*edit: Yes, I might be looking at moving in the future. Lorna's contract with the lab she's in is up in Nov, and my job is going nowhere at the moment. Maybe it's a good time to relocate.
Sweet. I've been there before. It's a nice little place.

I can't wait til I get the F out of this town & get a new job

You can still get a new d40, but they are limited...

The AF issues that I am talking about are with different lenses.

Lens Compatibility

My D40 only autofocuses with the latest AF-S lenses, and also the the older, professional, AF-I lenses.

You'll have to focus manually with traditional AF lenses, which means forget about older lenses except macros (I always focus those manually) and fisheyes and ultrawides (easy to focus).

Every AF lens made in the past 20 years meters and exposes perfectly; it's just the autofocus which won't work.

Every manual focus lens made since 1959 also works fine, if you don't mind focusing by hand and guessing at the exposure.

This is a smaller deal than it sounds, since the included kit lens and other modern lenses obsolete the older lenses I thought I might be using with this.

This is why I never waste my money on off-brands. All the Nikon lenses I've been buying since the late 1990s, like my 24-85mm AF-S, 80-200mm AF-S and ten-year-old 400mm f/2.8 AF-I work perfectly.
