Hi and Welcome, Sleipner!!
Glad to hear you are enjoying the boards. You might also like ebay.com Answer Center, every problem or situation imaginable is addressed. It is sometimes hilarious and ALWAYS informative. Nice folks on those boards, & these as well.
I've been an ebay member for a long time too, and out of thousands of transactions, there have been only a couple bad ones...I guess I've been really lucky!
Glad you're having an enjoyable experience here and it's been nice to meet you! (BTW, my grandparents came from Norway!)
