Claw: at the bottom of Raymond's (cellarsites) ebay auctions, he has the tagline

"About Us: We are a nonprofit corporation  whose mission is to spread technology to those who are typically  underserved in the technology field.  Your purchases help to further  this mission. "

Is he really nonprofit and trying to liquidate to avoid tossing in the dumpster as you originally advertised on all the forums ?  All the comments others have posted about outrageous prices, is there anyway he could come down to a more realistic price on two 1084s monitors?  

For $125 I would expect to pay for units that have been refurbished with Retr0brite and a recapped chassis.  Your video presentation makes me wonder the condition of hardware.

Looking at his sold auctions over the past few months his 1541 drives were selling for $10.  Since you advertised he is trying to get $50 out of them, when there is about 20 others going for $5-$13 ?

You have the whole community covered with these forums, but he is alienating everyone.  Nobody is willing to fall for the "RARE / VINTAGE" 500% markup


As I have said several times that I have no control over the pricing what so ever.  The ebay seller has no control either.  What happens every weekend is I go to the warehouse and search for things as well as pick a few items I know should be of interest and get the listing price from the shop owner.  I then catalog the item and drop them to the seller.  The seller is a non-prophet and is doing this only to raise money for his cause.  His cut is a set price the shop owner has worked out in advance.  I don't have details on this as I was not involved in there negotiation. I do suggest lowering the prices to him all the time for you guys but well have to see what comes of it as like I will repeat its not me decision.

I'm only doing this to help the community get things as much as possible.  If the price isn't right don't buy it thats all I can say.  I will keep plugging away at getting lower pricing as much as I can.

Would it be possible to check for any new SSI or Avalon Hill titles he might have in stock for either the C64 or the Amiga?  I noticed some on the shelf when you shot that footage a few weeks back.  I'm especially looking for Geopolitique 1990, Ripper, Dr. Ruth, etc... Thank you for your help.


I will keep an eye open for you as we go.  Thanks
Claw

Expressing interest in that CD32 package if the price is right. Lay it on me Claw... how low can he go?  :lol:

...btw: what's up with that I/O blix serial port card at $210?? Methinks there's an extra digit in there. Take your pick: either the '2', the '1' or the '0'.  lmao

Expressing interest. Second in line for CD32.

i'm sorry but the way some of the stuff is stored makes me wonder the condition/functionality of the hardware.  All big box amigas have issues with leaky batteries so thats one of the first things I'd check for...
You cannot expect to get top dollar for something like that.

RIP Raymond Computer.

What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

LOL.  And for the record, the box mentioned above was indeed a C64C and floppy drive and they're working perfectly with my Chameleon64.  :D
