sure, I noticed that. However the holes have to be cleaned anyway one
by one. So with the desoldering station, the time is about the same.
It's just a pity that a PET has to be "tweaked" this much to render it
reliable, while a typical VIC-20 or C-64 is much more reliable even
with the original sockets.
Anyway, my 3032 is now working since hours with only the ROM sockets
changed, I only need to test the IEEE port once I get a replacement
MC3446 driver.
