The HP 5370C scanner that is used to bring you Ookpik's Negatvity has died! Does anyone have one they wish to sell? Yes,
I know you can buy them on E-Bay and that is probably what I will do but thought I would ask here first. For those into electronic repair, does anyone have a schematic for the HP 5370C scanner? I know what is wrong and can fix it myself but I do not know the value of the surface mount capacitor that needs to be replaced.

Where Is This?

Does anyone recognize the bridge in the photo? The highway sign reads Louisiana U.S. 90. The photo appears to be from the 1940's.

Thanks to several people who identified the bridge in the photo as the Huey P. Long Bridge located in Jefferson Parrish, Louisiana. The bridge, which opened in 1935, spans the Mississippi River. If you wish to learn more about the history of the Huey P. Long Bridge, please click here.

Honey, I Shrunk The House!

Does anyone know where this small house was located? The house appears to be very well built, extremely detailed and even has two small outdoor chairs! I don't know whose house this was but I'm sure they were very happy with it and remember it fondly. The photo is from the 1940's.
