Hi All,

I was going to stay out of this one because my *first* thought was there's
nothing weird about a "ready" indicator. When it's "on", it's connected
and ready, when it's busy it's flashing. If you plug it in and nothing
happens you know there's a problem.

Then I thought I'd get laughed off the list for being "old-fashioned." I'm
glad I'm not the only one thinking about electromechanically disinclined
users. ;-)

my 2 cents, too.
