Ed: Do you mean that, by runnnig my reserved Amiga 1200 once a year and play, let's say, SuperFrog to the end, this computer willl have a VEEEERY long life? Does ocassional use keep the AMIGA capacitors in good shape so in practice they won't die? Is that the solution for avoiding electrolitic chemicals being spread on the motherboard by capacitors?
If it's easy to do I would swap 1200s once a year. Use one for a year, then use the other for a year. Like I said in the other message, just sitting there things can go bad and do.
