The advice I received is that 2 xAA would replace the battery, but can
you fit 2xAA internally into these boxen?

I have one of the P100 model, so these comments may apply only to that.
Does need parity ram, either Digital or Other, but all simms must be the
same. You cannot mix digital and other simms.

Does anyone have access to sheet metal bending equipment?
I was considering examining the idea of making my own, but it is only
worthwhile if it is my labour. Effectively the stand is a large
bookstand with three little hooks on it.

Is there an archive of the Multia-list?
If so, people might want to search it to see people's experiences with
the Multia's.
