I hadn't realized that the entire Pearson thread was whacked!... It make me want to ...

There was a virtual gold mine of information here for Pearson owners, and prospective owners, like myself.

I specifically patronized SN (the business), and have encouraged others to do so, despite lower prices elsewhere, because; a - they supported the forums, and b - had the items I wanted in stock. Now I feel that some of the value of SN (the business and the site) has been diminished I imagine that Cam's recent experience with a particular manufacturer (begins with "T") may have had something to do with the decision.

This is still a lot of great info and people here in SN. I hope to continue to participate and add value where I can. It's too bad that SN is no longer the manufacturer resource that it once was.

Here is one way we can address this loss; There is a boatload of other good Pearson info out there. I only wish that I knew half of it... For those of you that would like some other sources of Pearson information, here are the ones that I use;
I encourage any others that may have good PEARSON specific resources to post links to them here.
