So like many retro gamers and system builders, there are parts you've been looking for - and in some cases have been for a great length of time.
One of the pieces I have been searching for is a BKM-27T decoder card for my BVM-20f1E CRT so I can feed s-video into it as my treasured n64 does not have RGB output. So I had an ebay alert set up for any time one is listed. And I waited... For about two years...
Then a few days ago I randomly searched the "completed" section of ebay to see how often they actually sold. I saw one sold about two weeks ago for a price I'd have snapped the sellers hand off for.
No ebay alert. T.T
Turns out ebay deactivates them if you change phone/reinstall the app. But not /all/ of them. Just some.
What pieces have slipped through your fingers fellow retro-fans?
