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. ;)
