[vcf-midatlantic] VCF East Clinic kudos

Once again, the Glitchworks workshop saved my bacon last weekend when I noticed the 5V rail was climbing out of spec on my Nova.  I removed the entire power supply board and brought it over to the CDL, where Jonathan and I desoldered the failing chip and installed a socket in record time.  Once that Hakko desoldering iron was cleaned up, it worked a charm.  While the Nova wasn't 100% after that, it wasn't trying to self-destruct any more.  That sort of space to work on systems that need emergency repairs at the show is very much appreciated.
Thanks again for the help,-Alexander 'Z' Pierson

That sounds like a blast.  I have a XOR S-100-12 stuffed with random
cards.  I'm sure I can track down manuals for most of them, but having
some S-100 expertise on hand to reconfigure and test this would be
