Can anyone socket my PCM for me?

I've bricked a couple now and at the rate I like to "Tinker" i'll probably brick a couple more. I have 0 soldering/electronics skills and probably will stay that way.

I've heard of people "socketing" their PCMs to allow easy replacement of chips when the flashing process halts. I believe I still have to program the chips before I flash using some sort of eprom programmer? I know very little about this and searching and reading on the topic only makes my head hurt. If it were as simple as paying someone to socket my PCM, picking up a handful of chips and spending a couple hundred on said programmer i'd say count me in.

Input and thoughts?
