My ebay ID has to do with the first type of processor I ever installed Linux on :wink: : pentium166. I bought my T60p there and some T23s plus accessories there. Love it. Beware of warranties!! or rather "warranties" I mostly buy EE related test equipment. I also buy parts for "exotic" computers (i.e. non-i386 compatible. I have an SGI Challenge L and some Sun boxes which are always fun to play around with. LONG LIVE UNIX!! :bow: :D

If anyone knows where I can get my hands on a cheap working HP16700 or HP16702B (with or without modules)... It's tough for a college student to afford a HP16900 :cry:

My eBay name is: realblackstuff
As in Guinness.

So far I have only bought stuff, mainly PC parts, and lately also TP parts. I'll be moving to the USA next month, that should save me a fortune in shipping costs alone!

I've often used packages of chips and noshes as packing for small computer parts.

They're often well received by folks who have moved beyond the normal distribution range.

On eBay I'm Argentphil. I use that handle for all my eBaying stuff.

Losmeme is for all my technical sites and forums. I use other handles for personal/banking things.

I have bought and sold extensively on eBay in the past, but the fees have become too outrageous. That can be mitigated by charging extra on the postage, but I don't like buying things that way, so won't do that to buyers.

I usually try to sell on Craigslist locally. A lot of stuff I might have put up on eBay in the past now just goes straight to the garbage, unfortunately. eBay was a great place to buy and sell 4-5 years ago, but it's worth has diminished greatly recently.

I've never been one for handles or screen names. I yam who I yam, I can't be nobody else, to paraphrase Popeye.

If I can't use my name, I will go as far as adding a number at the end. So while I'm Mike Blake here, I'm MikeBlake1 on eBay...not that you'll be able to tell anymore if we are bidding against each other!

my eBay handle: mmcomputers

I've been an eBay Power Seller for the past 5 years or so, I specialize in computers, parts, accessories, and random electronics from time to time.

I purchase my wares at local lost/salvage freight auctions, and either refurbish them myself, or sell them to other tinkers. Most of what I buy actually doesn't need refurbishing.

Unfortunately at this time my eBay offerings are pretty sparse, I have tons of stuff lying around the homestead, but little time to post it all right now. (School sucks... your time away ;) )

If you are looking for something in particular, drop me a PM, I'd be happy to look around and see what I have for you.
