Hi Charlie,
I sailed in the Saturn, Pluto and Diamond as Mate in 1983.

I have to agree with Art 6. Even though your son may not be interested now, but when he is in his dotage, or his kids and grandkids probably would be. My Mum is 80 today, and my daughter found loads...

I get the same, only not only on SN. Doesn't seem to matter which button I press, the screen stays frozen for 1-2 mins, then all seems OK again - except my temper.
