I'm getting a new hobby, electronic DIY kits & other similar projects. And I mean those weird ones like "how to make your own geiger meter" type of kits. The problem is that I want to see what other people are building but I can't seem to find anything else than DIY audio sites Sad So I was wondering if anybody here has the same hobby and could recommend blogs, forums or any other sites that would have lively conversation about what people are building and cool new stuff that you can do. I did find HackedGadgets.com and if anybody is interested to make that Geiger meter, here's the instructions Cheesy

You're going to have to sort through these and make your own collage depending on your interest, kurdt.  More if I can find them...

 Applause Applause Thanks! Smiley I already found plenty of future projects.. now I just need to learn electricity 101. Last time I made DIY electronic kit I found that even if you can solder modchips to consoles it doesn't mean you know anything about how to read schematics D'oh!

I knew I'd forgotten some. These are top-notch. In evilmadscientist, I've linked to one of the projects that particularly interested me
