Thanks for the kind words, guys. I like that combo too. It was interesting to see someone walk up and put on some cans, get an enthused look in their eyes, and then start reading the specs and realize that what they were listening to was a kit. There is this moment of uncertainty that appears in some expressions, "oh no, I can't do that!"
I assure you that just about anyone can do it. Hopefully we can get more of you guys to try out a soldering iron in the coming year.
What is a good kit for a novice to start with?
