  1. Hello all!

    I know all the high school and some undergraduate physics, but I've
    never really gotten to learn electronics. Even though I've always
    wanted to. Now I've got some time over and I have decided to learn at
    least the basics.

    To make you familiar with my aims I have set a few objectives (I'm
    aware they might sound completely naive and unrealistic since I'm a
    newbie, but anyway):
    1. I want to know the basics and learn more advanced topics of circuit
    cards,
    2. I want to know how to be able to build electronic components that
    can communicate with my PC,
    3. and my final goal is to create some kind of simple PC-controlled
    robot.

    So my questions, in relation to my aims, to you guys are simply:
    1. Are there any good online resources or books (I prefer both) you
    can recommend?
    2. Are there any good (and not too expensive) starter-kits you can
    recommend?
    3. Are there any good and cheap online electronic shops (btw, I live
    in Sweden)?

    Thanks for all answers and suggestions!


    Peter

    PS. I tried to find a FAQ for this group but couldn't find one. Is
    there one?
