the pace that has been set, I doubt very much that I will have time to go back and organize these pages, but hey you never know. Either way, take it for what it is. Some scribbly notes. Laters!

Set the theme of your site to the mobile one, go into current theme settings, change the width to 100% and the color to whatever you like. Smooci is just like any normal WordPress plugin, you activate it in plugins and then find it’s options under Settings> Smooci. Notice that I also moved the container div to inside the loop to get it to display properly. Upload the theme you want to use for mobiles to your wpcontent/themes directory.

Even though the new Galaxy Nexus is coming out this month, it has a 5MP camera and that is not going to cut it. So I thought the battery had died when it hit the water. Then it went through the washer, full cycle.

I am using Android 2.3.3 with Polaris office on a Samsung Galaxy S2, but it shouldn’t be too much different as long as you have an Excel program. Out in the field farming last year, we kept track of each dump into the cart. Take six columns labeled Date, Bin number, Pounds, Bushels, Crop, and Field. This is saying take the value from it’s column C row 3 and divide it by 50. Layed out the columns with Crop, Pounds, Bushels, and Kilograms.

The DC collector resistance is simply the collector resistance, where the AC collector resistance is the collector resistor in parallel with the load resistance. The amplifier conducts for the full 360 degrees of the input cycle, always in the linear region, and the output wave is 180 degrees out of phase with the input.
