And now further off topic. I run a lot of wire in vehicles (test equipment in cars), and I've entirely stopped soldering where I can use a crimp instead. I've seen too many soldered connections break right at the end of the solder. I'm thinking it's the effects of heat. We beat the hell out of the cables driving around like idoits, but the soldered joints fail inside strain relieved plugs!

That said, I do enjoy soldering. I just limit it to circuit boards and un-crimpable connectors.
