Can anybody comment on the toaster oven approach?

Is it practical for things like this?  How much does a solder mask cost?  How 
much other stuff do I need?  Does the solder paste need to be refrigerated 
and other quirks like that?

What are the chances of a newbie getting a 44-QFN right on the first try?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
