Glad it worked, that's good information to have.

OTOH, it appears you graduated from the "The bigger the glob, the better the job" school of soldering...
The man who holds to a belief because of tradition, or hides it because he fears he may be shown to be wrong, does not love the truth but manifests a coward’s faithfulness to his prejudices.

^^^I cleaned that up with a solder braid after taking the pic, so no, I don't really subscribe to that philosophy. It was a pretty tiny area in which to solder, so I tinned the capacitor's leads with a bit of extra solder so I wouldn't have to add solder when making the initial attachment. Also, that "glob" on the right is not solder at all -- it is a band of metal (it looks like solder due to my crappy photography) Anyway, it's a "prettier" joint now.

And I'm sorry about the crappy pictures -- I have a cheap phone. You can still get the gist of it though, no?
