You can try it if you like, but you'd far better notter!

Seriously, in most (afaik) homes/schools/offices in the US, it is
possible to find 230V between the live terminals of two suitably chosen
sockets. But this is not recommended. In particular, you cannot
connect the output voltages of two randomly chosen sockets in series
and expect the wiring to survive...

I'd recommend a 110/220V transformer. They do exist and they are not
very difficult to find. It may also be possible to modify the PSU.
Don't give up that soon!

I may have spare copies of some pocket reference guides. There is one
for the OS (about 1/2 inch thick) and one for the assembler at least. I
shall have a look - eventually!
