re: salty, pinephone, techbros
as an aside, wanna know where I've never seen a "works for me" thrown out as a response to an earnestly expressed problem?
on the mailing list for the rc2014 z80-based retrocomputing platform. in fact, the participants of that list go to great lengths to try and help walk through any necessary troubleshooting with all who come looking for help.
you may ask why it's different in that venue, but I personally believe it's because the platform attracts folk who've already realized that it's not possible to predict all the failure modes of a reasonably complicated machine, in soft or hard wares, so treating folk like you're sure they're wrong without examining the case is just silly.
