what is the best solder?

That sticks to the pcb and will melt at low temps? Specific futures and possibly websit would be appreciated.

No solder will stick to the PCB. For vmods you can use rosin core solder. You can find it at Radio Shack.

RadioShack solder sucks... it will get the job done, but it's not the greatest 'quality' stuff....

I've been using Multicore (A div. of Loctite) for about 12 years now, and it's awesome... You can probably find it at your local electronics warehouse but if not, I know you can order it from http://mcm.newark.com/ ...

I generally use 22 (.025" dia) guage, but if you are going to be soldering really small surface-mount components, I'd use .015" dia solder...

The Radioshack stuff will work, but once you use this stuff, you'll see the difference...

Still with the "Im with stupid" smilies.

0.032 Rosin Core will serve you sell, and I recommend you buy some flux also.

Exactly, if you need good adhesion and flow, flux first... there is no brand or composition that is a substitute for pre-flux. That doesn't mean that I always do flux, LOL, too lazy.
