About 20 or so VPS providers closed down today. My host is not in the list, but I do not want to give them too much credit.
I have backed up the site. If it goes down, you know why.

Picked this thing up for 500 burgerbux from some guy. Made no noise at first. Been working on it off and on for the past couple months.

First thing I did was a general cleanup. The key contact bars were pretty corroded so I hit them with some rubbing alcohol and emery cloth.

The old power supply was janky as fuck, so I made a new one.

This board here, the output board, had this giant leaky capacitor on it, which I replaced. There was also a janky voltage divider circuit for generating a 6V "signal ground," so I ripped that out and replaced it with a more modern regulator chip. Once I did all that, and fixed a missing ground, it suddenly started working again.


nice, hobbies r gud
