Just being helpful... Fortunately, your URL as pasted wrapped well, but if it doesn't wrap well (forcing the page to require a bunch of scrolling)...

Another hint: Amazon URLs can be shortened to amazon.com/dp/<ASIN> where <ASIN> is Amazon's part number (don't type the angle brackets). It's the first long number in the long URL.

Likewise, Walmart's can be shortened to walmart.com/ip/<part#>

Many other sites also allow shortening like this, but it takes some experimenting to get it right.

It takes no experimenting at all to follow the instructions for embedding urls in a text link that are posted in a couple of places in these forums.

Old guys (like myself) have a hard time with anything new. Matter of fact, I've had an Iphone since they came out and still haven't done anything more than make phone calls with it. But I do have a universal wall wart on hand. It came from Radio Shack.

What is a phone "call", Uncle Daddy?  /snark

My ATT corporate plan had 900 minutes of voice time and unlimited data... now I have the minimum voice plan and 2 gb of data as I don't watch UTube, hulu or Netflox (in fact I have no pay video services...) on my phone.  Frankly I don't understand the attraction of watching content created for a 50 ft screen on a 5 inch screen...

So, this old Italian fellow is bedridden, and not doing so good.
The "Good Son" says to him "Pop, I wanna get you something nice. What U want"
"Mario, I want a hallo stat you"
"Sure Pop, I bring you one right away."
Mario goes to the Garden Supply place, and orders 4 Hollow Statues, and directs them to be placed outside the old man's window.
A couple of days go by, and Mario visits the old man.
"So Pop, How do you like the Statues? They're all hollow, just like you asked."
"No, no Mario, you got it wrong. I want the thing that goes ring ring ring, and you answer Hallo, stat You?"

What's the difference between watching on a 50 foot screen that's 50 feet from your nose, and a 5 inch screen that's 5 inches from your nose?

What I don't get is the willingness to sacrifice sound quality. Listening to action flicks or the performing arts with a 2 mm speaker is... anticlimactic.

Matching ANYTHING 5" from your nose is destroying your vision.
Just sayin........

Radio Shack used to sell those AC adapters.  Have a couple of them.  One in my guitar gig bag and the other in the sound gig bag along with several strong USB supplies.  There's always something.
