Hey , no sweat , I have already replaced my power switch once and decided that I
better get another one , as it doesn't look like the replacement is any better ,
and luckily I have a cobbled together vacuum solder extractor at home so
removing the switch was a breeze , but not something I want to do everyday

Anyway guess I will be calling cerritos on monday :)
