I wouldn't wish a thing like that.
I'd certainly bash the crap out of him if he did live here, however.


Nah...violence isn't the answer, not in this case anyway, I'd move him in with your screaming neighbor :lol:

That would be hell, however, I probably didn't post this: she's gone! She left months ago! :-D

Hi TjLaZer,

Yes I did. I bought a A600 from him.


Yea, and I noticed in your signature that you have already killed it.  It was working just fine when I had it.  Well, I can't blame you really, afterall the Amiga 600 is a low quality piece of crap.  I bought it from my local Goodwill for only $29.99.  Then I removed the memory expansion and sold it for around $38.00.  I then sold the Amiga 600 to you for about $180.00.  So I wound up making about $188.01 profit.  I would have never paid $180.00 for a low quality, piece of crap Amiga 600 computer!  I guess that is because I am a very smart man.  I also bought an Amiga 1200 computer, still in it's original box, from Goodwill for only $49.99.  It had a 68030 board and memory in it's trap door, an internal 40 MB hard drive, and an external DataFlyer hard drive.  I sold the 68030 board and memory for about $185.00 and the Amiga 1200 piece of crap for about $150.00.  Then I sold the DataFlyer for about $86.00 and the 40 MB hard drive for about $34.00.  I also sold the Amiga 1200's power supply for about $20.00.  So, I made about $425.01 profit.  So, all together I made $613.02 profit on two low quality, pieces of crap Amiga computers that I picked up at my local Goodwill for only $79.98.  I also picked up at my local Goodwill an Amiga 2500, Mint in the box, for only $49.99.  It had a 68040 board with 32 megs of memory, a GVP SCSI controller with 8 megs of 16-bit memory, a 2 Gig SCSI hard drive, a Video Toaster 2000, an AD516 sound card, a PAR card with it's own 512 MB IDE hard drive, a CD ROM drive and a HD disk drive, keyboard, mouse, BIG manual, and Amiga OS 3.9.  I kept that Amiga computer, Why do you ask, because I am a very smart man.  I kept the really nice Amiga 2500 computer and sold the other two pieces of crap to you suckers.  So now, who is really stupid?!  Not me.     :-D

Just a thing... NO Amiga is a piece of crap! Every one of them has its own flaws and qualities.

Heh man your lucky, especially with OS3.9 since that means someone gave it to the goodwill who had last used it in the 21st century...

BTW: Anyone know any good towers to use for an A2000? Current desktop 2000 case is fugly and kinda ... really bad airflow.

@Doom Master

Don't be Stupid:  The A600 I got from you still works great!!  Look at my sig again, I have two A600's.  I have another A600 that does not boot.  Am looking into getting it repaired at Amiga.fr, they do great work. :)  I upgraded your A600 to a 2GB HD.  The HD you sold me does not work.  I also have a A1200 and it also works great with my 040/33MHz.  Never had a problem with it since I got it a decade ago.  I don't mind spending money as this is a hobby for me, I just collect them.  I am not out to make money trying to screw people as it seems you are doing.  The funny thing is, it is only YOU that thinks you screwed someone over.  A boxed A600 is worth $180.  They are rare here.  I actually just bought another mint A600HD for $145 on eBay.  I might resell the one I have now.  All of my Amigas are mint and non yellowed so they are worth some money.  I still think the A3000/A4000 are the best models.  True 32-bit design, easily expandable, cabability for PPC/PCI upgrades.  The A2000 is simply too klunky and too old for any real usefulness as it is.  It's a nice machine, they all are.  I also collect Atari computers.  I own almost all of them from the XL/XE to 520ST, 1040STE, Mega4, TT030 and Falcon030!

Don't feel so proud, selling/buying on eBay is expensive, you should know!  Just because you found it a Goodwill and resold it for a profit doesn't  make you special ;)  You will end up paying out your a$$ when you want something from eBay later on right? ;)

I have an A1200 and I consider it to be of higher quality than my modern PC. Perhaps it's just the NTSC ones that are a bit ropey?

So, there you have it! If you want computers that work from ebay, make sure you buy from 'Spenceranne'
