    This is definitely a very cool utility. There has been a need/req. for a software floppy emulator that this could fill (i.e. when you don't feel like writing 12 disk images to actual floppies...

    I agree. Luckily I have two more of them which don't have "Shadow Lord Caused Damage" but are still not working. I am going to start with the ESR meter and checking the diodes again...

    That, like cars, depends on your skill level. I doubt in our life time things like capacitors, resistors, and diodes are going to become "impossible" to find (Even if you are teenager now). Just...

    Well the capacitors arrived lot more quickly then expected from China. This was the condition of the original capacitor:

    Well, I finally had a chance to come back to this project. I checked all the capacitors with an ESR meter and nothing looked "off the charts". Also there was no dead shorts. There was one bad looking...
