I have a challenge for you all.

I need a 1972 Sanyo ICC 808D Calculator. I need you to help me find it.

Obviously I'm willing to pay for it, and I'm will to pay what is needed. I just got outbid in an ebay auction for one at the last minute, and I'm not going to have that happen again. (thanks grahamux for the tip on that too... ).

Whoever manages to find me one (or leads me to being able to get one) will get a prize. I don't know what it'll be, but it'll be a token of thanks of some tangible sort.

Why do I need it? It's for a Halloween costume, next years costume to be exact... I plan ahead.

Anyhow, tell your friends, use you contacts. I need one of these.

Thanks guys.

You're going all-out for that Ghostbuster's costume, aren't you?

Oh you have no idea...

Let me put it this way: I have wanted a Ghostbusters costume since I was 7 years old.

I am not about to do it lightly. The conversation with Miriam went something like this:

M: We could do a Ghostbusters costume!
G: Oh... oh.. don't say that.
M: It would be awesome!
G: Yes... yes it would. You have no idea what your starting here tho..
M: Lets do it!
G: Okay... right. Let's do this. *grim look of determination*

Around that moment the sun went red and rivers boiled, cat's and dogs started living together... all in all... there were signs of the coming doom...

Heeeeeee

I honestly figure that one of the best things to do would probably be to prod Jeri into showing signs of life and then hitting her up for a reproduction of the circuitry... (Step 1 has already been initiated.)

I really, really need to have a Halloween party next year, to make up for my total lameness this year...

Would work.

Of course I'd a reference first.. I have some photos that might help with that.

Toughest part would be the 8 nixie tubes...

I'll do whatever I can, hon. If I did somehow find you one, I wouldn't need any prize. You've already been far too kind to me. I posted to Craigslist and such.
