This is my first pixel Christmas, and HoHoHo is getting real .... Some learnings along the way. 1. I will never get a job with Ray Wu soldering ANYTHING ......... I would earn enough in a year to eat for a day, if I was paid for what I produce. Hat's off to Ray and his crew. 2. It is not a good idea to use your knee as a soldering station .... 3. The Minister for War and Finance is not amused when you put your soldering iron down on her tupperware dish, instead of the newly acquired soldering station. 4. Always order more pigtails than you need. I have just ordered 25 pair of two core from Hanson Electronics, which hopefully should arrive before I resort to desperate measures. It was while making this order that I saw "If you leave the nut off, you can soften it in boiling water and stretch it over ...". What n00b would forget to put the nut on? Think I'll go boil the kettle ......... I need a cup of tea ...... 5. I now know enough to do it better if I was starting out again, can we rewind 2015? Just to April would do. 6. I told one of my workmates about Christmas Lights Addiction Problem. He now takes great delight in publicly asking me how my CLAP is going. Happy CLAPping folks, keep the smoke inside the electrics where it belongs!
