  • Now, without looking at the data sheets, I dont see why they don’t have a similar chip as the USB-serial for the main CPU, the USB host would be very useful… (come on extra hot key buttons)

  • Generally I like to blob some solder onto the tip before wiping so that some of the oxide is remover by the flux and the whole tip gets a shiney silver surface, I also find that the joints are better and the solder flows better if you heat the joint with the side of the iron tip and push the solder in where the two meet, wait a second or two and inspect the joint
    Some information on correcting mistakes would be helpful to newbies perhaps? (ie, I have a cold solder joint, now what?)

No public wish lists :(
