You can't give these things away. Who would want to pay for one?

On the shortcut as displayed, yes. But in reality the HTML space (%20) has been added between the first and second number in the ID at the end.

Time to dig out all those valuable 486's ... Any gullible takers?

I actually rang one of them up today and said they were 'dreaming' and the price was insanely high, i mean only a very stupid person would buy a computer for that price!

There have always been folks like that. They probably bought them for about $3500 'n' years ago and havent kept up with prices.

In comparison, if you look in the Wellington T&E you may well find a Compaq 400Mhz with 15" monitor for $75, but Im not allowed by the rules to say more :)

Its like trademe I have given up bidding on stuff. There is always some dickhead who wants to pay a secondhand price higher that what it costs new.
I was trying to get a cheap laptop to use in my truck for work. There is always some cockhead trying to push the price too high.

cheers

Anyone ever accused you of being a potty-mouth?

Who was that question directed at Greg?

Never heard of that expression, must be my age. What is a potty-mouth? Is that nice or nasty?

The Rules.

1) Keep it friendly: If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything. If you feel a thread or post is offensive do not respond in kind. Simply email me, including a link to the thread:

7)No commercial posting, spamming, or otherwise using the forum to promote products and services purely for your own gain. This doesn't stop you recommending products and services to other users, nor does it stop a vendor discussing their products in relation to a post. But users who post purely to promote their business/website may find their threads deleted along with their user ID.

Changed my setting to Thread View in order to find that one out and it looks like Greg is referring to Ted. Ted does have a habit of using expressions that are a bit offensive and inappropriate for a public/family forum and I commend Greg for drawing attention to it.

And no, "potty-mouth" is not something nice.

No offence meant Greg, just for a while I wondered if the oblique plug for my ad in T&E had caused a problem. A moments consideration would have shown the direction of your remark, which in the circumstances is quite appropriate. :)

No prob's Terry - I shoulda just shut up (and left someone else to comment) :^O

But ya gotta love the expression - it's American, as so much of our language has adopted
