@Retrograde A short is basically a capacitor with infinite capacitance(sorta...) so you got some killer bang(literally, I imagine) for your buck
@Retrograde gosh, yes. i bought some motor drivers a while back with massive solder paste globs under the chip nearly shorting it out
@Retrograde wow. as a former coworker of mine used to say : on one (or in this case two) solder pads you used up the entire yield of solder a peruvian mountain peasant family churns out per year!
