Dave,
Thanks for the heads-up!

I purchased one o' those a few weeks ago (it ain't caught fire yet;-)).. Presumably, the dealer from whom I purchased it will be in touch in due course (??)..

In any case,I'll give GME a bell in the mornin' & find out
"What's the go?"..................

Regards, Ed C
