Oh, and mis-cutting a track on vero board rates up there with hitting my thumb with a hammer as far as frustration goes.
one time I had just the one usable piece of vero left and I was making a Phase90 from Sabro's layout. I made all of my cuts 1 row over from where they should be. I think I might have invented a few never-before-heard obscenities. Somewhere a nun fainted.
Anyway, after an hour of trying to trying to perform micro-surgery with solder all over the place, random dremel gouges, blackened vero wafer and a brown-slime substance that I can only think of as Vero-Blood, a small blob of sanity started saying "Let it go, dude.. just let. it. go... it's over. Time to move on, man..." I stopped and took a look at myself... pcb dust in my nose and all over my shirt, second degree solder burns on my fingers, teeny strips of copper insulation for guitar control cavities, which, in recent mental state I thought would FIX EVERYTHING, all over the place, Xacto knife cuts, a cat who will never trust me again, and the slack-jawed look of insanity...
I stood up, tossed it in the bin, ordered more vero board, placed all the bits and pieces well out of sight, and went outside for a smoke.
