Walking through Toy's'r'Us.  Product linkage to movies and studios all over the place.  Rows and rows of shelving dedicated to Disney princesses.  Rows and rows more defining girls in "the pink rows".  Boy's stuff in other rows, lots of "Call of Duty" toys, lots of Lego movie links, then lots of Star Wars.  All of this shit was exploiting the trendy social themes, and there were "Hunger Games" links, and the renewed woman-empowered Star Wars.  Then I see this:

Just a bit much!  Is this for all the lady Jeddi's pleasure?
What is this thing supposed to be?

It is that pesky ribbon connection.  I am uncomfortable with that connection.  I pulled the panel out, and followed the suggestions for cleaning all contacts in each connector.  I tried to burnish the contact edge of the ribbon, I used a white eraser to burnish, and followed up with a contact cleaner pen.  I wiped the edge dry, and reinserted it into the connector block.  The first attempt did not fix the SE error problem.  Second attempt, I used an acid brush (a brush used to clean new solder connections) dipped in alcohol, and forced the bristles directly into the board connector, then wicked away the excess liquid, following up with a canned air blast.  Finally, when I reinserted the ribbon, I worked it in and out a couple of times before locking the connector.  That worked.

I am completely underwhelmed with the quality of workmanship, and the non-robust design Samsung put into this appliance. I am now worried that our Samsung stove-top/ convection oven combo is headed for troubles with its electronics.  I suggest to anyone shopping for a kitchen stove, or overhead mount microwave, to steer clear of anything that has smarts, and is gadget loaded.  Get a gas oven, with the only electronics installed being those really cool piezo-electric igniters.  Really.  Go for robust, but simple.  Kitchen appliances go through a lot of Hell!

Shot on film, or digital?  I really want rich contrast like this!

Hey y'all, I need a virtual research department.  I need still photos, art, and music files covering the historic period 1835-1850 from the central Tejas region, to Mexico.  The topic is Juan Seguin, and I am tasked with editing a short video about him.  Any serious melodic folk tunes in espanol about Juan would be greatly appreciated.  Have to do public domain only!  I cannot afford lawyers!
