i'm not sure about the st one's, but i'm pretty sure that dallas have
discontinued the nvram chips as used in 4c class hardware. rather than
forking out huge sums, why no just replace the battery? i've done this
with some success. you have to bit a bit careful when carving out the
old one, but after that, it's a doddle.
