I love mysteries! And the wonderful part about my job is I get to solve mysteries everyday! I have often thought about dressing up as Sherlock Holmes for Halloween, with the deerstalker cap and Meershum pipe with assorted parts and microfiche hanging out of my pockets.

Also, we maintain microfiche files (this was a method of data storage before computers for you youngsters out there!) and alot of the older appliances that won't come up on your computer research sites we have this backup to go to. Not to say we'll have the parts on some of this older stuff but I am continuely suprised at what comes up sometimes. And not to mention all the old timers around here that have all kinds of miscellaneous stuff in their brains.
So if you come across something that has you stumped, give us here at W L May a call - we'll do our darndest to find an answer for you. Plus it may be something that you can add to your Superhero Book!
Have a great week!
