Welcome to my glorious mess.

Ha! Fixed it!

It’s on  again!  I didn’t tell my wife that the dog broke the recorder.  She’d have probably skinned that dog.  That’s the culprit off the the left, our dog, Mia.  She knocked the audio recorder off of my desk during the Mr. Lucky interview about a month or two ago and since then I’ve had trouble retrieving files.   I went ahead and bit the bullet and opened ‘er up. The recorder, not the dog, silly.   And I found a loose capacitor in there.  Tiny thing.   I then had to figure out how to bridge the break in the lead.   There happened to be a old exacto knife lying on the desk so I heated up the ol’ soldering iron and stole some solder from a clock radio past it’s prime.  I’m broke, folks.   Can’t even BUY solder. lol.  The tip of the exacto knife was perfect for applying the still molten solder to the lead.  PRESTO!  so far I haven’t seen any arcs so it looks like this might have done the trick.  I’ve gotten all my interviews off the device and now I’m ready to go.  Before this I had to take each interview off the device in real time by playing back through the 1/8 headphone jack.  Needless to say that was WORK.   Work I was angry at having to do. 

Oh, Mia.
