" Just made the decision to junk a eMac 1.25GHz because of badcaps. Irritating
" because that era's machines are still serviceable, at least until the
" electrolytics start futzing out on you.

you wouldn't be close to 01830, would you?  i'd take this twin to my
gf's emac off your hands...  and i'd probably try dusting my
desoldering skills off and replacing all the caps.

hers also had badcaps, just after apple's warrantee ran out, but the
local svc ctr let us sweet-talk them into swapping their leftover
spare board for free, back in '06.  it's run flawlessly since, until a
power hit crashed the pmu a few weeks ago.  what a )*^$#@! pain to fix
that, but at least it wasn't more serious.
