Too old to be of value to society? I know you think that. You know who you are. You will be pleased to know your judgement is vindicated once again. I added yet another thing to the list of ‘Tony can’t do’
Tony can’t solder anymore. Well today I couldn’t. A fruitless, frustrating day. I suppose it has been over a decade (and the rest) since I did printed circuit board surgery. But even so, I am more than disappointed in myself and my efforts today. Liposuction with a vacuum cleaner. Face lift with a staple gun. Back, sack and crack with garden shears. I am grateful I only killed half an led display bank. My well intended electronics seemed doomed to fail. I am trying too much too quickly. Put it aside Tony and get back to the achievable. I need a few days of micro circuitry surgery practice on disposable parts before I go back to the micro switch on the pass card.
