That was a gentlemanly act you did, to apologize because you had not noticed the date of that post you complained about and reported. You made an unintentional error. You were a man about it and owned up to it. That's all I'll remember. -db

Dennis:
That's nice you praise Don for the way we settled our little discussion. I concur it was a way which suits two adults. As mentioned elsewhere, I (still) believe in the power of good examples ...

(Just in case the above nudge isn't sufficient: please remember who supplied the model for that post far above. It's still accessible for primary school kids while far less choleric posts were edited quickly. I'd appreciate if you'd care of equity eventually.)

RE: the book
Is this book available yet? And if so where might I obtain a copy? I need the step-by-step instructions. Trying to figure out "the path" to wire around the broken ribbon [do I remove the ribbon entirely?] and things of that nature are very difficult for a rookie like myself. If it were as simple as a three-pronged approach I could do it but the "three-pronged" ribbon splits into about different 10 paths. Do I slice the ribbon to where it meets the motherboard and make my three soldering points there?
As an afterthought my grandmother's brother, my uncle Marvin, graduated from Michigan State University in 1941 with a degree in electrical engineering. He worked on things of a nuclear nature, specifically all the nuclear ordinance in submarines from 1956 through the Cold War. I found out last year that he did meet and work with one person that was on the Manhattan Project. He retired from General Electric in their Neutron Devices Dept. He is 94 years old this year. I am going to see him soon at our yearly family reunion. I wonder if he has any early calculators...?
