My immediate thought too. Plus they write like a 5 year old. Interesting
how they say about the Twiggy drives being a bit flakey, as though there
is a real machine behind all of this - it seems like an out of character
comment with the rest of the post.

I suppose it's the sort of thing I'd want to see personally before
bidding (if I were the type to use ebay, which I'm not) and if that
wasn't possible then just walk away.
