actually im a point man myself. i never heard anyone say dot in reference to audio. i do say 169 dot 168 etc when talking ip address. i think if i went into bestbuy and the kid said 5 dot 1 i would laugh to myself saying dot where did he get that from.

Actually, to defend Bren a bit (not that he needs it) my understanding is that in professional circles, "dot" is used fairly often (so who knows...maybe that's what it was intended to be) but certainly 90% of what's widely used is "point one".

Several people I know that work in audio professionally use "dot" and I don't consider either one right or wrong. Certainly, I wouldn't expect a BB employee to use the professional terminology/lingo anyway.

Speaking of Audio snob shops. Dont ever go to a hifi store located near the hotels by the airport in SFO. Its a small shop with some real high end and some midend stuff. Id never go in there again. nuff said. I forget the name of the place but i remember its in burligame or something like that.

There's another bad one in San Francisco just off of Van Ness.

Let's just get this out of the way: for every good high end audio store, there are three bad ones.

I have a best buy extended warranty story...and I'll make it short:

I bring an XBox up to the register:

Employee: That all today?
Me: Yup
Employee: Do you know about our extended warranty service?
Me: Yes, and I'm not interested
Employee: You should be, I broke two of those in the last two years!
Me: Well, I'm taking it apart when I get home. So that would make the warranty pretty silly don't you think?
<Long Silence>
Employee: OK. Have a good day sir!

Or when they try to become a magazine salesman as your checking out...."oh sir, can I interest you in a years subscription to sport illustrated" to which I usually reply "no, but I'll take a year of swank or hustler" <long silence> "one moment sir, and I can check with my manager to see if those are available" (obviously this teenage punk has no idea he is about to make an ass out of himself) As I watch his manager laugh, and then he returns with his tail between his legs, I say "good day, eh"
