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...

Anyone have access (likely through a University library) to The Independent Digital Archive 1986-2012? There's a rumored article from a 1987 or 1988 issue of the UK Independent that I really want to see, but it's only available to institutions of higher learning. PM me por favor.

Some public libraries here subscribe to it. Even if yours doesn't, you may be able to access it through the interlibrary network using just your local library credentials. Worth a try if an easier access route doesn't come through for you.

If her university library access wasn't deleted after she graduated.

It may have been, but she has friends there that might help. Or hire a hacker.

Unfortunately, The Independent Digital Archive 1986-2012 is a subscription service for libraries private and public. Even if someone in the UK is a member of a university; or, public library there, they might only be able to access that particular archive from within their country. It may not help to give Clod access to their account from outside. It could be the same if she became a foreign member of a subscribed library there which is easy enough to do.

Clod may have to find someone with access to a subscribed library stateside who would let her use their account or else describe what she's looking for and have someone else do the legwork to search, find, copy and send it to her from wherever. That's why I suggested the US interlibrary network approach. Of course, I'm just guessing about all this. I see nothing, I was not here, I did not even get up this morning. [/Sgt. Schultz].
