We updated the backup script to use Amazon S3. We also typed up Shenzhen travel log for tax records and scanned all receipts.

Looked at air compressors for the solder dispensor that should arrive Friday. Reflow oven and a few other packages were just released from customs and should be here for a Workshop video tomorrow.

    Uses a twenty buck fish tank air pump as a vacuum source. It looks like it will provide positive pressure as well. (Sorry for the Instructables link – I hate instructables).

    I was thinking about using a small bottle of compressed air (or maybe a car or bike tire) as a compressed air source for a solder pen. It is silent and can be refilled easily from a cheap 12V car air pump. I think the solder paste pen will use a small volume of air, so a compressed bottle or tire might just last quite a long time.
