That's frustrating! No display for a while so!
How about going "old school"?
Get a length of broomstick (about a foot long), with one end cut flat. Mark a center point on the end, then use a drill to drill out a hole. Drive a long wood screw into place (tightly), then cut the head off. File the end to a point (doesn't have to be too sharp, btw). Heat the end up on a stove (a gas stove is best), then tin the end with rosin-core solder. Hold it like you would a dagger. The point won't hold the heat long, but it might be good enough to get a few wires soldered. This of course is assuming you have ever soldered before. If you have -never- soldered before, disregard everything above; it will be waaaay too dangerous and messy to try to learn this way...
