    Forget propane. Dealing with misbehaving electronics requires an oxy-acetylene torch with a number 10 cutting tip. It's much more satisfying. Trust me on this.

    Posted By: alsetalokinI recommend that he stick to acid-core solder, it's the richest kind and will flow nicely onto his circuit board. Oh, and a red-hot butterknife works a lot better than a rusty nail for a soldering tip.

    If more than one joint on the board is bad, you can fix them all at once by using the propane torch in your plumbing repair kit.
    Oh that is so 1990's. Put the whole thing in the toaster oven while roasting a chicken.

    @Al

    Yeah, I particularly liked that caked & filthy soldering tip.. not so much as a sal ammoniac block, or even a wad of brass Chore Boy in the shop, apparently.

    How the heck does he tin that thing? Oh that's right, he DOESN'T.

    FWIW, I wrote him a fairly comprehensive email. I wonder if and what he might reply..

    He might as well have used a pig's winkle

    Oh boy oh boy. Look what I found.

    I don't like to revise books. Correct, yes. Revise, no. So I won't.
    A book becomes history the instant it appears in print. To tamper
    with history messes with what others and I were thinking at the time
    and distorts the way things were, forcing new contexts.
    With the TTL Cookbook, it is now January 1982, and this book is
    eight years old. It is also one of the best selling technical paperback
    classics of all time. And looking around, both nothing has changed
    and everything has changed.


    All 340 pages in 12 MB, beautiful scan, clear diagrams, even the images are not too bad.

    It's not even 8 am and already my day is made. I can't tell you how many copies of this essential classic I've lost over the years.

    I haven't gazed upon that in 30 years. I still have the CMOS and Converter cook books somewhere.

    I found the Op-Amp IC cookbook the last time I went to the used book store.

    It's not even pingable (1313 PST). Firefox usually has no issue with FTP downloads. There's no special treatment required.

    I had no problem downloading at about 10:00 PST and find that it's still reachable at 15:27.

    Try going in through the root directory: ftp://apollo.ssl.berkeley.edu/

    Not pingable means that none of my browsers can reach it. Weird.

    You need a browser to ping an internet connected computer?

    What happens when you simply open a terminal or command line window and type
    ping apollo.ssl.berkeley.edu
