Hey hey do you have any soldering tips (not like the physical objects but like nougats of information)? I am really bad at heating joints esp on pcbs with small holes and end up scraping the pcbs quite often. Is 400 c too high? What temp do you use?
400 C shouldn’t be too high, I go as high as 900 F on some solders (rarely but yeah). Make sure you are heating the PCB and the lead simultaneously, not the solder itself, and then press the solder into the joint and it should flow pretty easily. If you find you are on the joint for more than 3-5 seconds and nothing is happening, let it cool and come back to it.
Someone with an IP address sourcing to the House of Representatives just edited the Orange Is the New Black Wikipedia page with the telling summary of “not a woman.”
That’s right, this Congressman edited out a sentence hailing the show for including “the first ever women-in-prison narrative to be played by a real transgender woman.” What did he replace it with? Hate speech.
The Congressman called Cox a “man pretending to be a woman,” and linked to an offensive article by National Review Online aptly titled “Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman.”
The change has since been reversed and the IP address has been banned from editing Wikipedia for a month, but you can see the original edit he made in the link above.
The change was spotted by a Twitter bot which tweets out links any time a Congressional IP address edits Wikipedia.
i don’t know if everyone else knows about this or not, but i just went onto the twitterbot’s page and this is not just about laverne cox, someone from congress has been editing multiple articles concerning transgender people (mostly women) and laverne was probably the first trans celebrity they could think of, other edits have been made including:
this is not just about laverne cox, do not just make it about laverne cox, this is not one person being transphobic towards a celebrity we like, there is someone in congress with an agenda of misinformation actively trying to slander the trans community through wikipedia.
Family: *says something racist* Family: *says something sexist* Family: *says something homophobic* Family: *makes fun of people with tattoos* Family: *tells you why you’re bad at life* Family: why don’t you wanna spend time with us?
So many men have internalized the lie that they have uncontrollable sex drives, and no way to control their anger. They aren’t ashamed of their abusive behavior because they see it as a something natural to them and maybe even central to their masculinity. It’s scary as hell.
BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In this entire month, Officer Darren Wilson hasn't been heard from, he has literally disappeared. He still has not been arrested, charged, or indicted in the murder of Michael Brown.
