Ebay not having any listings?  I could have sworn I just saw one today...

*search search*

Wow, I never thought I'd ever see the day were their wasn't one of those 
cards up for sale.

Set up a favourite search or something, I'd be surprised if one or two 
didn't show up soon.

Heh.  Sounds familiar.  My wife never understood why I built one, much

This was some time ago.  Now, she grumps at me if I do any work or 
attempt improvements because it might break it.

Funny how perceptions can change.  :-)
