They'll no doubt call, as many of the items in the list I sent to them are hard to explain (they didn't box 4 of the SXes, so there are deep scratches on the cases, etc.), so I can discuss the repair/replacement of the KB with them at that time. Mainly I needed a good estimate to start the ball rolling, as you can't submit paperwork without some number. But, if someone has a graphics KB lying around that will fit a 40XX machine, please let me know. And, if I find that, if someone needs keycaps for a 40XX GFX KB, let me know, as I will evidently have a whole KB of them :-) > > Good luck! I've generally had good luck with moving companies in this area. Damage during a move is not an "if", but a "how much", given that we have so much stuff (too much, but that's a story I am sure we all can tell) Jim > > Anders Carlsson > > > Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list -- Jim Brain email@example.com www.jbrain.com Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-11-28 19:00:21
