Not in my experience. However, if you plugged the HDD cable the wrong way on an A600/A1200, it would be a different story.

For interests sake, what is the best method of repairing battery-acid damaged vias?

Not a terrible wallpaper, but I've never been a huge fan of the stupid boing ball. I'd much rather have the Tick logo, or the "futuristic" logo that Commodore briefly used.

Galahad is (as usual) correct. However the Amiga SF2 port would have still sucked, no matter what happened. As do the MK conversions.
