Hopefully the first in a series on how this recapping project goes
I got a couple of Sega Game Gears in a auction a while back, sold as not working. This is a fairly common experience as the GG's have terrible caps which tend to leak and go bad. Luckily the fix is a fairly straight forward recapping and then you should be good to go.

Nasty solder bridge to check for a faulty diode on a cheap and nasty Chinese Nano clone. If your board starts doing odd things, measure your 5V pin and if it's around 2V its highly likely that the diode has popped. #Arduino #nano #hack

Seems the diodes are really cheap and nasty. I bought a couple of replacements and just solder on a new one when they pop. Couple of cents a go so definitely worth it!

AOT Java on a 6502... The force is strong with this bloke!
#java #6502
 
Java famously runs on billions of devices, including workstations, desktops, tablets, supercomputers, and jewelry. Yes, jewelry. Look it up. [Michael] realized Java doesn’t run on Commodore 64s, TI-99s, and a whole bunch of other platforms. Not anymore.…

Replacement soldered on, Optiboot v6 flashed on, good as new! (even better actually as I can now upload at 115200!) #Arduino #nano #win

Lol :-) yeah. Might be a bit problematic with the plethora of languages we have.

Recapping this sucked more than I expected. I'm still not sure if it a) works or b) is actually a 48k model despite the RAM being there. Tomorrow is composite mod and switch on time. #nervous #magicsmoke

I just managed to get my hands on a Replay (I've been watching this project for the better part of a decade). I haven't had a chance to fire it up yet, but this little board promises to be the answer to nearly any retro fetish. Amiga 1200 (AGA!), C64, Apple II etc. Now all I need is some time... 
Tech specs · Amiga compatible · Arcade compatible · Atari compatible · Other platforms · FPGA tech · Forum · Links. Fascinating and extraordinarily versatile. This is a holding page for the new Replay board. Details and ordering information to follow. /MikeJ. Navigation ...
