This seems like a perfect solution for us. From the look of things, it's actually much thinner than the original block.
Man I didn't think my little design would make the rounds so much. :D Color me flattered!

True, didn't know the Ataris used the same DS12887-compatible chips as the PCs did.

There's more information on the newer revisions of the RTC module in the other thread, if anyone is interested in getting/making some;

I don't know how, but I think I messed up the one I got from Arne, after replacing it with a full DS12887, it seems to work fine. Guess in another 10 years I'll look again :P
