[vcf-midatlantic] PSA: Amiga 600 and Amiga 1200 can have leaky capacitors that eat PCB

Learned the hard way after trying to use my Amiga 600 this weekend to 
archive some software. Green screen. Figured it was PSU. Got home, popped 
the RF shield off and sigh. Caps leaked electrolyte and it ate through 
some traces.

Had no idea this was an issue, I know about the Lithium batteries in the 
A2000/A3000/A4000 and A500 RTC module.

Going to have to try to repair, almost thinking about paying someone else 
to do it if there is someone reputable in the USA.
