[time-nuts] Did my Tbolt die ?

Cold solder joints on the connector or chip would be my first guess after the
power supply was checked.

Well, I wish it were all that simple. I was originally running the
Tbolt with tboltd under Linux to provide data to one of my ntp servers,
on a real(tm) serial port. Sometime after a reboot (or maybe during ??)
it just stopped working, at least the serial portion. I've tried a bunch
of different machines, including attaching the thing to a Moxa Serial
device server, and i dont get anything out at all. I've let it sit
overnight, power cycling, tried different machines, (VirtualBox, Wine
with USB serial and direct serial) all to no avail. It simply gives no
output at all.
Oh well, I suppose it was good while it lasted. I'm off over to the pond
for holiday, so maybe I'll get "lucky" and it will get happy after I get
back, otherwise I'll have to rip it apart and attempt to figure out
whats wrong -- probably just the serial chip blown somehow.....
