Two-Stroke Mechanic

I'm looking for someone who might be able to do some work on my Tomos two-stroke moped.  It broke down a few weeks ago and has no compression, and I'm hoping it only has a blown head gasket.  My repair shop closed some months ago, and I don't think the mechanic who has it now really knows how/wants to work on it.  If interested, please contact me via this forum or email at crashette@gmail.com and we can work out the

To Look at Jupiter through a Telescope

Jupiter is the closest it is going to be to Earth for a REALLLLLLLLY long time. I can see 4 moons though my little 8x binoculars. But I'd like a better look.

Wanted: Strunk & White

I'm writing a book as a personal project and would like a copy of Strunk & White's The Elements of Style to work with. Any edition will do. Can someone please help me out?

Wanted: Alphasmart Word Processor

Has anyone got an old Alphasmart or similar word processor I could please have? I'd doing some hobby writing and don't want to haul my laptop around with me.

USB Sound Card to Test (I'll give it back when I'm done)

Can someone lend me a USB sound card? I want to test one on my laptop to see if I get better results with my dictation software. I don't want to spend $30 to $50 to find out that the problem is me.

Wanted: Sound Card

I need a halfway decent sound card. I've been trying to use Dragon Naturally speaking with not much success. I think a soundcard wtih proper hardware acceleration might help. Has anyone got an old PCI card I could have?

I'm happy to pick it up or equally happy to simply find it on my doorstep at 234 Santa Clara (Soundy Clause?)

Received: Cardboard Keyboard Box

Thank you Theresa for the cardboard keyboard box.
