"...with 100% safety"? ... After much thought, I've determined that it CAN indeed be done. However, it will require a 1/2 inch socket wrench, a cup of brown sugar, a tennis racket, and a condom. Forgive me, I jest of course.

== If you mean FINANCIAL/DATA SAFETY, the answer is YES.
Make it a point to shop at sites you are familiar with and/or are repuatable and without any extensive negative "rap" sheet, so-to-speak. How do you know? The familiar part is clear. For those you are not familiar with can easily be addressed in the next point.

== If you mean BUDGET SAFETY, as in not paying waaaaaaay over the lowest prevailing price, the answer is YES AGAIN.
Employ the truly awesome power of web comparison shopping. Talk about letting your fingers do the walking. It's that and much, much more. There are several good comparison shopper's websites that take almost all of the guess-work out of the endeaver. You just tell it what your looking for, and it will in a few seconds present you with a very detailed list of vendors offering your desire. And those details routinely address reliabilty, reputability, and previous buyer's ratings as well. Again there are many to choose from, but I can whole-heartedly recommend a few I use very often:

1. http://www.mysimon.com/
2. http://froogle.google.com/
3. http://www.amazon.com/
4. http://www.tigerdirect.com

== The KEY CONSIDERATIONS are:

1. NEW VS USED/RECONDITIONED. You simply use the same judgement in the virtual shopping world you use in the real shopping world. And there's the univeral standard to live by: if you wouldn't do it in the real-world, don't do it in the virtual-world.

2. SALES TAX (OR NOT). It's more common than not that you'll say goodbye to paying sales tax.

3. SHIPPING AND HANDLING. This varies considerably.

4. APPLES-TO-APPLES. For items 2 and 3, it's simply a matter of summing up to determine the TOTAL price. Price + Tax + Shipping and Handling = TOTAL price. Don't make the mistake of comparing apples-to-oranges. Compare first based on the total price. Then factor in the other considerations (i.e., shipping time, warranty, reliability, etc.). As soon as you find a specific item that catches your fancy, and the website showing it to you is extemely detailed, providing you with everything you'd ever want to know, including "8 by 10 inch glossy colored foe'-toes" (if you've ever seen the movie "Alice's Restaurant" you're at least smiling right about now), then note it's precise nomenclature (i.e., description and especially product code). EXAMPLE: Maxtor STM901603OTA3E1-RK OneTouch 4 Mini 160GB External Hard Drive 2.5" USB 2.0. With that magical code (STM901603OTA3E1-RK) you can then plug it into one or more of the comparison shoppers (or even "Google" it) and be assured of precise "apples-to-apples" comparison.

5. DATA/FRAUD SECURITY. There are many tools that can be considered here (Versign, digital signature, etc.). However, simply make sure that the web page you're at when it comes time to actually type in any personal/financial data (name, address, credit card number, etc.) contains the universal icon ... that being a gold colored padlock (usually at the bottom status bar of your web browser). This indicates the website is using industry standard security protocols to ensure your data is properly encrypted and can't get into the eyes of anyone intercepting.

== FOR COMPUTER/ELECTRONICS RELATED PRODUCTS, I highly recommend http://www.tigerdirect.com. It's very informative and detailed in it's product descriptions (typicallly with several different aspect photos). I've made countless purchases over many years now with darn near 100% satisfaction. And I challenge you to see if you can find a better offer elsewhere for nearly everything they carry. I've only rarely been able to do so.

== AGAIN, FOR EMPHSIS: You simply use the same judgement in the virtual-world you use in the real-world. The univeral, computer-using, gold standard to live by: if you wouldn't do it in the real-world, don't do it in the virtual-world.

== IN CONCLUSION, with just a little bit of common-sense, and these few tips, you need not unduly worry about buying online. Ask any of your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors, and I'll be willing to bet they'll tell you the very same thing. Now get out there and do some comparison shopping.

I want to raise the handle bars on my Mongoose XR75 mountain bike, any ideas


Be careful, the stem must be inserted at least 3" or to the safety line, or it will snap off. You have to have a metric allen wrench. Like I say, and I cannot stress it more, do not raise beyond the safety line on stem, buy a longer stem, if you want it higher than that. If, the bike is too small, buy a bike that fits you from a shop who specializes in sizing.

We are trying to buy a new adapter for a Casio CA - 100 Keyboard and we live in Watford Hertfordshire. Can you tell us of a supplier we can contact please


http://www.musical-instrumentsuk.co.uk/ The adapter you need is the AD-5EL and is listed at this store. I found this info at this website:http://www.twenga.co.uk/dir-Leisure-Hobbies,String-instruments,Keyboard-power-supply-adaptor-45 I am in Canada so I hope the store I mentioned can help you. If they aren't in your area a shop that sells Casio products should be able to get you that model adapter. I hope this helps you.

You can most definitely replace the whole keyboard.

<a href="http://www.laptoprepairco.com/itemdetails/itemdetails.asp?ref=1345&category=keyboards"> http://www.laptoprepairco.com/itemdetails/itemdetails.asp?ref=1345&category=keyboards</a>

If you don't want to spend upwards of $100 dollars just for that keyboard, though, I would suggest going on ebay and checking out the selection of keyboards and other things they have. It is completely possible to buy a 99 cent keyboard and replace the key with that. Then, you will also have backups for any future mishaps.

P.S. DON'T FORGET TO VOTE
