    Good find, cheers mate. I've always found that with concepts like these the available explanations as to how they work are either too light or abstract, leaving you with an insufficient understanding of how they work, or too detailed with too much extraneous information, leaving you bamboozled. These guys manage to explain things in a fashion which is readily understood by pretty much everyone.

    I found some usefull video tutorials, they are flash based or downloadable and mainly cover basic stuff but they sound worth a mention.
    Very good eagle tutorials there as well covering alot of little tricks.

    Found another site, http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/. It seems to be an online textbook of introductory electronics, similar to what you'd learn in first + second years of Uni. Also has an attached forum which seems quite good.

    Dear lord. Is no one aware of Talking Electronics?

    http://www.talkingelectronics.com/te_interactive_index.html

    They've been around since the year dot, used to publish beginner's electronics books through newsagents, and the website has circuit diagrams and descriptions of circuit operations. Lots of unconventional component uses and salvage circuits. Well worth a poke through.
