Hello All:

I'm getting ready to mail these out, and at the same time I am doing an address verification. There is a stamped and pre-addressed postcard in each package that you must return to stay on the list. Please print your name in the box on the card and drop it in a mail box. Don't sign the card, as I might have difficulty reading the signature. The purpose of this address verification is to make it easy to opt out of the mailing. This is to avoid one possible scenario where a widow is getting this package addressed to her husband for years after he passed away.

Some have asked how this CED-branded holiday item came about and how people get on the mailing list. This started in 2003 when a light-up pen was mailed to everyone who had ever purchased the RCA VideoDisc Collector's Guide CD-ROM. Addresses were added to the list as orders came in, and were removed if a holiday package was returned as being undeliverable. The CD-ROM is no longer being sold, but I still add U.S. collectors to the list when they request the CD-ROM by SASE. Instructions for that are in the FAQ section of the Products Page:

Happy Holidays,

Tom Howe

I'm typing in the dark with it, not sure what to do with part of it...get yours in the mail and see what it is.

Thank you Tom Smile

Thanks, Tom. This is really a interesting gift. Fun item. One of my USB lights had a poorly made metal head and would not fit into the crank outlet but the other light was fine. Thanks for everything this site provides.

If you're careful you can fix that head, if it's the collar. The white block inside that orients it, I don't know.

If you stick then in the front USB ports on your computer they make a night light bright enough to work in the dark! They'll get slightly warm, not harmful, if your ports are stacked. I like to use them to leave the lights off and not disturb my cat who sleeps nearby.

By the way, the crank charger is for charging your phone or other device that can charge via a USB port, not the lights.

Don't forget that USB 1 and 2 only insert one way and a cable with a regular male end and mini male on the other end is needed to charge your phone.

He's a true gem of Portland! I sure miss Tom Peterson's and Gloria's too though, and KPTV...only thing I miss about having cable TV.

And postcard SENT!

THANK YOU so much Tom for the nice Christmas Gift again this year.
Please keep up the Great website, it's the best CED Info on the web.

I will send you the postcard back as instructed.
