this hasn't happened in a long time (since I basically stopped using ebay) but it's good to know that it will still randomly go "hey, enough computer bullshit... you need a new dress!"
Wait a minute. I don't have a cat!
Why is there a cat sitting on my headphones and CRT and controller and Teensy?
CRT repair question:
So I need to clean the bezel of this terminal monitor, as it's in terrible shape. It's screwed onto this metal cage surrounding the actual tube, and seems to be clipped onto the tension band.
Is it save to remove this so I can clean the bezel separate from the tube & frame? I'm worried that because it's clipped onto the tension band, It might cause the tube to implode if I unscrew it from the plastic.

That way you'll be able to begin broadcasting unlicensed pirate TV the very moment the FCC goes on hiatus
The board is looking corroded under the capacitor, and it's got gunk coming out the top and button, but... it tests perfectly fine.
(I'm still replacing it, sure, but I was expecting this cap to read as FUCKT on the little LCD)
