LOL! I tried to post this last night but it had some embedded HTML:

David St. Hubbins: I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was
down. I think that the problem *may* have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument
on the stage that was in danger of being *crushed* by a *dwarf*. Alright? That tended
to understate the hugeness of the object.

Ian Faith : I really think you're just making much too big a thing out of it.

Derek Smalls: Making a big thing out of it would have been a good idea.

Ian Faith: Nigel gave me a drawing that said 18 inches. Now, whether or not he
knows the difference between feet and inches is not my problem. I do what I'm told.

"Nigel gave me a drawing that said 18 mils..."

ObSDIY: It gets really dicey when you're scraping the solder mask off vias and trying to solder
components to that, or trying to solder components to the legs of an SOIC.
All possible to the truly desperate.
