I have long since lost the link but it was a trace that needed to be cut 
on one model and on another a pin needed to be lifted on the ic.

Well, I was just considering whipping something up under php and mysql. 
  I do a lot of LAMP programming for work and it carries over into my OS

stuff like the UPC database where you can look up all kind of UPC's as
