You don't happen to have another model made between 1978 and 1982 on hand do 'ya? 'Cause I'd be happy to take that off your hands. :D

Don't do it, dude. Marriage means the following:

Less time to play on the computer
Less money to spend on yourself
Less hanky panky

If those three things are what you love in life (like me), getting married is the worst thing you can do.

US dollars... but an NV30 is considered universal currency.

Mind if I kick the tires and take her out for a test drive?

Sure... I hope you have better luck getting her started than I did. Just refuses to start for me most of the time... sometimes Ill spend a couple of thousand fixing her up, and she will run for a week or so, but then its back to the same old routine.

lol. I think you just need to RMA her. I guess you could try flashing her with a newer firmware version before you go for the RMA, but make sure you don't turn her off or that the power goes out during the flash.

Hmmmm, an interesting concept:) Deploy, reflash firmware and redeploy. Same model, but new attitude=more fun and no more problems.

A reprograming usually works, be careful not to overload the transporter pattern buffer or you could loose it all together;)

Hmmm.... Sounds like someone didn't read the System Requirements before investing in that last peice of hardware....

I'm afraid to say it, but looks to be a bit of user error....

I must have a test model...shes a 1980 model, lets me play games...even lets me buys things for the puter. as long as she is allowed to sew!!!

hanky panky is still in experimental phase though....she a bit temremental at times though.......sometimes theres a lot of hanky panky...sometimes none for months

None for months? Oh man. I expect nothing less than every night from mine. And sometimes a lot more than just once (if her and I have the energy). Some of you guys definitely have defective models.
