Re: [soft_radio] SR-40
- I put the lamp from Harbor Freight on my workbench, and I highly
recommend it, I can now see the board and the parts clear as could
be. The lamp is a circular florescent and the illumination is nice
and even with no glare or shadows. If you are 40+ or have vision
problems I highly recommend it, I had another lamp from Lowes with an
incandescent light bulb and the difference between them is
incredible. It cost $27 and it's worth every penny.
Disclaimer: I own the lamp company and want you to buy it so I can
retire as a rich pig in Tahiti, and if you believe that, I also sell
bridges and have a real good deal on one in Manhattan .

I fail to see why doing the same thing over and over and getting the
same results every time is insanity: I've almost proved it isn't;
only a few more tests now and I'm sure results will differ this time
