Stese is on a distinguished road

my one piece of advice when soldering D-Sub connectors... always plug them into the opposite socket while soldering... it helps with the heat dissipation away from the plastic, and prevents melting (and thus being a pain to connect).

Not normally an issue when you are adept with an Iron, but while learning, it does save a plug or two!
