TechOnline and Lenten Update

I decided to sign up for a few different newsletters like Embedded Systems Design from TechInsights. I got an email from them about a week ago and they'd linked a site from TechOnline with a load of free online courses. These are incredible. I recommend anyone who's into hardware engineering in anyway to check it out.

Here's the link: TechOnline Free Online Courses
The courses are presented by representatives that have been in the industry for a long time and from the big companies like Intel, Texas Instruments, Analog Devices and International Rectifier to name but a few.

So far, I've already watched the Fundamentals to FPGA's and the Fundamentals of x86 Architechture. I was very impressed by both and it's really helped me understand more of what I'm doing here in work.

Lent
So far so good. I haven't played any games or had any chocolate. I'm missing the games big time though and I'm going a little mad, especially since Bioshock 2 was released there last week. That game truly looks amazing. Even though I've also heard that it doesn't quite live up to the first game. Either way, I'd love to play it.

Take it easy guys, feel free to comment your thoughts below or if there's anything you'd like me to cover.
