I'm by no mean an expert, but I think that based on the messages from people
who took the plunge and did the cleaning, the most important part to clean
was actually the electrical contacts, at least for a MP2x00, where the
misalignment seems to be more severe...

brain dump n.: [common] The act of telling someone everything one knows
about a particular topic or project. Typically used when someone is going to
let a new party maintain a piece of code. Conceptually analogous to an
operating system core dump in that it saves a lot of useful state before an
exit. "You'll have to give me a brain dump on FOOBAR before you start your
new job at HackerCorp." See core dump (sense 4). At Sun, this is also known
as `TOI' (transfer of information).
