    I wish we could connect people like you, who can figure out solutions, with people like me, who can't, but I have an intense curiosity and ability to learn by watching and then DOING, but lack confidence without encouragement.I save the parts from electronics, like my GE Profile which spun so fast it vibrated screws loose, yet noone will fix it. Now I have circuit boards and empty shells...
