Aaron:
  Hmmm, nearly once a week! That's almost a record.
  If those are puchdowns then they should be soldered anyway. Techs will
be unlikely to try using one that's been soldered.
  Also, if you're in a building with other tennants, then you should
locate wherever you circuits appear in the building and tag them yourself
with something that's real obvious. Go put on your tool belt, grab your
"butt-set" and dig in there like you own the place.

Good luck,

Chuck
