As a friend pointed out to me recently, most people are rotten at soldering (you know who are are, gloppy blobbers). I am included among the lame solderers, and decided to say “bullshit – this is a skill I can acquire”, so my first stop, as usual, was wikipedia. Their article, while informative, was not as helpful as the first external link they pointed to:
Very good stuff and ad-free, which is surprising. BTW, wikipedia is having another fundraiser and it’s a good cause so if you can, go donate blah blah etc. Oh and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – I have a feeling it’s going to be a very good year.
