Oddly enough it was yesterday. I had got a bi-colour LED and it came in an 0603 package. That meant it had four connections one in each corner of the package. I had to solder it on strip board and I thought I couldn't do it. Anyway I did it.
Mine was an LGA-14 (analog accelerometer). Bought them for fun because they were very cheap. Second try I managed to get it soldered on a home-etched board but it started smoking after about 10 minutes because of (I assume) some leftover flux under it.
but Freescale doesn't recommend them in new designs for some reason
my fingernot just burned but accidentally soldered a smd resistor to it
