Re: On eBay: Rather nice R500 deal for only $224 delivered!

Since I just pulled the trigger on this deal underclocker has found, I've proved to myself that a good deal can be overwhelmingly tempting. I thank underclocker for the heads up about this sale and Harryc for sharing what he's doing with the R500 he purchased. Now to figure out where in the 'puter s...

Re: Positive feedback for FAIR Traders

Underclocker sold me a T42 recently, which I have put to good use. After buying it on a Saturday, I had it on a Wednesday . I've had a lot of fun playing with this machine. Many thanks! 8)
