Haha you make me laugh. You're a regular MacGuyver! Reminds me of that
scene in Back to the Future where Doc Brown pulls out a burned out
transistor from his time machine and marvels that such a tiny piece of junk
could cause so many problems.

Anyway at this point even that wouldn't work because what I don't have is a
DB9 connector! Anyway I'm going to try one last time to find a local shop
but if you guys have any ideas on good shops that ship overseas please let
me know. Thank you.
