It is tedious at first, but I’ve gotten used to it.  
I actually prefer surface mount over through-hole in most cases now.

Here’s the next stage of assembly for the COCOVGA boards, also tedious.  :)

The fine pitch ICs on the top side (.5mm pin spacing).  My drag soldering technique is
a little slow, but hey, it gives me great results!  :D
