Wow Moongirl, I didn't think to look in Wiki for this. Thanks for point it out to me.

After reading what Sabbath Mode is, I would never order an oven with this feature. Every time I get some piece of electronic equipment with some sort of programming that is complicated and smarter than I am - things go very, very wrong. It doesn’t not matter that is a Jewish thingy - I wouldn't use it if it was a Southern Baptist Mode, a Methodist Mode, a Pentecostal Mode, or a Shaker Mode.

I just spent the last three weeks trying to get call block off my answer machine (not thru my phone co.). It caused me many vicious headaches, furious relatives (including my 85 yr old mom), and a whole bunch of one ring phone calls that the answer machine decided to block. Plus, I spent many delightful hours talking to the answering systems of ATT, Century Tel, and Southwestern Bell.

My motto now is "use the lowest level of programming as possible".
Example, a mouse pushing a button and getting a piece off kibble would be preferred to a computer program used to activate a device.

full agreement with your priorities and difficulties there, Moore! And I'll add, all of those extra features are just more things that can break down....
