Thank you all so much for the information.
I have a case from a bundler that has a fan and plugging it into the GPIO where they instruct to sort of defeats the purpose of GPIO bridging. I might have burned the thing out one day into ownership.
I guess I will solder V+ to the bottom of the board and recommend that they fire their case engineer.
Now I need to find the thread for partitioning a 64GB microSD card into 2 ea 32GB partitions, so that I can have a OS and Data drive, as only *nix can do.
Take care, God bless and be safe.
