Barter II

So far no roofers have contacted me. I'm not that surprised to be honest. As was pointed out when I made my original barter post, the overlap between people who live on Wirral, people who are roofers, people who need driving lessons, and people who visit this blog is small.

I have a problem with my computer. It keeps on switching itself off without warning. More so on warm days like today. I have the case open, and a fan heater blowing (unheated) air straight at the CPU, and it still wants to overheat from time to time. According to BIOS, the cpu fan speed is 0, but I can see it going around.

So if there's a computer fixer living nearby that wants to sort it out in exchange for work of an equivalent value (more or less) please let me know.

driving lessons in Wallasey?

Don't take this the wrong way. A Marxist utopia is all good and well but we live in a market economy and money is the usual means of exchange for payment for goods and services. In short, I think you are barking up the wrong tree. Woof, woof.

That's rather like saying "We have cars, so you'd be mad to suggest anyone ever walks anywhere."

I'm not pursuing this particularly hard, and I have little expectation that my needs will dovetail neatly with those of someone looking for lessons, or that we will happen upon each other if they do, but within those limitations, it's certainly a viable way of proceeding.
