Anyone know where I could pick up a pair of Kicker HP201 headphones in white? Maybe even on the island since I'm there for a while and won't be in Vancouver until April.

Trying to find this:

DampRid FG50T Hi-Capacity Moisture Absorber, 4-Pound Tub


I had a leak in my car and pulled the carpets to dry up and used a fan to take away as much moister as I can. Now I just want to keep the humidity to a dry level to control any other moisture the fan couldn't get rid of.

Where can I buy H8 size 35W fog light bulbs locally?

I'm in Cloverdale/Langley but I wouldn't mind driving out to Couquitlam/Burnaby/New West. I may drive to Richmond/Vancouver if the price is decent.

Belgian Waffles. I bought some at Costco 2 weeks ago, but went back yesterday and they stopped carrying them. Anyone know where else? Thanks.

^Which location?

I wish all locations would carry the same stuff, but apparently, it all boils down to floor space. I find the Brighton location has the least, but carry some strange stuff you don't see in other locations.

Anyway, I go to the Brighton location as it's on the way home. I'll check to see if they have them. I have to pick up some stuff anyway.

Do Serial to USB converters work with GT1? That would be a better bet.

I don't know what GT1 is, but as mentioned above, there are USB to Serial converters available and I would be surprised if it didn't work.

I haven't had it not work for any RS232 device I've tried.

There are many available... here's one of the cheaper ones.
