Shorts! and not because its summer.

So it's finally may in St. John's and to say hello it snowed all day.  Lovely slushy stuff. So no wearing shorts.

However, we have other shorts.  The electrical kind.  Luckily our power supply is smart and decides to not turn on when there is a dead short. So for future reference, all you board designers who think you are clever and add power and ground planes on the top and bottom of your boards.  Use nylon stand-offs or at least leave enough room that the aluminum doesn't cut through the solder mask and make your board think it should be summer time.
