That's used to program the microchip, so if you can program it before soldering and dont ever plan to upgrade it, it's not necessary. However, Spark Fun sells them for $4 (they're a very reputable business, and I saw in your other post that you don't want to use a credit card, but that's no problem, you can pay them with PayPal)
