If you got a few extra dollars you can take it to an alteration shop. Shouldn't cost too much and you can pick what type of zippers you want (i.e. metal or plastic) other wise the only thing I can think of is go to the wal-mart craft section or a craft store and get the supplies to sew on new zippers. The ppl in the craft section/store can tell you what you need and how to do it.

rip out the old zipper, find a new one (like cut one off a trashed backpack or something that is about the same size) and with the new zipper zipped together, sew it onto both sides and try to keep it sturdy (ie, tight stitches). cut it down to size and you should have a pretty good zipper, kinda hard to mess up.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $5.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $5.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $5.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $5.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
