Happy Something for A500 freaks : PC keyboard adapter !!!

I am selling something that I almost never see on Ebay and certainly not in an Amiga shop : a real Micronik Amiga 500 PC keyboard adapter !! I have placed the thing on Australian Ebay at THIS link at a starting price of one Aussie Dollar. I do have to be grateful to my beloved girlfriend for posing for me, a moment that has given me much joy

Your girlfriend is a small red 'X'?

What sort of KB connector does it have on the PC side? 5-pin AT or 6-pin ps/2?
Why does postage cost so much?
And why on Aussie Ebay?

The PC keyboard connector is of the Din type, so AT. But you can find ps2 to AT adapters in any pc shop and drivers for a multimedia keyboard on Aminet ...
About putting my auction on Aussie Ebay, what´s wrong with Australia ??? A great country, in my top list of countries to visit if I had enough money

Nothing wrong with Australia, I quite like living here myself... just seems an odd place to list your auction

Actually I also wanted to list something on the Chinese Ebay but I haven´t got the slightest clue about the language ... but Australia felt like a nice place to create an auction

EDIT: Sorry. Not the best thing to post!

It doesn't offend me, I just wouldn't let my gf do it

I can't actually believe EBay cancelled the auction though... that's stupid. (I didn't ask em to remove it! )

KG this has nothing to do with "standards"
Everyone has a different point of view, and frankly showing some skin is not that terrible, but ofcourse it depends on the person... many find many things offensive and many hardly notice those things...
and having MUCH respect for you KG and what u contribute to the scene, frankly, u should not have made that post... how do u think effy will feel? and if he was opposed to it, then his gf would never pose for the auctions...

everyone is complaining about the backgrounds, the gf breast etc... WHY? you are offended by human skin? human nipples? I really don't get you people...

Thanks for the support Keropi. The thing is not that I want to offend people. I see so much blood on CNN, so many body parts on the streets, that I can´t imagine that people get offended by this picture with my girlfriend on the background while that doesn´t even display a sexual action ....
But appearantly some people think this is more offending than what terrorists show on video´s ....
By the way, Ebay had the auction cancelled ...

np Effy, I just don't mind skin on the background... and when it is from a nice girl, I really don't mind but that does not mean that everyone is OK with it...

Not the lowest, I've seen some stuff listed at 0.01
(if it finished that low I'd be surprised)

Auction for the A500 pc keyboard adapter has ended at 15,50 USD. Isn´t much but I did have fun taking the pictures and that counts for it too I think
