DocScrutinizer05I don't even know if that's one or more devices16:08
DocScrutinizer05or one in many pieces, or whatever16:08

whitequarkummm16:09
whitequarkit has 11 photos16:09
whitequarkwhich ones do you mean?16:11
whitequarkif you mean the 4th with capacitors, the repairperson has soldered the blown caps of capacitors together16:12
whitequarkif you mean the 7th, it's the thermal grease16:12

DocScrutinizer05and what happened to that nvidia thing?16:15
DocScrutinizer053rd photo16:15
DocScrutinizer05that looks like after atomic blast16:15
whitequark"if a BGA chip doesn't want to desolder, you can of course tear it off, and then put it back on superglue, the owner won't even notice"16:19
whitequarkall examples are from different devices16:20
DocScrutinizer05whitequark: hehe, so a pun16:41
whitequarkpun?16:45
DocScrutinizer05sort of joke, irony, whatever16:53

DocScrutinizer05I guess the whole page is a joke17:09
DocScrutinizer05when a capacitor vented, there's pretty little use in soldering the vent to seal it again17:10
whitequarkno, it's not a joke17:16
