   That's good point. A lot of the problems that I've had with the 1000s
are due to poor contacts on those cards. I've found that if the contacts
are dry it's very hard to seat the cards. Now I take a paper towel and
dampen it with WD-40 and wipe the contacts good with it. It helps clean the
contacts and it leaves a light film of kerosene (the primary ingredient of
WD-40) on the contacts and makes it much easier to seat and remove the
circuit boards.
