    Hi Guys,

    I hope the mods won't mind that I do this, but I have just started up an electronics forum specifically for South Africans. It literally launched just this evening. I thought it could help a great deal if there are more people like me always DIY'ing. Electronics always seems out of the normal guys grasp, but I am keen to show everyone that anyone can do it.

    Aquariums, especially marine, always need electronic goodies, so my site will hopefully supplement the keenness that MASA members have always shown.

    Please visit electronics-sa.com - Index page

    Not many users yet, but we'll grow it organically :)

    Mods, (Not sure if Viper, DR, Allan and Rory are still around, if so, Hi Guys :thumbup:), if you feel this is blatant advertising, I apologise and feel free to delete it then, but the forum I started is completely pro bono.

    Hope to see you guy there!

    You know what, you just gave me a good idea for a "Proudly South African" open source aquarium controller which may just be exhibited at the next Expo!!

    Yeah especially if it's been "developed" by MASA members!

    Very nice. Will be great to have a place where people might know where to source stuff from. Thats one of the hardest things in this country.

    I reckon it should be OK. It is a complementary website to our marine hobby for the guys into electronics. Not a competing website.

    Let's hear what the other mods say. @viper357 @Rory @leslie hempel @Manic

    I think it is a good idea. Will give us a place to ask more technical electronic questions about DIY marine equipment. As long as we still keep a wealth of knowledge on this website regarding DIY electronics.

    Hey Gali, long time no hear. Good to see you still alive and kicking. Just registered on your site, quite a nice site too. Soooo, this means I can ask you to build me some stuff if I need, as I suck with o's and 1's and gates....lol

    Yes I'm hoping to attract some electronics braniacs to the site over time. And I think it will compliment MASA'S DIY section very well.

    Hey Sean!!

    Yes, it's been a while. Whether I'm alive or not is debatable lol.

    Thanks for registering. Well, as it stands, the only thing I can build you is a programmable plug bar (multiplug) and a programmable servo. But I'll get get there!

    Nice hearing from you again and nice to see some familiar names still on hear.

    Is Viper still a pommie? Or did he come back to sunny SA?

    Nope, he is still a pommie, heard via the grapevine he had to be accompanied by bodyguards when he came to SA last week, something about him being wanted for stealing attitudes when he left SA....lol
