Moderation in all things, lad. Sorta like hollering Fire in a crowded theater? An occasional titter, so to speak , is good for the morale.

I am also a long time and big fan of amazon.com; wherever possible i order from them.FWIW, I ordered from ROADRUNNERsports via Amazon, the item price was less than other googled sources, it weighed 32 oz., and shipping to Hawaii was via Priority Mail and free. I think all items from them ship free. Perhaps this instance will help other sports fans. I have no ties to Amazon or ROADRUNNERsports.
Their shipping (especially prime) is extremely fast, and their return policy is excellent.
I do think josh is going too far in talking about the savings of free shipping when ordering heavy items; when you order something from an online-only store, and they are willing to give you free shipping on a very heavy item, you can bet that heavy items are already priced to include most of the shipping costs. The only sensible way to compare the savings when using amazon prime (which is like $79 a year) is to look at how much you would pay if you ordered through amazon, but without Prime.
Amazon Prime is, however, great for impatient people since you do get free upgrades to 2 day delivery and cheaper overnight delivery].-mouser (March 03, 2010, 02:16 PM)
All I am saying is, that if he is using Vista there is no use for any third party program. Yes, there are PLENTY of faster and more advanced applications, but he only asked for this one option, date of installation, and nothing more!Is Vista the key word here?

Yes, I use my printer every day and still print as much as I did in years past. I usually prefer being able to read instructions, user manuals, etc. in print while I'm trying to deal with what it's telling me to do on the computer. I also like being able to take the printout and read it anywhere--it's a lot easier to carry a few sheets of paper than to lug a laptop (and most of the time I'm using my desktop, which I can't lug at all).Me too. I have been through so many system/hardware/backup failures over the past that I keep more paper. We are in an area of high humidity (92% now), bad electrics and lotsa bugs that love to live in the case.-cyberdiva (August 26, 2009, 09:13 PM)
