No need for curses.  Looks like some folks could benefit from a soldering workshop.  With a little practice soldering the larger surface mount is not too bad.  If there's any interest, when I get back to town (in September) I can give a soldering workshop for people who want to learn soldering (total newbies) as well as those wanting to get better at it so they can do surface mount.  In 90 minutes everyone will be confident that they can solder.

Hi Jim.

I will join you in a curse of components only available in surface mount form.

   hello, i'm jim. i like linux, know a little

bit about electronics (enough to lament the

advent of surface mount chips, they seem hard

to solder), know a bit about programming and

system administration, live in san francisco,

have no pets, am in an old school punk rock

band called the nubs (KUSF liked and still

sometimes plays cuts from our CD), and am

interested in the nb effort to get a place:

   i have some construction skills (can bend

EMT pipe and pull wires and set up sub-panels

for regular old split-phase 110/220 and even

three phase). once upon a time i was actually

good with an airless paint sprayer and also

brushes (don't like rollers much). when i do

drywall, it doesn't look great, but a lot of

people don't seem to notice the troughs and

warps and dimples.... i can fix most toilets

and do some plumbing (copper, soil pipe,

simple fixture stuff).

   i own a PA system and some microphones and

a protools recording set up.

   i live in san francisco and hate parking.

i also hate commuting, tho' i seem to drive

a lot.

   i like to be helpful.
