That's a good tip, but I've read from somewhere, I forgot where, that is specifically says that you should NOT solder them while plugged together... I think one of the guys at RC10B4.com said so... I may be wrong, but I do remember reading that. I'm not sure, I'll get back to you when I figure it out.
