I just came across a brand new (4 months old) website dedicated to Fiber Optics: Fiber Optic Mania. Plenty of informations for both novices and experts. A bit too much of Google AdSense stuff, but as soon as you forget those banners and ads links, the site is worth reading (note to Fiber Optic Mania' s editor: where's the "subscribe" button ?).
Welcome and good luck, Buddy !
Fiber Optic Mania is here.
