Gee, it's good to know I'm "no one" along with all the other player
technicians around. (Granted, we aren't that common, but we do exist!)

Now _that_ part, at least the second part, is likely true, and is even
true of standard 88-note players. The "too hard to maintain" part is,
at least for me, baloney (even with mustard)! There are, though, still
some folks who value their player piano, and want it working properly.
Play 'em if ya got 'em -- and fix 'em, too! <smile>
