	Make sure they're blue. Blue ones do look neat!

	Sockets, sockets, sockets, sockets, sockets. A little pricey but 
on any IC that costs more than a socket to replace, use a socket. Has 
saved me mind many a time. Actually, I've only soldered about 5 ICs, 2 
w/o sockets, but that's enough to tell a difference. Pull sockets out of 
dead gear like I did and it's pretty affordable.
