I think the main thing at the moment is to actually have a job and if you're really lucky, for it to vaguely be in the industry you're interested in. :thumb:

Spent the afternoon chopping and welding an Audi ISOfit bracket to fit a baby seat into a somewhat modded Japanese import 1997 Honda Integra type R. Poor kid won't know what has hit him/her!

Only just looked at your lighting system, nice but what sort of man are you when you're afraid of a soldering iron? 8)

I'm one of those new age men, we're into feelings and stuff.

Yeah anyway, I'm crap with the soldering iron and would just make a mess (excuse #1). I was aiming to make something that's portable and easy to disassemble (excuse #2). Plus I'd have to go buy solder, the iron and probably some other crap (excuse #3). Buying the cables with pre-soldered connections was a lot easier :P.

Some chips today are crazy small as well. I got some free samples from TI a while back, mostly wireless transceivers. They're so small I can't even see the pins. How the hell am I supposed to use them without some specialist PCB being made or breakout board. In the end they were 'donated' to the university, maybe they can use them from something.

The youth of today. :roll:

Didn't they teach you in college or uni?
