Folks, use a solder sucker and a solder wick. There should be many articles out there on using solder (extractor) sucker and wick. But basically you melt solder , solder sucker sucks up the most of it (Put the tip right over the end of the metal leg RIGHT after melting) All has to happenen very quickly.

No offence to any one but the article author did say not advised for your first solder experience, and using solder wick etc would be a veteran solder master trick.
