STFM teardown with upgrades and other videos

Postby catmando » Mon Mar 02, 2015 7:40 am

Stumbled across this set of video's yesterday that I hadn't seen before (by YouTube user GadgetUK164, probably someone on here).

Thought it was a good excuse to use the AF's new inline YouTube video feature

Very good videos but people who talk that fast and choppy with all the words in one constant stream, make my chest tight and my heart pump with stress. I wish the modern world was slower and quieter like it used to be not so long ago :(

No I stand by my original comment about modern life; we would all be a lot happier and calmer if we all made an effort to slow down for each other. That will never happen of course. Anyway...nothing against the person in the videos, as he seems a decent chap. I find watching TV very stressful these days..... over loud, fast and aggressive especially when it is totally inappropriate to do so. It's a crazy world.

Does this new feature work only on a Desktop configuration? I mean, no tablets? I have tried with Firefox and Safari on a tablet and it doesn't show the videos...
Trying to learn...

Seems that way, videos not showing within browser on my iPad, and video links only partially work on tapatalk

I saw these videos a while back. The STfm teardown was of particular help to me as I was able to use the information to replace the motherboard on a non-working ST. I can now open up and disassemble an ST, replace a disk drive/keyboard/PSU and put it back together again.

Hopefully, I'll get round to learning how to solder so I can fix existing parts instead of replacing them with new ones. I have a basic soldering kit from Maplin lying around which I've been too timid to use.
