laundry & other housekeeping help

Catherine is the only one of us without a laptop computer. She requested our help in getting computerized, and we in turn ask anyone with a written off laptop to give it to Catherine, possibly in exchange for her services. It can be a totally written off machine, worth very little, as long as it supports Windows 95/98. Computer types check out your closets! Thank you in advance. - Pasha

PS. I periodically receive questions about Laundromat facilities in Moscow. As far as I know there is but one such place on Vavilova Street. Detailed information will be added here shortly..

Here are some links to pages that describe the laundry situation in Moscow....
