About me

Who am I?

I am in my late thirties (just barely) and live in Copenhagen, Denmark. Most of the week I work for a local Energy/Utilities company doing IT Architecture-stuff (which I have an alter-ego blog on over here). What little time is left over I spend on a number of (usually expensive) hobbies, a few of which are showcased here. Among the others are traveling the world, mainly to visit shopping outlets and take pictures of very tall buildings…

I have been tinkering with electronics and hi-fi for well over 20 years now, and although I do have a couple of pieces of paper claiming to be engineering degrees, I am not a professional by any means (…and they are not electrical engineering degrees anyway 🙂 ). I do this for fun and because I enjoy the design process and the satisfaction of (occasionally) building something that actually works. If I had wanted to do this to save money, I should have stopped ages ago! 😉

I hope you enjoy reading this blog, and if any of what you see here inspires you, feel free to leave a comment or send me a note using the contact form. Happy reading (and building)!

    Hey, mr theslowdiyer 🙂
    reading your blog on my search for jFet matcher, I came across the buffer, something I also need. So, maybe you still have a board laying around? (same question for the ‘Matcher’). As I already stated, I’ll cover the costs, provide me with the details.

      Hi Wim,

      I should have spares of most of the designs. If you send me an email through the form on the “contact me” page with what you need I’ll have a look.

    Hi again,

    I see that you use files (thedownloaded ones) I can display on a Mac! Any advise about programs to be use to display these files?
