  1. When my wife was starting her eBay shop, she bought a bunch of the ones like Ember has - I'd have to check whether we still have them, but if you want a pair, I think we were selling them for $10 - if anyone is interested, let me know and I'll dig them out and supply pics. Cheers Richard

  14. When I was selling stuff on eBay (mostly scrapbooking stuff my wife picked up, and never used), lot of the addresses were in the country - so maybe for some people, buying at an inflated price is cheaper than a trip to the city? Don't know if it's the same for slots? Cheers Richard
  15. Phil, Finally, something I can help you with!! As Ember suggests, use a tripod, one of these will do the trick: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2332 Next, move the camera away from the subject, and zoom in, rather than moving the camera close. Last, use the 2 second timer so that you are not physically pressing down on the camera as you take the picture, when you are focusing so close, depressing the shutter can sometimes move the camera around, causing it to blur. HTH!!! Richard
  16. I think one of our HO members has already made a lexan copy ... Cheers Richard

I have an Apple ][ in my garage, as well as a couple of SE/30's (one was used on stage for MIDI in a duo, the other was a backup), just threw out a couple of 7200 PPC's and still have a 6200 with all my olf MIDI files still on ... soon to be transferred to a mirror door G4 ... Damn, I have a lot of old junk!! Cheers Richard
