Stage 2 of my Amiga 3000 repair went well today. All traces of the ghastly akali from the leaky battery have been cleaned up with distilled vinegar, and two damaged sockets successfully removed despite some horribly corroded solder.
It's drying now after a thorough flush with water then isopropyl alcohol. Next I'll need to check for damaged traces but at a first assessment it's not as bad as I'd feared.
Thankd to @perloid for some his helpful advice earlier.
The Duffercast 17 is out, entitled Bleeding Nipples. Health warning: I might be heard singing. Featuring @thelovebug @firstname.lastname@example.org @Moosical and the cool Swiss French guy whose handle I can't find here.
Trying out the @fedilab app. First impressions are good. I like how it auto completed my instance name in setting up my account. Quick and easy.
Thanks to everyone who came to @email@example.com and ESPECIALLY everyone who helped! I will be in recovery for a week but it was epic. I'm in Manchester till tomorrow. Tonight I will mostly be around the Pendulum hotel bar if anyone wants to catch up. #oggcamp
