Very cool, and not the worst thing to repair.  My 11/05 has been sitting 
around for years with some sort of power problem which I've been dreading, 
but this encourages me to work on it.

I also appreciate the links to the archive.org scans of the manuals & 
prints.  I have boxes full of physical copies and I'm reminded I should 
check before committing to scan any of them.
