    12 bolts, I agree. Hawaiian royalty imported large numbers of Japanese in the mid-late 1800s to work the cane fields and pineapple plantations. By 1920, 43% of Hawaii's population was Japanese! Now around 16 %. Of course, back then, they would probably not have intermarried; now the mix of Asian, Polynesian and Anglo backgrounds makes for a very diverse ethnic makeup. My mum had a unit in West Maui that my sister now has. We go every other year for 3 weeks...I know, don't we ever get bored with it...nah...cheers

    Books might subside, but I can't see full replacement. Like what a PITA Machinery's Handbook or Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers would be online...
    Not against change, when benefit is seen by the user. There aren't good substitutes for utility.

    Frank S; when I get leads on reference material, like to see what turns up. In grand internet fashion [and a cool PJs trick] I copy/ pasted your "Smolley's Tables......" to see price ranges. They start at less than $4 bucks. If you follow the google "Did You Mean" of correct spelling with one 'L', pricing doubles. YMMV!

    PJs gave me a site called fatfingers that compiles oft-misspelled terms; where sellers don't get bids because of t-t-typos.
    http://www.fatfingers.co.uk/default.aspx A good element, that site is UK, so things like color vs colour get included.

    Internet selling has different levels of sophistication; Amazon & Ebay might top the list. Somewhere lower but easier with local results my favorite is craigslist. But the funniest and highest rate of misspells [or illiteracy] is OfferUp. Willing to bet their crowd is farking phones, while other sites attract users with real keyboards.

    2006 or so, I wanted a proportioning divider to help me scale items from photos at work. Brand new they run $180-200, used maybe $80~. I played with spelling and found mine for $11.
    Cha-ching.
