Hey brad when you are soldering the 8x8 do you have to use flux

I don't bother to use flux unless I am soldering surface mount components.

There is flux already in the solder, but when it comes to fine soldering (surface mount) you want all the help you can get so I highly recommend flux. I just use a flux pen which costs around $5

Any time you deviate from sequential consistency, you increase the complexity of the problem by orders of magnitude.

Just be careful not to go faster than 88Mph when transporting your fluxed capacitors

I already did that and wound up in the future. Think about it... by the time you read this, it will be the future! So technically I am writing to you in the future. :mrgreen:
