    It's nice to be appreciated with $'s

    I ordered a bunch of these for my shop. Http://thebookseat.ca. Two of them were mislabeled: wrong barcode. I posted a pic of this in an earlier msg here. After informing the company of this quality control matter, and providing them with more info (an obscure VNET number on one of the labels) they rewarded me with reduction of the equivalent of 3 units out of the original 50.

    " Hi August,

    Thank you so much for all your help.
    I have attached a photo of the label and where the VNET number is located. If you could please let me know the number on the label I would appreciate it.

    I have amended your invoice so 3 Book Seats at no charge now"

    Nice to know that good people do exist.

    The capital 'H' at the front makes it a non working link in GoldED. :-(

    Bye, Wilfred.

    INTERESTING. A new kind of horror. That means when I thumb-type on my phone, I have to be sure that the link is inside a sentence, otherwise my smart blackberry thinks it is the start of a new sentence and assumes capitalization is required.

    BTW.. this echo is supposed to be now turned off from the TgBBS system. The sysop has been informed (by me, not by the moderator) ..but I assume Stas missed this one.

    Most future postings in this echo by me will be from TgBBS. Therefore, I will expect this echo will dry up very fast - and back to a dead echo as it was for years devoid of on-topic content. Hello tests and auto-post rules don't really count. ;)

    Chow.

    I was poised with plenty of material to stir up convo.

    Now, there is no point. It's not as fun. The phone made it easy to snap a picture and add a relevant story.

    But I digress, and egress on this side. :/

    What was the story with this "Telegram" stuff anyway? I thought that was supposed to be a "link" into<>from FidoNet.

    Hi Marc.. Coming at ya from RBB BBS. My usual system (trmb.ca) is not
    available from my shop. The echo was set up to be available for Telegram users. But after few short weeks, the moderator pulled out when some "dust" was kicked up about this. :( The link up is still ready to be activated at any time! :) Maybe you can help. :)

    Ciao!
