Wednesday's here and we are back with the links of death and depression. I mean, sunshine and happiness, of course.

Seeing Sound

As with baking...

...DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE OVEN. You'll burn the cookies while eating the dough! Just got a new LOUD oven timer to make sure somebody is standing over the PCBs when the timer is about up. Pick and place machines tend to drown out gentle oven beeps!
