b) your suggestion of getting BN to determine the problem is noted, but

that is 500mi away... (I live some 150mi to the nearest BN).

c) although a BN-store "support" person would be 'responsible' to fix
the problem... I do not automatically grant them some better ability.


I spend more money at Craftsman/Harbor Freight than I do for
Walmart.com/books or BN or AZM or HalfPriceBooks (hpb.com)...
I tell folks that I am building bookshelves to store my books on
how to use a variety of power-tools that I need to learn how to
build the shelves for the books and the tools/bits/blades...


back in the days of Dial-Up modems and DOS, there was a popular
"modem program" called CrossTalk that let your PC be a terminal into
the BBS or host-PC. CrossTalk was the $$-licensed-program and a Freeware clone
was called Mirror-II, the splash-screen contained a random phrase, one
of which was: "Beware of the Programmer that carries a Screwdriver"
I rescue him and his little deaf sister when they were about five weeks old. He grew to be 18 pounds, which is quite something when I wake up in the morning with him laying on my chest, nose to nose, purring so loud he wakes me up. Wife got too close to me in bed one night and got bit. He was banned from the bedroom after that. He lived to be 14 years old.

I figure I know more than most B&N salespeople also, but I assumed they would just give you a new one. I've got a few B&N stores around here, but don't go to any of them. Got a Harbor Freight not too far away and a HF gift card for Christmas.

I can't remember the name of the program I used to connect to my friend's BBS. I think it was just plain old XModem. I like your quote! I'm a computer programming teacher now and I like to write funny sayings on the board. I'll be using that one!
