Pretty impressive Discover Card package arrived in the mail. And this is for a student account!
We own several Tivoli Audio products. One of our Pals and our Model Three both suffered from power problems. In both cases the cause was cracked solder joints. Moving around the Pal (which is portable!) or the nightstand Model Three must have put pressure on the power jack, wiggling the solder joint until it cracked.
In both cases, I added a drop of solder on the failing joints and the radios were good as new. The following photos show where I spotted the cracked joints:

I removed all screws from the back. I did not need to remove anything from the front. However there are several cables that go from back to front that have to be disconnected to get access to the board with the power jack, so I took reference photos like this. This is the top of the unit looking down (although the radio is sideways.)
This photo is from the other side (the bottom) where I could see the cracked solder joint spark as I plugged it in and removed it. I had to remove this board in order to get to the solder joints with a soldering iron.
Fiveforks.com has been running on JustHost.com for several years at an average of $45 / year. They were acquired by BlueHost last year, and now they are going way up in price. I happen to manage the SJN site (and pay for it) with BlueHost, so I decided to consolidate all sites over to BlueHost and avoid paying two hosting fees.
That meant moving over 85,000 files, many of which are photos, thumbnails, and legacy html from either MovableType or Gallery.
Got almost everything moved over. Need to test an image upload.
