More than its " colour " is the concern that their only "test " to see if its working was to switch it on and see if the lights came on

Who wants a box that does nothing except grow more yellow with age even though its a trash bargain

Daffodil bulbs are a better investment at least they come up once a year and the flowers make a tasty snack

I'd like to get my hands on that sexy official A1200 cd-rom add-on (not yellowed, lol) supposedely making it 100% CD32 compatible. But that was never released, was it? They were struggling with that thing for months and then they buried it. Didn't they?
Come to think of it, Altered Chicken had a yellow nose-thingy... LOL

What a crime. Someone should have rescued that poor A1200 from pinkjenko's (wtf?) dirty, smoky mitts a long time ago. Now look at it.

On closer examination this seller also leaves themselves open to spam by including their email account [ notice the lack of imagination , its proberlly their real name too ]

Still trying to work out if " Altered Chicken " is some post Genoble soviet crack of two other well known games fused into one

Maybe the A1200 was ran over by a chicken. And then maybe Alfred, -sorry, Altered- laid his eggs on top of the case.

Her name seems to be Diane Owens...let's all send her some feedback on her auction: i.e., "You friggin' illiterate weasel" or "At least spell and grammar check your drivel before you spew the auction posting out your bum in hopes of unloading your worthless refuse".
