The next step for the Museum Without Walls project was building the 20 Refresh Rate modules and I quickly found that hand soldering all of them would be very time consuming. So I did what any reasonable person would do and drafted my friends to help. It turned out to be a lot of fun and we only messed up one board by soldering a chip in backwards (the culprit will remained unnamed). Thanks to Tom, Nick, and Sam for all coming and helping (most of the time :)). Below are pictures of our setup (we used a fan pointing backwards for "fume extraction" though it was more "fume displacement") and the box full of the finished boards.
