Default Shuttle MS50N P4 Board - Bad Caps

I got a LOAD of these from a corporate network to repair (80+ so far). According to their head tech, they didn't even live a year. They're packed with 'OST' caps, and we all know how nice those are.....

It's taken a while to recap them, close to 7 days so far, and I still have about 15 to go.... I could probably crank 'em out faster, but then this actually feels like a 'job'....

Once this batch goes back, another is coming in... It's a 1-man show here too... No wonder I havent posted much lately... I just decided to take this weekend off and play...

nice earner though heh, you should try working in an office, i try to hide in the server room otherwise i have to find people's dissapearing menubars and stuff. i started doing another office down the corridor also. the two VL6s came from there. could run the whole building if i had a few people. setup a datacenter and stuff with a fat connection, lease pcs and stuff. I will do that somewhere if things turn bad. thing is that i dont really enjoy support but it is something which i know what to do. if i can get small office linux file/mailserver solutions down then we will be in business. you cannot imagine on what crap some people are running a business on down here. there is lots of work to be done but only cost effective reliable solutions will get the work. just lost some business cos I quoted 1200 euro for each new comp while the other guy quoted 800.
