Dear Buyers --
I apologize to those of you who have been contemplating buying one of my items and to those who have added one of my items to their Watch List. I didn't plan on taking a vacation so soon after the one I took in July and August. That vacation was for the purpose of sending my laptop back to Samsung for repair after my roommate tripped on the Ethernet cord and damaged the socket it plugs into. I just got it back from Samsung. It was August 8th when I turned the vacation settings off. In just three weeks, I managed to contract a nasty Trojan virus and have to send the laptop back to Samsung for reimaging. My laptop is the only device I own that has Internet capabilities, so I have no choice but to put my store back on vacation in the interim.
Again, I apologize to my customers for any inconvenience I may have caused them. My hope is that my laptop [reimaged!] is returned to me expeditiously, so I can be back in business before you've had a chance to miss me.
