Re: [Computerbank] CASE was: Canberra

Great to get your support Jacqueline!

All the way across Oz. Tell me, have you heard of Connie Shaw in Mandurah
(I think it's Mandurah? Somewhere near Perth that starts with an M.) she
fixes up computers for the disabled in something called the Mandurah
Mouseketeers or something, been doing it for yonks.

I've saved my response to you on this until I knew Darrell from CASE was on
here to see what you said. He's just joined us. :)

(( Goodonyer Darrell! ))

Thanks Jacqueline, Bruce
