I caused quite a bit of damage to the board though, before figuring out how to properly desolder...
I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm having little to no success with #desoldering at all. I can't get the solder on the board to melt. My own solder melts just fine. Tried it at higher temperatures (400-450°C) too. Maybe the tip of the iron is too large to be able to reach the very small pads? All I managed is getting off one of the potentiometers, with lots of patience, solder wick and quite a bit of force. At this point, I'm afraid I all but butchered that board 🙈 #soldering #repair
Aren't you tired from writing your Rust programs in English? Would you like to try something different, exotic and funny? Do you like saying "merde" a lot?
Here's my contribution to solve this problem: Rouille, a French Rust programming language.
