Radio Shack: color TV tuner cleaner. You shouldn't need it for memory, 
but if you ever have to clean/lubricate something electric/electronic, 
it's the best.

I've never had *that* much trouble seating memory, save the one time I 
tried to put a regular DIMM in a DDR slot. *sigh*

For removal, I have a piece of 10/12 ga copper bent so that it'll hook 
the two holes on the memory stick. Works better than the little levers. 
Especially when they're broke. ;)
