Soldering the Connector

So here's a quick video of me soldering the new connector onto the PCB.  Honestly, I did a somewhat sloppy job on it.  I was a bit heavy handed with the solder, but I'm a firm believer in "more is better than less", especially with solder joints.  I also neglected to use flux on the pads and the pins, but technically there's flux in the solder, just not as much as would be optimal.

Here are some pictures of the end result
