    What do you mean, "dry" joints? Pads where the solder has sublimated? (Unlikely)

    Re: How To: Posting Pictures

    One quick thing to mention; if you're using another provider, like Flickr, they have a rule that you must link back externally linked images. So if you use

    So, in the end, I didn't find any obvious signs of something blowing up. No components were visably brown or black, no charring, no obvious scent of "burn" or "dead fish". This power supply is also...
