If that's your intention, then you should go ahead with it.

Please don't get me wrong--like I said before, I'm all for tearing things apart to see how they work. As long as you realize that it might be a lost cause going forward, and it might not be easily fixable.

In the 90s I was buying up all kinds of gadgets as I was traveling across the Southwest US. I'd haunt local pawn shops and secondhand stores looking for something that I could pick up for a few dollars and possibly transform into a working device again.

Let me give you one last piece of advice--Mouser. They have a catalog full of all kinds of electronic parts that must be 2-3" thick, if you see you need a part. Don't make the mistake I've made, and search for components through Chinese suppliers. I'm still getting emails from several of those weekly...I've tried responding and telling them I'm no longer interested, tried being somewhat rude and demanding they stop spamming me, even bouncing back the emails thru OS X Mail's "bounce" feature. It's obviously a one-way street, and they don't read such emails.


"The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place." --Douglas Adams
