I'm looking for a dead MP 2x00 (or, better yet, an MP 2x00 shell or shells) so that I can conduct grisly experiments on MessagePad case plastics angst-free.  Meaning: I need a non-functioning cadaver (or cadavers) to mess up so that the world isn't short a working Newton by the time I get done fooling with it.  If you have a dead MP 2x00 festering away in a desk drawer somewhere, this could be your opportunity to unload it on some unsuspecting sap.

Likewise, if you have an old MP 2x00 painting/modding project that you never quite got around to finishing, I would be happy to take it off your hands.  

Please let me know your asking price and the cost of shipping (cheap and slow shipping is fine for this).  Shipping would be to zip 95132 (CA, SF Bay Area/San Jose).  Despite repeated pleadings, my mailman continues to handle my mail as though it's some sort of personal affront, so I need this well packed and shipped in a cardboard box, please.  In fact,the Small Flat Rate Priority Mail box (the one about the size of an old VHS cassette) would be perfect.  Of course, if you want to ship the case to me Parcel Post (or FedEx Ground) that's fine, too, just so long as it's shipped in a cardboard box.

I can pay via PayPal or (im)personal check, seeing as how PayPal is anathema to some folks.  If you take Paypal, please be sure to tell me if you have the ability to accept both balance transfer and credit card-funded payments, or only the former.  If you prefer a check, I understand that the check will need to clear before the MessagePad is shipped and am happy to allow more time for that.  However, in the interests of getting this project underway sooner rather than later, it's only fair to mention that folks who accept PayPal will likely take precedence over those who don't.

Thank you for reading.
