Does anyone have any comparative data on daily or monthly posting on SI back in that heyday? I lurked here a very long time before signing up but never really paid attention. It did seem to be busier back then.

The last 24 hours list of hot threads seems to have about 1000 posts. I don't know how that compares to 10 or 20 years ago. SI doesn't seem to publish any aggregate data on the site.

Does anyone here have a Microcassette Recorder they don't need? You Know the old fashion tiny ones that plays mini tapes. I have two that don't work. I have old tapes that could have my fathers voice on them. I don't trust eBay, because that's were one of these that don't work was bought. They play tapes for a few seconds, but the electronics are messed up in the recorder and starts making a horrible sound.

If you hit play with no tape, it makes a loud distorted sound like when the tape was in. I thought it was bad tapes, but its the recorder.

I don't trust eBay.

There is one on Kijiji, but they want 80 bucks and it looks like the same model I have that doesn't work. I don't want to spend a pile of money for something thats only going to be used a few hours.

Thats US dollars, convert that to Canadian. The shipping to Canada, & duty, taxes. I can't see spending that money on something that will be used a few hours and then never again.

Do you have a local library that might have one to use, or know any lawyers that might have one around.

See if you can find a store that can convert old analog A/V sources, like your tapes, to a digital format. A few years ago I found a shop that copied my mother's old (very old) 8mm home movie films to DVDs. Didn't cost a whole lot..

Also, if you do buy a player, you can always resell it after you're done with it..

I had Hi8 tapes digitized for 20 bucks for first and 10 each afterwards, just 3 of them. They came to my house pick up and delivery.
