Re: How do people secure their homes while traveling (especially in winter)?

Tell me about it...I spent half a day looking for a capacitor to replace a bad one on a board in one of gabes toys. Two radio shacks and I was then sent to a tv repairman who had "a lot of parts". No dice there either.

Made me wish for the days of living up the street from You Blew It Electronics on rte 128 in MA...

The good news is that when I called to see if I could buy a new board or module, Leap Frog replaced the whole thing for free, even though it was out of warranty.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
