There is something great about cleaning up an NES board after removing a chip and seeing the silkscreen that says PPU underneath, covered for decades until I found it again

I am not sure what the right way is to desolder DIPs but I just went to town with wick and flux and then used a length of kynar to floss out one side of pins at a time after using a tiny pick to flex all the legs a little to make sure they were desoldered

So our bunny has been mostly cage free the last month or so (only when we’re not home) and probably the cutest way to wake up too early is her running sprints back and forth between the living room and the bedroom, or just tossing one of her toys into the bottom of the bed as hard as she can

@freakazoid you were right about those pins! I don't know why I was so sheepish about being slightly rough with a NES I paid $5 for anyway

last night we got Chinese food and it came with a Command/Insult Cookie

@freakazoid thanks for the encouragement. I will just push harder!

@freakazoid looking at the pictures, the pins I have are much thicker, so that is probably the issue

@freakazoid maybe I didn't shove hard enough. I was worried I would break something

I wonder what it is like to be good at electronics modding

I guess I saw a DIP shoved into header pin sockets on my kazzo programmer and thought the inverse would work

why did I think that header pins would fit into a DIP socket

alright!!!
