Goodwill keycaps? :)

Our cats broke two caps of our iBook's (G3 700) keyboard. Even though the keys work without the caps, it's a pain to use. I called through several finnish service shops, but non of them offer individual keycap replacements. Naturally they only wan't to sell us a brand new keyboard, but it does not seem worth the price. From the US I found pbparts.com that sell individual keycaps, but they don't seem to ship outside the US.

There used to be a sticky message with someone offering to send left over keycaps of a dual USB keyboard. The sticky has been gone for a while now, but I was wondering if anyone with a spare keyboard would be willing to send me a few keycaps (W and S) in a letter? In exchange I could send you a postcard from Helsinki or something.

And yes, I'm desperate

I have an extra US English iBook 500 keyboard- is it the same? If so, I can send you the keys that you need if you don't mind paying for the shipping. (If it's cheap then don't worry about it, but I have no idea what it costs to ship overseas- I live in the US.)

We need less Democrats and Republicans, and more people that think for themselves.
