Modified Solenoid Connection

Seeing as I was running low on compressed air in the installed canister, I decided to take this opportunity while swapping cans to redo how I connect the solenoid to the power supply.

I picked up a very inexpensive PC fan connector (the same as those that I use in the dome) and snipped it in half.

I soldered one of the halves to the solenoid, and the other to the droid's 12 volt side of the power supply.

I hooked it all up and tested it on the droid, and all was well. Now it's much easier to deal with unhooking the solenoid.
