I thought about that but the system has been sealed fairly well since
I put it in my climate controlled storage space. Still, it does look
like something was spilt on it. No open slots or anything so I don't
know what could have gotten inside.

I have another AT&T PSU I've been using to power the hard drive on my
Amiga 1000. I may find a new power supply for the hard drive and use
that one as a replacement for the corroded one. Still, it would be
nice to know if something was dumped inside or the PSU itself
released something.

I used a Kodak DC210 digital camera I borrowed from work. It's an
$800 camera so I'd hope it would take decent pictures. :-) I'm using
it to redo most of the images on my web site. It's a great camera.
And those images were taken at it's lower resolution.
