Ebay horror ...

I'm so mad. I'm watching on Ebay now as a greedy seller takes
apart a PCjr, and parts out the individual pieces for obscene
amounts of money compared the the cost of an intact system

We're talking almost a complete disassembly - he has even
removed the IR receiver for the keyboard from the motherboard,
and is selling that bundled with a keyboard. That part has
no use without the motherboard.

The power card, floppy drive card, parallel printer sidecar,
and the "RARE" 64Kb memory card are also being listed

I polite email to the seller suggesting that the machine is more
valuable as a unit basically came back as "I sold one part,
the rest is all gravy, I know what I'm doing so mind your own

So distasteful .... I wish there was a way to blacklist people
like this.
