OK, I've connected the 2 right dots over the laser cut. I still have 8 pipes. I took lots of pictures (ftp://public:email@example.com:444/
). That address is a server running in my basement, please don't DoS attack it lol. Today I'm going to try going around the laser cut and see if it makes any difference, I'm also going to test the resistance of the dots up there and see if any are grounded. I did scrape down to the dots, they had some kind of hard wax covering them.
If I'm reading that right, I have a week 41 card of 2004.
Maybe they changed the way they cards were built in week 40. I'm thinking they did the laser cut after they did the wax covering instead of before, possibly exposing a ground in the bottom of the pit. Later today I should know as long as nothing comes up. I'll take some higher quality picters today (I didn't realize my camera was set to 2 stars instead of 3).
