I just ruined my third dreamcast.
I am working (if you can still call it that) on an internal vga port.
I am following mmmonkeys guide on the internal vga.
My main problem is the following:
Have a look at the pcb.

The (original) blops of solder tend to come off the pcb. It looks like I am ripping apart the pcb itself - the wire I use then holds my blop of solder, combined with the original solder-blop and some pices of thin copper, that came off the pcb itself.
Once the original blob (and copper) is off the pcb I got no more change to get it back to the pcb, since there is no solder or copper left on the pcb at all.
What I am doing wrong?
Is my soldering iron to hot/harsh? Am I applying to much force to the wires? Why do the original blops tend to come off?
Please enlighten me.
Kind regards, and thanks for your help in advance,
