I don't have a problem with his selling on ebay, but there are several
things I don't like. 1) Charging a $6.00 shipping and handling fee is a bit
steep and it would be naive to think he is not making a profit on that. 2)
Both his descriptions and everything he has said points to his worked at
MITS AFTER it was sold to Pertec. It would seem judging from his ads that
he is attempting to take advantage of some buyers ignorance about Altair
history. 3) What is his definition of rare such that these things keep
poping up week after week :)?
