Silly me. (I'm one of those people who can program a computer but can't find the "on" button.) I ordered this...ummm..."device (http://www.shipbrook.com/jeff/interocitor/introctr.jpg)" from an outfit called "Electronic Service Unit 16". It guaranteed that I'd be able to get clear views of distant nebula despite city lights. Well, I followed all the diagrams and built the thing. I can't figure out how to turn it on. Anybody know? (Happy April by the way.)

Maybe it's solar powered.

I love the two yellow tap handles: one dispenses porter and the other dispenses stout... The guy on the screen is the friendly automated bartender; you tell him your woes and he says, "tsk, tsk," until you finally pass out. The rest of the machine carts you safely home and tucks you into bed.

There should have been a disc that came with it. Put it into the dial on the right side, then turn the control 18 degrees to the left.

And say "hi" to Braak and Exeter for me. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Cute aren't they? Actually they contained something called a "catherimine tube with an endiom complex of plus four." I don't know what that is, but after I tried it, I could lift a car! You're right about the bar tender. His name's "Exeter" and he keeps going on about me attending some science convention he's having. (Free airplane ride there!) My assistant says: "Chip - Don't go! Don't go!" /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

P.S.

The beer dispenser is a nice touch, but that triangle screen is NO FUN when watching soccer matches or basketball games. They're going to have to fix that!

Hey, say hi to Exeter for me.

They melted my machine when they found out I was using it to get free cable.

Hey, Exeter's an OK guy. But that Braak is a brat! He blew up my truck!

Do I need a 115 or 220 outlet to plug my interoceter into? Its killing my car's battery to run it from the cigarette lighter.
