You can find motherboards and other components on eBay. http://www.laptopinventory.com/ has a very good catalog and excellent how-to videos. I have done parts replacement on a few of my laptops (screens, keyboards, touchpads) and if you have ever added RAM to a laptop the process for the other components is not really any different.
I think that now it is time for other European countries to step up and take their responsibility. Many countries seem focused on keeping all migrants/refugees out and in that way shuffling the responsibility to some other country.
It isn't reasonable to expect Turkey and Lebanon to take all refugees from Syria for example.
Also the responsibility of airlines for paying the costs of returning anyone who is not allowed to enter a country should be removed. It is a very hard-line rule that creates a lot of unnecessary suffering and also creates a huge black market (trafficking). 
Other than international treaties, it's a threat to stability. Not only in the middle east, but in Turkey, Greece, the Balkans, Europe as whole and the European Union as an entity. History doesn't really care what you think you owe or don't owe anyone. The question is what you can afford, especially with the change in geopolitics like the rise of China. On the other hand considering the quality of your other comments on HN I'm not even sure why I'm writing this.
Blurring or mosaicing is not very secure at all . To be more safe block out sensitive information with solid black. (Just remember to not leak any information in the metadata, like an embedded thumbnail.)
Yes, that would be the right thing to do. The article itself does link to my work (it's my creation) but it's hardly highlighted, and near the top, where nobody would look. I'm very disappointed in makezine. Just stealing stuff. Could the link itself be changed to actually point at MY article?
Hey Matthias, I came to the video through MAKE Magazine that so far has been a legitimate source of information to the maker community, I tried to edit the post but I couldn't next time I'll double-check that.
