    It DOES! What better time to learn than now?!

    Given the horrendous failure of my last attempt at soldering (on another power connector - the powerbook g3 had this same problem), and the attempt before that (on a CRT monitor) a better time would be the far, far distant future, or at least on something a bit less critical than a motherboard.

    If you're using the AC adapter with the straight connector, it may be more worthwhile or as important to arrange a cross-ship for the curved tip adapter as below, and if you're interested, please drop me a PM at cl-Albert.
    You can also try to arrange this with our normal support, but may not be as easy, so feel free to check back if necessary.
