>>circuit and external battery did work. The last attempt was to grind away
Hmmm...too bad there isn't a socketable solution to provide voltage to the
internals of the chip otherwise you could provide an in-socket connector to
a rechargeable NIMH. Hell this would be a good idea to do even with having
to modify the chip. You'd have a good NVRAM that would almost never go
bad - at least until the battery reached it's charging cycle limit.
Of course this is all totally shot down by the fact that a new lithium
battery would keep it running for another 5 - 10 years upon which time _may_
have reached full doorstop status.
