Watch Out...

MS is looking for an alternative to the alternative Mac, which they already bought.
After all these years they've come to realize that they're stuck with a couple of non-expandible OSs, and they can not use Linux for making money because is free.
But you know what? Let them have it, think of it as a Trojan Horse, we'll figure out later how to come upon them and take posession of MS Headquarters, once our spy chips have been unsuspiciously brought inside...

@maffoo

He is buying it for $125, though I may reduce the price for him if he buys my 1084s which he also wants.


@Amiduffer

He seemed to know nothng about the Amiga..........and even wanted to buy my SX32 pro for $500 !

Not knowing what an SX32 Pro is, and wanting to pay $500 causes me great suspicion! as in: His company may be paying him to do research on consoles?

Either that, or he has alot of Money to throw away.............................because as I have seen here..............Alot of "Amigans" here even criticised the price of my SX32! so Hardly any Amigans here were willing to pay $500 for it!

I sold the SX32 the same day I posted it! Imagine if I eBayed it!

He said he has been wanting an Amiga lately.
CD32 is actually the best Amiga ever made by Commodore!...

S'probably just Bill G kicking back after letting loose the reins of M$.  A bit more time on his hands, getting itchy fingers to play some games - "$500 is a little steep, but what the hell, I've got a few hundred million more left.."

Not true, other companies make money from Linux. Although I doubt anyone would buy MS Linux...

Okay...I recceived a message from leirbag... it basically says:

1. You can send me the money via Western Union

How do you send money via Western Union?

2. I get the cash in one hour!

Does he mean he receives the money one hour from the time you transfer it via WU or that it is too late now (he sent the PM at 11:52 AM CST)?

3. It has:
- some internal soldered wires for more power
- a PSU that's mssing the power plug that plugs into the CD32.
- a fan in the front that was cut into

Other than that, it comes in its original box with 2 joypads and Microcosm game.

So what would be required for connection the CD32 to either a TV or a DB15 (VGA) LCD monitor whose sync ranges are:

Horizontal: 30-81
Vertical: 56-76

So, what do you guys think?  A good deal?

It ends at 3:52 EST

Hint: see my post on the previous page (near the top) for more details

you need a psyquiatric as well



No, it means I have different beliefs to you. This is not the same as being retarded and in need of psychiatric help. If these beliefs became obsessive to the point where they had a detrimental effect on the other areas of my life then it would be a different story, holding these beliefs is not a sign of insanity. (Besides, I never actually said I believe in a secret passage at Area 51, or Martians, you seem to have made a false assumption. Remember, when you assume you make an ASS ou of U and ME  :-P )

Oh, and before you start calling people "psycho", please make sure you know what it means.

Laser: Unfortunately in my part of the world we believe in free expression and the right to say what we want without being branded retarded/crazy/stupid etc by people like you. People can believe what they want, they do NOT need your permission to do so, and will NOT be put in mental hospitals for believing something that you do not. :crazy:
I have no idea who you are but its about time you grew up, stopped trolling, and gave some positive input to this forum. Other than that everything is fine.
Oh, and yeah, almost forgot due to the red mist, sell it to the MS guy !!

Let X = X

To connect to a TV, you would need a composite or s-video cable, or failing that it has RF out.

For the VGA monitor, you would need a scandoubler. (IIRC, the CD32 doesn't have an RGB video port, so I think you would also need to get something like an SX32 to add one before you could use an external scandoubler.)

Give him it.  The next Xbox will be outdated and useless like the CD32.  Perhaps the box will be 'retro-cool'

I think you are being paranoid, leirbag28, the guy who wants to buy your CD32 is just a regular guy who works at MS, I think I know who it is too.  He is just a Amiga fan like all of us.  Actually he and I just scored some great Amiga stuff recently here in Seattle...

I actually work for the US Air Force, so if I had emailed you from work you would think the US Air Force wants to buy your CD32 for a secret Area 51 project? LOL

Well, having read this topic. I agree with the last post. Time to bring it to an end. It's wandered all over and insults abound, not to mention being abit nutty from the start.
I assume that this is not the same MS employee that mentioned AROS in is blog some time ago.
Sell to whom ever you wish for what ever price they are willing to pay. Your reasons for selling, to whom and why are you own.
