Leet Mad SkillZ!!11!!


Right now I feel good. I've fixed a blown motherboard with a soldering iron!

My ECS D6VAA dual PIII motherboard was languishing in the box with no power to CPU#1, and some blown capacitors. I chanced across http://www.vp6-board.com/caps1.htm a while back, and today changed the blown capacitors. The board came straight back to life! HKD 29 on some capacitors and I've resurrected about $3k worth of computer!

Later on tonight, I'm going to put the dual mobo in to Gizmo, my linux box and web/mail/everything server.
