Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Wrong Jesus musical - Day by Day is from Godspell.  :smileyhappy:  (but I thnk dgiznya was quoting another song?)

 

 

As for the update I don't know about the date, but I somehow have it in my head that the update will come on a Monday or Tuesday.  This is why I can't believe this Friday like many are predicting, but of course since today is Thursday of course I hope I'm wrong.

Re: time to place your bets!!!

What really happens: 

 

The tech support staff know nothing.  They leave Friday evening ready to enjoy a quiet weekend.

 

The IT staff also wants to spend a quiet weekend, so they drop the upgrade to the public as they walk out the door on Friday.

 

All H**l breaks out when the servers become overloaded and the weekend customer support staff still hasn't received the word about the upgrade.

 

Just the facts!

Re: time to place your bets!!!

I am not sure about all that but I just got off the phone with Technical Support.  I had to call them because I lost my NC.  I am just beside myself and wanted to inflict more pain on myself and asked if they knew when the download would occur.  She admitted did not know for sure but suggested April 21.  Oh me I am so distraught.  Don't know what I am going to do!  I have had withdrawal pains!

The only problem with that scenario is it neglects to mention all the pages and texts and phone calls that go out to the admins, regardless of the day or the hour.   :smileysad:

So how was CS able to help you with a lost nook? Do you have the extended warranty and does that cover loss?

Re: time to place your bets!!!

I'm guessing this weekend.

 

I had my NC blow out two days ago (it couldn't even get back to factory settings, due to a possible battery or software issue).  I took it in to my local B&N where they did everything they could to fix it - and the manager seemed pretty tech savvy.  Anyway, after switching out my NC under the warranty they suggested I bring it back in this weekend because they were expecting the update Friday and wanted to manually sideload the update onto the NC to make sure no corruption occurs.  They stated it is a big update, so they want to make sure nothing goes wrong with it coming in over my home wi-fi.  They are apparently telling all NC owners they encounter to bring in their NCs for the update.

 

And so, we'll see :smileytongue:

No love for phoneBoy.

 

Well it looks like the 15th is a bust.  At least it appears that way.

Don't take ol' Phoney to Vegas with you.
