I hope it never happens to you again but I read a tip for staightening bent CPU pins that sound pretty good. (I can't remember where I read this tip).
Remove the lead from a mechanical pencil. The shaft of the pencil should be 0.1 mm, the right size to fit over CPU pins. Push the now empty shaft over the bent pin and staighten it. Do not go past vertical. On your first bend it is better to be short of vertical to avoid snapping the pin.
Without knowing which pin you snapped we can't tell you how critical it is. If you are lucky it was a Vss (ground) or Vcc (VCore pin). There are lots of both on every CPU.
No, but you could get yer dick stuck in a LGA-775!

And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" Huh
So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign</pre><p></font color=red>
This remindes me of a guy I know that tryed to fit a K7 in a p4 board by snipping off some of the pins with wire cutters. Then he smelled smoke and called me up... All I did was laugh and hold my sides!
