Red Squirrel, there are some monkey missing, and more battery on the table would be better, but I really like it anyway :)

It may be my next desktop wallpaper  :D
When you make hardware without taking into account the needs of the eventual software developers, you end up with bloated hardware full of pointless excess. From the outset one must consider design from both a hardware and software perspective.

Some soldering absurdity...

This is not absurdity and not soldering, actually there is no soldering iron.

    Also notice that it's not actually plugged in.  :-DD

I actually didn't even notice.   :palm: I don't have a digital scope. Did you capture it then remove the probe?

Yeah I took two pics then merged them together I basically just cut out the parts where I wanted to see part of the other pic.

And yeah I need a monkey.  ;D

BTW I could say that your probe is really well calibrated, I can't do better!

Somebody get her a new iron, please! :scared:


I can't believe no one noticed.. Out of all the pictures posted, this kid is the only one who is holding a hot iron right!!!
 :-+


Kudos to her parents!!!
 :-DD

Ah, memories! I remember building my first 'real' kit - a digital alarm clock, from Delsound if I remember - like that when I was 10 or 12.

Using an 120W electrician's firestick with an 8 or 10mm chisel tip to solder a 1" VFD & 40-pin DIP chip certainly helps you learn a deft touch and a good eye. With a bit of practice you can hold it like a pencil and solder with the board & your elbow on the bench & your hand in the air, and you hardly notice the tip is 8" away from your hand...

Just jam that in there and short across several QFP pins.




Checking the resistance between a BGA and a foot of air?

These were just fun

Yeah, but did you have the cleavage that they offer? :D
That should be a column added to the meter comparison sheet.
Don't ask a question if you aren't willing to listen to the answer.

One of the images with an older guy shows him using a marking tool. It's a carvers tool.

I love the ones with the miniature men on the PCBs. I've seen various people do that before and it always looks fun. Here's a good one on an Amiga 1200 PCB: http://olhares.sapo.pt/mudar-o-chip-foto5999333.html

This thread is giving me a headache how did we get from where this thread started to feminism homosexuality and the rest of this crud?
 Someone PLEASE find some more of these goofy pictures.
+1.  Countdown to thread being locked soon ...

Anyway, I did a search for "stock photo multimeter" and it led to

http://www.shutterstock.com/s/multimeter/search.html

The number of mistakes is funny.  Meters with a reading on the lcd display, but rotary switch set to off.  People taking measurements, but meter is turned off and lcd display is blank.  People measuring mains with black probe in V/ohm jack and red probe in A jack and rotary switch set to DCV. I quit looking after page 1.

If you google stock photo multimeter, I have the exact one in the first picture.  Someone gave it to me because they don't use it.  Neither do I, but it's around somewhere.

I also like to warm up my screwdriver before I work, it helps get the screws out faster!  :-DD

i think it might be dangerous to measure a high voltage disposable camera capacitor charger circuit when the DMM is switched to the resistance range...

You'd think Mythbusters would know better. but no.
They still have a shot in the intro sequence of someone trying to solder a high density BGA style pcb with a horrible iron and making an awful mess

You are joking, but in some situation, heating a screws can help to remove it, especially if it was rusty

Do people actually pay for these?  It seems to me it would be cheaper in the long run to get a DSLR and make your own.
I suppose this is a case of supply being much greater than demand, with people thinking "I have a decent camera, why not take random pictures of various things and try to sell them."

It's strange though, as you say those who are in the industry would likely take the pictures themselves and wouldn't make such ridiculous mistakes. (E.g. if you were advertising computer repair, would you really use a photo of a wrench being used to remove a CPU...?) Those who aren't, are unlikely to need such pictures. Maybe these are for domain squatters and other scammy types looking to find a vaguely relevant image.

Did anybody else notice that Fungus has posted pictures of three different women, with watermarks from three different hosting sites, all supposedly working on the SAME motherboard?  What's with that?
I did and thought it was rather funny. There must be a lot of those motherboards out there.
Looks like one I bought from New Egg on close out and had to return because it was defective.
:)
It's an MSI MS-7525. Very low-end board for prebuilt HP/Compaq ssytems.

Awww, I'm hurt no one remembers my contribution to soldering iron stock(y) images.
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/i-am-waiting-for-the-eevblog-exclusive/msg719540/#msg719540

Anyway, for contrast a few woman soldering shots that are more the real thing.
That SexyCyborg from Shenzen again.
Note I said 'real thing', not 'real things.' The latter would be inaccurate.

Amazing, Simply Amazing.

Long Long ago there use to be a television show called Hawaii 50, the main character had a habit of talking into the back of the microphone in his police vehicle. I use to get a good laugh out of that.

I did not think of that - have never done it. I suppose you would want to heat a rusty screw directly though, rather than heating the screwdriver first.
