We are John, Val (Valerie) and Joe (Joseph) from Thornley a small village to the east of Durham City just off the A181.

Joseph has always been facinated by trucks especially Fodens - for his 4th birthday we bought him the hardback edition of the history of foden's. Now he is a member of Eddie Stobart and a day out is 240miles round trip - Durham to Tebay then upto the Carlisle depot, back to Tebay and then home to Durham.

I have always been interested in electronics (yet ended up working in the high voltage substation sector). Because I am into my audio gear this has ended up with me building audio related stuff my latest been two headphone amplifiers.

My Ipod Dock has been designed I guess the old fashioned way using an analogue IC the LM3916, but am currently looking into PIC programming to design another Ipod dock using the modern method. The PCB was designed using Ki-Cad, an open source schematic and circuit board designer.

My other interests are PHP/mySQL/HTML and CSS programming.

I am proficient with Wordpress and Zenphoto, but only just learning Jommla and may try Drupal (I have installed a ready customised Drupal site previously) - all these are installed locally on my Desktop, using Apache/mySQL and PHP for testing and playing around with as well as live sites..
