    +1 Mark sent me his 'minimalist' interconnects to play with, which helped me with a related purchasing decision. Come to think of it...maybe he would those back now :#

    I don't want anything back :p
    You've seen the junkpile that's here now.

    @gyosa -- thanks for the shout-out. Very nice of you; I'm a little embarrassed, actually.
    I do hope you'll post a photo of the finished product at some point, if the opportunity presents itself.

    I mean, one could, in a pinch (heh-heh, I made a funny), hold some heat shrink tubing in place with an alligator clip or two. You know, if one didn't have a heat gun handy. Or maybe even a match or an incandescent light bulb...

    ;)

    PS Cat fur socks are warm, soft and snuggly -- not great for folks with allergies, though :open_mouth:
