soldering and lock picking

Toronto, 2017.07.09

I caught The Boy picking a lock, yesterday, and using a hot soldering iron. Sorry, I took The Boy to the Maker Festival where he learned to pick a five-pin lock and to solder together a toy.

He did the actual work with solder in one hand and soldering iron in the other so quickly I didn't get a shot because my phone was acting up for that brief moment.

I picked a lock as well. I'm probably the last person whose work touches on information risk to have done so.
