Something cool: Check out these electron microscope scans of vinyl record grooves.

For the curious: Stuff I do, my music, humor, quotes, running stuff, weirdness

Here is a free on-line circuit simulator (sign up using your MVCC student email): Circuit Lab (www.circuitlab.com)

Here is a free on-line supplement covering AC and DC circuits, semiconductors, digital electronics and reference material: All About Circuits (www.allaboutcircuits.com)

If you need graph paper for your courses, here is a freeware program that generates several different kinds of graph paper using your printer. It runs under Windows 95 and higher. This is a self-extracting zip file (about 400k): gpaper.exe You can also create your own graphpaper online. For three cycle semi-log landscape paper go to http://www.incompetech.com/graphpaper/logarithmic and set paper to other (11 x 8.5), x axis to 3 cycles, and y axis to linear. Try 4 lines per inch and include fine lines. Other kinds of paper are available also.

Here is a freeware graphics file viewer and editor that runs under Windows 95 and higher. This is useful for manipulating the image files that are generated by the Tektronix DPOs in lab AB214 and AB212 (such as scaling, rotating, color inversion, etc. for insertion into lab reports). It's also good for doing screen captures so that you can grab the circuit and analysis windows of MultiSIM and insert them into reports. This is much more powerful than MSPaint and it won't crash when you try to load compressed TIFF files either ;-) This is a zip file, about 1.1 Meg (needs winzip or similar): xnview.zip

You may wish to download this free "Virtual Minirator" sound generator software (Windows only): http://www.realtraps.com/nti_minirator.exe This uses your computer's sound card to emulate an NTI Minirator (similar to what we have in lab). Useful for Circuits 2, Linear, Op Amps, Audio Tech, Science of Sound, etc.
