Trying to flash some boards with new firmware. Holes too small. Internet suggested sewing needles. Didn’t have any. Borrowed some from parents. They came from Shopwells…which ceased to be in 1986. Clearly we don’t sew much. Needles worked though. 1 board down, 10 to go.

Needless to say, that’s the most nerdy thing I read today (no idea why this was pushed to my reader today).

It also reminded me of the Discworld Needlers who would identify and collect such needles 😀
