Oatey 94 Tinning flux.

I will try again today, and pay more attention to cleaning the joint before hand. I gave it a good spray with electrical contact cleaner, but today I'll soak in in lacquer thinner.

Plain Zinc Chloride is what the solder came with, but I'm out. Not sure if I can pick that up locally.

We are supposed to have Google Fiber available at our new house. And it will be...in January, apparently.

So I called AT&T to move U-Verse over to the new house...we're not in their service area anymore.

Which left us with Time Warner Cable or Consolidated...would you like a kick in the shin or a punch in the mouth?

I opted for the kick in the shin...c'mon Google Fiber!

So much drama at the fencing club. I'm pretty sure our coach is battling depression. So he's quit. I'm trying to organize a co-op so we'll see how it goes. People were very receptive anyway, but I'm sure we'll have to look at raising our rates.

Was the coach a volunteer? It's amazing how fast a position like that turns into a headache, and then a huge strain, even for someone who truly loved the job in the beginning. Volunteers get taken for granted so quickly. I quit a volunteer position recently because the fuckers were demanding unfair things of me left and right--and so far not one person has asked the same thing of the new lady yet. (Not saying you were demanding anything of him personally, Griff, you're the champion who's taken the helm. I'm just guessing that quitting might do a whole lot to alleviate his depression.)

It hasn't worked for me so far...

Went bed at two a.m., woke up at 5:30 a.m., with eyes sprung wide open.
