        This one should be obvious to anyone with a little common sense, but
I figured I'd put out the alert anyway.

        Seller is brand new, zero feedback. They're allegedly offering a
Unisite programmer, but they provide no pictures at all. There's a grossly
high opening bid with a reserve, and the seller claims that it comes with a
"monitor and keyboard" when the Unisite doesn't even have built-in ports for
such (it uses a dumb terminal).

        If the URL is not reproduced, search for item #5162333516.

        I really wish the creep involved had actually broken some Ebay rule
that they could nail him on, but no such luck (yet). Anyway, I'd stay well
clear of this one.
