Hahahahaha.. I ordered "Teach yourself Free BSD" as a book and "20 Years of
Berkeley Unix" on DVD. I paid for 2nd day air mail, and received the book
on time, however, my DVD, no. I emailed and emailed just as you did with NO
responce. Then the survey came asking to rate them as a business.

I ripped them so bad an NT server would look good. A week later I get a
phone call and do to a "problem" they couldn't get back to me for almost 2
weeks. They finally sent my DVD and a BSD sticker.

I open the DVD and see it's a burned copy of it.....

Pop it in my laptop and watch it. It even told me what burner software they
used to create the DVD. And of course, it doesn't work in my DVD player,
just the computer. I was expecting at least a REAL DVD and not a copied
burned one.

Never order form there again. I'm not.

These are trusted sources in my book:

Both of these are trusted by me. The Slackware store is always on time even
though I know from talking to Pat ONE person does the whole thing for
shipping, and I pay for NEXT DAY and get it on time.

Free BSD mall has NEVER given me one problem so I buy a lot from there. I
highly recommend the sticker case plates by the way they are cute as is the
Tee ... And I ordered 6.0 on CD too and 300 dollars worth of books.

I agree. Don't ever buy from there, it was horrible.
