stupid pet trick #2
I HAVE CONQUERED THE WORLD OF SOLDERING.
my board for my pet trick is now assembled and working! yippee!!
seriously guys, you have no idea how terrified of the soldering iron i was when i came to the floor today. i did everything EXCEPT solder my wires to my switch because i was so scared. but thankfully, heather velez came to my rescue and held my hand through the process, and now i feel like a champion.
the next step is the actual fabrication, which i'm expecting will be the most difficult part of this whole endeavor. need to do some research tonight/tomorrow about the best way to diffuse LED light.
