Any other examples of semi-official fixes like this one? The only other one
that comes to mind is the infamous "Atari ST twist", where you grasped both
sides of the case firmly, and twisted the ends in opposite directions. The
flexing of the motherboard supposedly reseated a chip that frequently came
loose, without, of course, requiring you to open the case, and thereby void
your warranty.

wasnt there a similar issue with the TRS80 model 1's expansion interface? I
remember hearing that it had a dodgy connection and many people devised
methods of maintaining good contact.
