MS Press, bitten by Leap Day? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I do purchase stuff on the internet. I bought a book from Microsoft Press in January, got the auto responder message then, got the book, paid the bill. Today, Microsoft reentered my order... I will not pay twice even if they ship me two books...

Y2K, it is not just for breakfast any more....

I find Amazon and Barnes and Noble to be the best online booksellers for good prices and good service. Don't own either stock.
