So, for a small update on my programmer situation...
I went to finish soldering the programmer today only to find out my soldering iron is dead.
Therefore i came up with the idea to solder using my gas stove, holding the iron tip with pliers... 3 hours later...

Anyhoo... The circuit gearmotion posted does indeed work well with ponyprong... Thank god!

A very innovative idea in the circumstances.

I teel you what, i got a small butane torch from bunnings for 9.50 and i tell you what it is a very handy little thing and i think it is worth having one in your work shop. The flame is only small but it is all i need. the butane is cheaper from Dick smiths. It would have worked like your kitchen stove but i think it would have been much easier.

I'll post a pic if you want.

It may be that you already have a butane torch.Or something similar.

Nah, im picking up another soldering iron tomorrow...
If i ever find myself in that situation again... I think ill just use the schools soldering stations... ;D

About the butane torch, are they like the jet fuel lighters? I'm scared of those things after i got a bad burn from
a brazing iron at my school about two weeks ago :-\
