Re: Collecting rants

Ahh ok I get it ! Thanks ! We are are not supposed to link to specific Ebay sales here, same with VCFED afaik. Fairly sure I never did that on purpose but have used some ebay seller images for informational purposes. Vcfed downright encourages it. They are very open to commerce in their forum …

Re: Collecting rants

I'm not against linking to auctions in forums in general (I try not to do so on Vogons because of the relatively recent decision to end the eBay thread), but I just don't see the point in the "what a steal!" genre of post especially if it happens within a day or two of the end of the listing. Let …

Re: Collecting rants

Personally I'd prefer if people would wait till the actual item has arrived at its destination so it's basically assured the deal has gone through. I mean it aint over till it's over! :P It could apparently prevent all sorts of trouble. Just wait patiently till the deal is sealed, just like how …

Re: Collecting rants

that sounds very familiar ;) "the fear of missing out"... and it gets worse with time too There can definitely be something addictive going on with any kind of collecting habit! For me, after I think 5(?) years it started to decline and I even remember the moment this happened: I was in my attic …

Re: virus on vogondrivers

And wouldn't wanting to moan a lot actually be a good reason to come here and moan? :P Depends what's causing the moan. Some things just aren't good for general display. True check out TFTS on reddit. you'll find they are usually called Karen. TFTS? https://www.reddit.com/r/talesfromtechsupport/ …

Re: Collecting rants

I wish I had friends or family with retro hardware x3 I at least have one friend who shares a somewhat compatible interest in gaming and hardware, so we basically ended up rubbing off some of each other's interest onto each other so he also knows some of the basics of retro computing :P But at …

Re: Collecting rants

It was never my thing to try to go as period correct as possible, but I have always wanted to at least build systems that would pass as contemporary. Many people would upgrade their systems along the way so to me adding parts together which are like 2 years apart is perfectly fine. I just never …
