That reminds me, does anybody have a way to tune in old Gomer Pyle TV shows on their TV? I know new shows have basically taken over, but I only have these old TV Guides and I can't afford to get new ones. Also, are there any game cartridges available for Pong? ObHack: I'm getting some work done on my house. I came home last week to find that the outlets and lights didn't work, but I had power at my furnace. A little checking showed that each outlet had two hot wires, and no neutral, so I decided to leave those alone until the contractor came back, but I rigged an extension cord to let me use my refrigerator, TV, and alarm clock overnight. Still don't know what the contractor could have done to give me two hot wires, though... -- Tom Phoenix http://www.teleport.com/~rootbeer/ firstname.lastname@example.org PGP Skribu al mi per Esperanto!
