Thanks to Kiam ming for his effective soldering kit and desoldering pump (the one that both of us spent 5 min figuring out how it works exactly in his lab)!
and Kiam ming's back! I'm quite elated that this dear dear old friend of mine is back from Germany for good. :) I've been missing him dearly for far too long. Yay yay yay. Share my joy.
Kiam ming's had a screw in his knee surgically taken out quite recently and he's into afternoon swims for physio. Maybe I'll join him during lunchtimes or something. =)
