How much does a Cathode Ray Tube TV circuit board cost?

30 UAH (about $3.75) at L’viv Radio Rynok!

It’s a technology bazaar. I feel safer, of course, surrounded by the ethic of a shopping mall — symmetry of information, guarantee, warranty — but it’s nevertheless exciting to see so many people making a living in such hyper specialized ways.

It’s open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.

My dear friend and co-conspirator who accompanied me also builds tesla coils for fun. Did you know that if you hold one of those new “green” light bulbs next to a tesla coil, it’ll light up?

    Some of the “green” light bulbs contain mercury.

    In Kyiv, there is a building with tons of mercury. The sovoks were really, really great at ignoring precautions with hazardous materials. Oil fields, nuclear power plants (Chernobyl), coal mines – didn’t matter.

    That’s still part of the sovok hangover under which Zookraine labors today.

    I am glad to see this high-tech flea market.

    I am wondering how long before government thugs/mafia/raiders from the Bolshevik Regionnaires come in to try to take their “cut.”
