okaaay!  so the main and the EC pcbs arrived from eurocircuits,
they're all silver because they're prototype-ready, covered entirely
in solder, no markings or masks at all.  i experimented with the USB
connectors, and the results can be seen above.  heating up the boards
took longer than i expected (even with an 800 watt ceramic bed and a
200 watt overhead lamp) but it got there in the end, the solder melted
happily on the pins of the USB connector and we're good.

i can do this :)
