I did, when I ran a few. I have one now that I haven't fired up in a
long time. But Back In The Day(tm), before I realized it was a crap
design, I had lots of overheating problems with them, and later the
infamous "fried 74F623" issue. I replaced about half a dozen of those.
If you haven't put a heat sink on your Multia's 74F623 chip, I would
suggest doing so when you can.
