I just got the book and I'm lovin' it. See I've been off drugs for two years now and am trying to get back to what I did before drugs. I used to love tearing stuff apart and making new things. Unfortunatlly there is no electronic stores here so I am needing to go elsewhere. So if anyone is willing to help me out with whatever you can pass on, it would be more than helpful.

Pm me w/ your address and I can send you a "grab bag" of stuff in a padded envelope so it will only cost you a stamp. :)

Raid people's trash or ask around for broken junk. There's lots of parts in there, sometimes even parts that are un-buyable. Ask around for consoles. Find a thrift store and go every week. Find a pawn shop, used videogame dealer or chinese bootlegger that sells SJ3s. And sometimes you have no choice but to order a part.

I have been hitting the pawn/ used video game stores but they don't even let people leave their "broken" systems for others to get a hold of. I live in a weird place. :?

Well it was gaming or drugs, and I like gaming more. :lol:

I am trying to get a few odds and ends to get me started. Stuff you can't get off ebay.

Also try craigslist.com

Craiglist.com is like ebay, in a way. Its a website where people can sell and buy items locally. Meaning you actually meet up with the person and buy the item off of them. Theres also a lot of free stuff that people list on craigslist. Ive gotten like a piano, a arcade cabinet and other stuff for free.

Hmph, maybe Canadian Craigslist. The local ones around here I've had nothing but people jerk me around.
