First week on the job in March 1980, my new boss brought me two pdp11/04s
and a box of memeory chips. He to told me to double the memory in
the two computers by populating all the empty holes on the memory boards.
Fortunately I started with only one memory board.
All the holes were full of solder so I tried to clear the solder before
putting in the chips. It seemed that every time I touched the soldering
iron to the board, any nearby traces immediately lifted and rolled up.
I never finished the first board and I never started the second board.
Up until then I thought I knew how to solder.
