● Description

My trusty CRT went *pop* some time ago and I've finally got around to fixing it. Hopefully this will help some of you save your own monitors and do it safely.

Time is the most valuable thing we have. Patrons create a reliable monthly income that allows me the time to dedicate to creating content. My goal is to reach 1000 Official Cave Dwellers to come along for the journey that is RMC and support my dream. Thank you.
