Party!

Party update is that we have cubes! I'll send Reid links to buy lockpicks and shodo boards. Looks like soldering might happen if we buy some soldering irons?

Lockpicks have been ordered

Kurt will paste recommendation for soldering station here -> http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__19240__Soldering_Station_with_Adjustable_Heat_Range_US_Warehouse_.html And a tip cleaner: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__62645__Soldering_Iron_Tip_Cleaner_with_Soldering_Iron_Stand_US_Warehouse_.html We should get a couple solder suckers and a couple different types of solder. Probably a 'third hand' or something similar also. Give me (Kurt) a budget and I'll suggest a toolbox-full of 'learn to solder' supplies.

Need to get a Doublecliks sample to the unitarian church folks
