Trying to sort out my loom and solder things. Anyone got any tips on soldering wire to wire. I keep ending up with F@cking huge blobs of solder. I burnt my fingers three times last night too :)

when I solder wires together, flux them, tin both bits first, then more flux, hold them together and heat up with the soldering iron and they should join, add a little flux cored solder at the joining stage to help them flow, works for me, good luck.

PS Does anyone else have issues when trying to view pics with internet explore 11 ? If I use IE11 I cant see the pics, If I use Firefox I can. Why is that?
