I also have two old ng 1.5 m/b's sitting in my 'waiting for eco-recycling'
bin.  Since I have already robbed them for most of the parts James says to
remove, (the microSD, the RTC battery and the Wifi card are already at home
in other machines), looks like they might be just about ready for you if you
wanted to cook up another batch of XO brownies.  Have no idea if their fault
is solder-flow related; but, let me know and they're in the mail  :-)
