disassembling STacy with a SLEDGEHAMMER.

Thanks to Steven Stengel's suggestion, I got it open and fixed the display,
which (as suspected) was just the cable avulsing from the mainboard.

Naturally now the plastic snaps don't match up again and the display makes an
awful groaning noise unless I cinch the whole business together when I open
it.

I can hardly wait to install a new hard drive in this rat trap. (sarcasm)
What was Atari thinking?

On the plus side, I coincidentally found a very nice Mega ST 4, dual monitors,
hard disk and blitter. Perhaps I will retire the STup, er, STacy to a display
piece and use that instead.
