Re: New dark theme installed

Thanks for this. I think I requested a dark theme in the xmas thread also (as I'm a bit of a nighthawk lol). While Carbon2 isn't properly dark, it is much easier on the eye than the default :thumbup:

Re: Lead-free soldering

I've got solder that pre-dates me, works fine. Some bits need a bit of encouragement with a bit of fine abrasive prior to use, to remove the years of oxidisation for a good joint, but there's nothing wrong with it.

Re: Lead-free soldering

Use what feels best to you. Just don't get annoyed when chemistry fights you when you want to remove it. It's a horrible experience. Desoldering is a LOT worse than applying. That lead free stuff is absolutely terrible for removal, the chemistry is fighting you. You can apply a low point melt solder...

Re: Whitewater Madness

Never played or even seen this. It looks like a weird SHMUP version of Toobin', and a lack lustre version at that. Thanks for sharing.

Hah yeah. I mean, to be fair, it is being used for something, so I can't fault her :lol:

The wife..

So, I'm wondering why my ST's hard drive has been moving from its hibernation spot (under the sofa out of harms way) from time to time. It was originally well out of sight. Slowly it has been creeping into view, and changing orientation. I thought nothing of it to be fair, just found it odd. Yesterd...

Re: xmas theme.

Snazzy, I like it! I'm usually a bit of a "bah humbug" type, but this theme is quite subtle in comparison to some I have seen over the years, the only issue I can see is having Santa in the reply box slightly obscuring the text. On another note, I don't suppose you could add a dark style to be selec...

sad times we live in :(
Indeed it is. Sorry you had to live through that. I'm the same with my shed, not slept properly since the day it happened. Gonna take a while for myself to return to normal behaviour.

Re: FOR SALE - MICE & JOYSTICKS (UK) JOB LOT

Don't worry about it :) Not your fault. Things like this happen. It's kinda sad that it happens to the best of us, or those that don't have much but are grateful. I'm not saying that those who are rich should be the ones who get attacked in this way, but it does make you wonder why they target the p...

Re: FOR SALE - MICE & JOYSTICKS (UK) JOB LOT

Had my shed broken into a few weeks back, they took my sons motorbike a few drills, bits and sockets, angle grinders and other easy to grab stuff, they left a C64, a pair of Technics 1200's in flight cases, a couple Tascam DA's and other studio / weird stuff. It's as if they have no clue. Am serious...
