Whoa, take a deep breath, back away from the Newton...

I was hella pissed the first time I tried to re-seat my SER-001 (rev A). I
ended up ripping the entire header connector off of the SER board. I think
steam started coming out of my ears.

Then there was the time I tried to fix my 2100's power connector and killed
it. $229 and a few weeks later Apple sent me a new one - a pretty expensive
mistake to make for a university student :(
