I'd have to see it to believe it Mike. I had this thing on a tv cart,
an el-cheepo chipboard thing with castors. I had to put a new 1/4"
plywood back on it early on after it wore the nail holes out in the
original piece of 1/8" solid cardboard & it all fell apart. I put the
plywood on with drywall screws & they seemed to do the trick. That and
a yearly tightening of all those big bugle head allen screws that tried
to hold it together. Its still sitting on it but I haven't checked to
see if the unheated, and well ventilated from the bottom shed its in
now is causeing it any further damage. When I can get the shed
excavated back to it again that is... I'd drag it back in and hook it
back up to the coco in the basement, but I'm running out of basement
too, darn it.
People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules. I do use spamassassin too. :-)
