Reminds me of buying things locally.
You ask for direction, address, and I like to ask for a satellite image too, google street view URL, the works.
Usually the address is something like:
House down long lane with no name..
Left of where the was a big building 100+ years ago that isn't there anymore..
And an emailed picture of the house..
No, I want a map of where the house is !
At least with a picture, I can spend a few hours wandering around with google street view to find a match..
Of course, this only works for places google has been..
Satellite maps are not so good, as folk aren't very good at actually putting an arrow where their house is, instead its 3 miles away !
Close, but after knocking on several doors, falling in the odd ditch in the process.. eventually someone tells me where the place is.
Nanos9607276dAfter them re-listing the item and again me making an offer, and sending another question, and nothing happened, I decided to go for a new one at 50% more cost :-(
At least the new ones was on sale at the moment half price.
Of course, I might get one that doesn't work and have to go through all the hassle of a warranty issue.
Hopefully it is easier to get to work than my new mouse..
