I'm back!

Got the new USB-port today and soldered it in place. 
And it works! 

1) USB-port is good to go! 

2) The tiny USB-port. The specs say "reflow procedure only". Phuh!
 Kind of hard to see in this picture, but there are five small prongs that needed to be soldered in place. Well, four - one isn't used on the Chipkit. And they all fit inside a 4mm area (roughly 1/6th of an inch) so it was barely possible to solder by hand!

3) Powered up and ready to go!
