  1. There is nothing tricky about SMD. Tack down a component on one side, solder down the other side then return to the tacked down side to property solder. It only gets tricky when you try to remove a component while keeping it in tact.

  2. I wonder why he pronounces his R's like V's, He pronounces his R's correctly a couple of times but only when the R is in the middle of the word(He's kind of forced to really).
    It's a very interesting way of talking, I wonder [how he started/why he does] talk that way.

  3. Do you guys can add subtitles in English on your videos? I would love! I don't understand all parts of the video very well. And Maybe your public grow faster if you add it.

  4. I remember I could hardly wait for each Rainbow Magazine to come out. So many hours typing basic listings into my TRS-80 Color Computer 2, and Color Computer 3. Great memories.
