BTW, after removing the power resistor, you must be careful to clean off
excess solder, because the crucial gap is small and "embedded" in the
large pads. I had to use ChipQuick to get the resistor off, then I had
to add regular solder back to the pad to alloy with the ChipQuik, as
ChipQuik doesn't flow onto solder wick very well.
