Bending NES pins

I've finally built up the courage to give fixing my NES a try. I'm at the point where if if doesn't work I'll just buy a new pin connector, but I've heard bending the pins usually fixing the blinking screen problem. I've found this article on the process,, but the pictures are pretty useless as they don't show the actually bending process just a weak text picture. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this and how it worked out. Also if anyone knows where I could find a better illustration of the actually bending of the pins I would appreciate.

It works fine. Just use a flathead screwdriver and bend the pins up a little. The other alternative is to just by a new 72-pin connector.
