        Mostly the little parts are all still in there, but if they're missing I have to either make them myself (ballpoint pen springs, shoelaces, bicycle inner tubes, etc.) or scavenge from completely "dead" typewriters of that same model.

        That's some epic tinkering. I enjoy repairing things with parts. I accidentally broke a mouse, not knowing that it requires the light to actually function, i was trying to make it dark, then i fixed it back up, I fixed an electric shaver and usually things don't make a link well somewhere but I love making them work.

        Rexi, I am really impressed you do your own electric/electronic repairing. That's pretty neat! It's a perfect Aspie hobby--take something, make it new again.

        I like ragtime, too. I have two from Scott Joplin on my playlist [The Entertainer, Maple Leaf Rag]. Does "Gimme Dat Ding" (The Pipkins, 1970) count?

        Have you ever heard “Hut 33”? Radio 4 sitcom set in Bletchley during WWII (written by John Finnemore: Mrs K and myself are both fans of his work)

    For me, Edwardian technology is an an escape from the sensory problems of modern cyberpunk hellscapes. Catholicism is a nice break from the structure-less subjectivism of wealthy America. And Autism Forum is a nice break from Wrong Planet; I'm not going back there.
