New thing learned on Sunday, Oct 19
Monday, Oct 20, 2003
I've been thinking about adding a 'new thing learned today' sidebar to Fury. I think I literally do learn something interesting new every day. I haven't built it yet, but I really wanted to use it last night, so now I have to write it in a post instead.

Last night I learned that in no circumstance is it optimal to determine whether a soldering iron is cool enough to leave unattended by means of touching the tip of the soldering iron with your finger.

The most irritating part is that for a few days I have to try using another fingertip for putting in my contact lenses. It's harder than I thought.
