Journal Journal: Starting in electronics

I want to get started with a hobby in electronics. I have an MS in CS, so I wouldn't mind learning a little microprocessor programming as well...

Anyway, a few questions.
What sort of tools will I need?
I know I'll need a soldering iron and multimeter. Suggestions on these that work well at a decent (or cheap) price?
Any good resources (websites or books) for a beginner like me?
Anything else I should know?

Thanks!
Chris
