 I was more than willling to let the Auction expire (AGAIN) Who on earth RELISTS the same item that didnt sell previously, for MORE ?

sale is a IDE hard drive connector With a Compact Flash card & I don't state
3.9, i realized what you are saying when i checked my auction the other day
& changed it. you either seen it before it went through ebay changes has it
does not say that when you look now!!!! I do have the original OS 3.9 but
when i sell that it will be in it's own seperate auction. Or you can make
an offer for it???? BUT it won't be cheap!!!!""
So I offered her/him/it AU$10
Funnily enough, they have *ALTERED* the auction
ooooohhhhhhhh I hit a nerve.

the only ones there have been heaps sold over the years with os installed
has long has you don't include other software with it that could be
copyrighted!!!! let me know when you want to deposit the $150.00 for the
