    Hard Rubbish Find

    On the way to my sister's on Christmas day, I spotted an old AT clone on the hard rubbish outside someone's house. So, much to the dismay of the other half, I stopped and grabbed it. Turns out the motherboard was seriously corroded from a leaking battery, and the hard disk and floppy drive had...

    I fixed my ST225 with sticky tape!

    This is a quick video showing my ST225 running with the head band sticky taped back on after snapping off. As stated in the video, I wouldn't ever recommend this. But hey, it worked! I won't be using it for anything, obviously. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjBHwJfBYIE
