Damn, that smashed up machine looks like an STE, that's criminal, especially since it's a case with brass inserts for the screws.

And finally, Atari time is a little limited at the moment as I got home from Scotland on Thursday to be greeted by two 8 week old puppies.

I originally bought solder paste and syringes separately, but it wasn't really working out.
