Hi all,

[it must be that time of the year.]

Part 1 of ??

The first person to commit (via return e-mail) to furnishing me with a
not-yet-drunk case of Coopers Sparkling Ale in exchange for these
things, will get these things!

Strong preference for offloading this stuff to one person. If no one
wants to take the lot or buy the beer, I will re-post.

Everything below is in working order to the best of my knowledge. If
any major item turns out to be broken, I will give you back beer on a
pro-rata basis based on a secret algorithm I developed just then.
