In trying to flash, I never got beyond the "Suitable USB device not 
found, waiting" point.  Now, the N800 will no longer power up via the 
power button.  It will sometimes (briefly) display the opening "Nokia" 
screen when the external power is plugged in (or wiggled).

Is it time to send it to Nokia?

I wonder what the hardware failure rate on these things is?

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
