Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Rutherford B. Hayes, born in 1822. He was our nation's 19-th president.
Yesterday's quest was a success. The stupid useless eave gutters are now totally off of the garage. Now I've gotta figure out how to get rid of the trash.
And now for all you beleaguered southpaws out there, there's one bright spot. A tool that's manufactured only in the left-handed version. The Weller solder-gun, made to be held in the right hand, the way a left-handed person solders.
Yes, folks, I've seen lotsa right-handed techies hold the solder-gun in the right hand and the piece of solder in the left, and they generally don't do as good of a job as folks who do the opposite.
Doesn't bother me much, though. I'm not particularly fond of solder-guns anyhow. I use an Unger soldering iron on a PowerStat controller. The 40 to 45 second heating up time is really not that much of a bother to me.
Today is gonna be a Washington Area Secular Humanist meeting, and the venue is back to the Wheaton library meeting room, which is fairly easy to drive to. Looks like they've given up on the Rockville library, which I've never figured out how to get to.
