So, I just figured I'd throw it out there. My husband builds/fixes computers. He specializes in making things economical, reusing parts, and finding the legally free software equivalent. He doesn't believe in paying for brand names, etc. He doesn't charge for finding parts or small amounts of consulting, just asks you to pay him for the install/additional work. Anyway, if your interested, his e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
After burning through the drip stuff and the french press stuff, Paul has the last, ever, coffee maker. Better living through buying less crap.
