Well, like the title initially asks, can you really “bulletproof” an Atari AR-II board? From what I have found on the Internet, and older material like Star Tech Journals, the answer really is no. Pretty much all sources that mention “bulletproof” and “AR-II” on the same page are only taking about performing the Sense mods, and nothing else.
A small amount of pages mention replacing parts (caps, regulators, etc.) due to their age, but that is not bulletproofing either – that is just a good idea. But I think I can actually bulletproof it, and maybe other power supplies as well.

This past Sunday evening (04/22/07) a teacher at my child’s daycare died from a stroke. Her name was Klara S. and she was a very nice woman and a kind soul.
While on a prior contract, I had arranged to spend some time once a week with my kid while at daycare. Klara was one of the teachers that was taking care of my daughter during that time. I found her to be an excellent teacher for the room as she was very attentive and had great kid-sense, meaning that she was able to keep her eyes on everything while still getting things done.
To my knowledge, she is survived by a husband, a daughter, a son and one grandchild.
All of our best wishes for her family and friends.
