looks like a good iron, weller makes good stuff, and anything over 25W i wouldn't recommend for on board soldering.


also, remember to never mix silver solder with lead solder

I do on board soldering with it. I adjust the temperature though depending on what I'm using it on.

true, but i still wouldnt recommend a 150$+ iron for someone who just tinkers around with it, and doesn't have much experience in it.

Dell's monitors are great. I would like another one, too - I have my 20" dell, and a 17" "Videoseven". It's alright, but it's kinda strange having a wide-screen and "normal" monitor.

yeah i can imagine they'd look a bit odd, i think if you have one widescreen youve just gotta have the other the same


well finnaly got around to buying a new television, 37" Toshiba, although my poor crt tv is gone but luckily i bought an rgb cable so the picture quality will be far betetr than without it with my old consoles. Thats the thing about lcd tv's, they output the quality different with old consoles so the old consoles quality looks terrible
