Plastic is good for that, if it's surrounded by [insert odd smell here] for
long enough... Quite often, there may be dust internally that can hold the
odors as well; a good internal cleaning will go a long way to making the
units less "nasally unfriendly."

I have a 1040STf as well, and I'm supposed to have a Falcon _someday_.
Anyone have a power supply for a Falcon? I might need one... And a Mega
he's supposed to have for me... and I have a "mostly working" STacy which
needs repair (resolder several junctions, but my wife lost the screw baggie
I had for it, so now I can't put it back together... :-/ )
I *think* the BASIC was included on floppies shipped with the thing, but
I've never had 'em... believe it or not, there's a version of Perl that
will run on the thing (version 4.0.36 IIRC) but it wasn't what one would
Ah well... So geht's.
