No, not a computer problem, but a footwear fail. After waxing lyrical back in December 2011 when I managed to buy a new pair of Hi-Tec Altitude hiking boots to replace my former pair that had lasted 10 years of pretty regular use, I was somewhat astonished to find this week that my new pair, being less than 2 years old, the sole of one of the boots has completely detached.
I rang Kangaroo Tent City where I bought the boots, and they were utterly useless. Yes I know the warranty is only 12 months, but for a $150 pair of boots to fail in this manner in less than 2 years is completely unreasonable.
The next step is to contact the manufacturer Hi-Tec, to see what they have to say about the matter.
UPDATE: 20th Oct 2013
Without going into all the ins and outs of it, the Australian distributor of Hi-Tec boots was able to sort the situation out to my satisfaction.
