All the logic is good, except the CPU, but several of the card connectors are rotted underneath.  This PCB is a gift from the universe!

Fed-Ex was supposed to be delivering my parts from Wales today, I doubt that’s happening.  Even if I don’t get them, I’m planning to do the tear-down on my two A3000’s this weekend, due to the weather forecast.  The batteries don’t look that bad, I’m hoping the underside is okay.

I’ve been having fun with the A1200, and can’t wait to get the parts to add CF-to-IDE adapters to it and the A600.  I think my wife and kids think I’ve lost it.
