The passing of FiftyOneFifty

It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.

FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

In the episodes hpr1037 :: Soldering Part 1 and hpr1047 :: Soldering Part 2: An audio demonstration of soldering, MrX inspired me to get into soldering. It's easy and if audio isn't your thing there is always the SOLDERING IS EASY complete comic book.

For my first project, I soldered a 12v power supply I got for €0 at the recycle shop, to a 12V fan from my old computer tower.

a ugly solder point

The result a ugly solder joint, but a working project.
