Thanks for the heads-up ... I wouldn't have discovered the
problem on my own until much, much later.

This is about as embarrassing as possibly could be. I gave
one as a gift to a little kid, then read Marc's note and
realized I'd been swindled.

Ever try to un-give a present? Not a good situation.

There *are* products in this category that actually work;
this just isn't one of them.

Sorry for any confusion I caused.
