Re: What has happened

I used tape to layout a pcb, covered the copper clad with photo resist, cured it, exposed, developed, etched and drill. Only after all of that did i solder. Who cares, it almost 4 decades ago.

Re: Anti-robocalls bill

We need to pass this bill for the children. When the Founders wrote the First Amendment they couldn't have known phones were going to be invented. They didn't even have the Pony Express!
