Nothing financially. Loads in time though... watched most of the episodes.

When i got back into electronics, thanks to dave, all i had was a crap multimeter and a weller soldering station, so the list is rather long:

Rigol DS1052E
El Cheapo 15V variable Powersupply
Salae Logic
ELV DM9199 Multimeter (Same Specs as Extech EX530, 1/3rd of the Price)
Agilent 1241B
Fluke 87V used
DDS FunctionGen Kit
Lots of Breadboards, Components and other stuff

Also a Solidoodle 3D-Printer, which technically is not really electronics-related, but since i'm already at it i might as well blame it on dave, too.

Personally maybe couple hundred euros... Mainly things like components, programmers for atmels microcontrollers and pickit2 for microchip ones... And cheap soldering station with extra tips. Yeah going to use that next week to fix my moms 2 terabyte external hardrive (mini usb connector got loose, pcb is fine tought...)

And yes i have plans to spend some more... Need decent osciloscope and one good multimeter, maybe a pcb etching bath...
Electronics, Linux, Programming, Science... im interested all of it...

Yeah, literally most of my equipment and books have come from videos and forum topics. But I've also saved a lot of money. I mean the whole Rigol hack saves a bit of coin, and only recently getting a Byteblaster clone rather than the real deal saves on what would otherwise be a necessary expense to get the skills that I need.
