        But *this* guy says Z80s are ultra rare!

There are a number of good sellers on eBay. Then there are the complete
twits like this that think the pretty piece of 40 legged plastic they pulled
out of a dead box is "rare" because they've seen the word 'Zilog' before. I
would *love* to see eBay install a filter that automatically removed the
word "rare" from titles. And if it's so ultra rare, why didn't an
enlightened collector snap it up at the bargain price of only $7.99?
