RE: Gianmario's 64c mystery solved

Not to be an _I_told_you_so_ but that is a problem that we at Raymond 
Commodore have had several times and we have had the broken traces 
too - using wire-wrap wire (very thin solid core) to replace the 
broken connections is our usual fix.  Those E rev boards are tricky 
to desolder on even for the very experienced tech.  I think that I 
have never had to replace that 68 pin PLA/Combined_Logic on one of 
the C64Cs.  (Thankfully)
