Now about chess magazines. I have a lot of chess magazines that I would like to give away. They are from 1986 through 2005. There is only one issue missing. I also have some Billiards Digest magazines that are free for the asking.

Dear Sun Spots: Thank you for my recent request. However, there is an error. A WebTV is a set-top box device that allows access to the Internet and e-mail through your television. It is not a TV brand. I need the infrared (wireless) keyboard, but I would buy the whole set, keyboard and set-top box. These were manufactured by Philips Magnavox and Sony, among others. I can be reached at (207) 743-6424. – Trish in Norway.
