All of this is very good advise and written better than I could. It's what I
learned the hard way.

This thread is the most comprehensive and definitive guide to soldering I've
ever read!

Real men clean the iron tip with their fingertips.  Really.  Wanna see
my callouses? :-)

I ****HATE**** this new ROHS sh*t!!!!  I'd like to throttle whomever
came up with this notion.  Green weenie superstition at its worst.
What's even worse is that most parts aren't available anymore in
non-ROHS plated form.  I have to go through and carefully tin each pin
before sticking it in the PCB to make sure it'll be solder-receptive.
Scraping with an Xacto knife follows to fix the pins that aren't.

BTW, Kester #1544 activated rosin flux is da bomb for hand soldering.
With a little special prep, I can even solder a copper wire to
aluminum with it.
