#introductions Hello Fediverse. My name is Emanuel - i am an 80's computer kid. Worked in IT since the middle of the 1990's, mostly in eCommerce and video games. I have a burning passion for: my family and kids, programming, digital content creation, demoscene (my handle is "tubo") , IT security and privacy protection, system tinkering and hacking, video game system hardware and many things more. Author of the Retrochecker video game collector app ( @retrochecker ) and the HAM GBA devkit.

Been trying to fix my trusty 15yr old Panasonic projector (PT-AE 900) but now after removing a heat sink, I guess this is likely it :-/ not sure if I should hunt for a donor system. This is one of the three LCD driver chips, and looks like it’s fried from inside. Opinions , tips how one could find spare parts more than welcome.
Finally retired the old 1password setup. Kind of missing the slick UI, but KeePassXC is just more sensible these days.
If anyone at 1password reads this: I really hoped you'd keep around a standalone, 'paid' version of your apps. I bought all of your clients (Mac/Win/iOS) back in the day, but i want to be able to run the solution offline / do my own folder syncing.
