Here is the notorious LCD connector on the Texas Instruments Voyage 200.

FIXED!!!

I got another parts calc today (that was working perfectly) and now I have 2. Well, I have 3..but keeping the brand new one in a foam case…that thing will be worth millions one day (Amazon is still selling them new for almost $1000CAD…yes…almost one thousand dollars!!). This one that arrived from Austria today will be the one I will be using to learn fun shit (ASM and C programming on the 68000……yes, as I mentioned before, this has the same CPU as the Amiga 500…how fucking cool is that?)

I will obviously never sell them….

So, here is some sad news…that is good news.

My beloved iPad Pro 2020 that I use CONSTANTLY has died. Black screen of death after only 2 months of use. Dealing with Apple was a fucking NIGHTMARE. I felt like I was dealing with autistic 8 year olds, incredibly dumb and unhelpful + the hold times were 30 minutes+.

Messaged Amazon through the chat and described my situation and they sent a replacement without wanting the old one (at least as far as I can tell).

WTF? What kind of a business model is this? This is insanity.
