Well, thank goodness! About you, not the M246 file problems.

I am a B&W kind of guy, though as a retiree I?m not sure I could have 
justified the un-budgeted expense. Serendipitously, my son just informed me 
that the last print edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, which I 
impulsively bought a set of a couple of years ago, now sells on the 
secondary market, like Amazon and eBay, to collectors for 5-6 times what it 
cost new?just about the price of the M246! If I could sell mine for that, it 
would be an un-budgeted windfall There?s a nice symmetry there?
