I'm mad because ad was added three days ago. And I watch it multiple times a day. Even saw the monitor when it was listed but just didn't realized what it was - 1st photo was very up close and I just skipped it. It took me three days to finally see it. But it was too late - it was already reserved. Later today it was sold 🙁
Eh.. I did exactly the same with a mint 29" Trinitron. Can't remember the exact model offhand, but I checked and it was a very desirable one for retro/console gaming. Bid $1 for local pickup. Thinking "nah, nobody else in my small area would ever touch this".
Fast forward to the auction finish, and I completely forgot all about it until many hours too late. Some other dude got it for $1.50. Bastard! That was over 1 year ago, and my local market has never had anything like that since.
Bummer. .. I had a marketplace listing bookmarked for weeks, sat there for weeks, box of meh parts for $30, now it was a real grainy photo, and there was a low profile GeForce in there that didn't look very special, thought it was a 210 or similar, terrible photo, and I can't use any more obsolete low spec PCIe. Only reason I had it bookmarked really was in case it came about I needed a 2.5 SATA drive, or a laptop optical or whatever else generic kinda stuff was there, forget now, though think there was an OEM SB Live too... all piled in haphazard so it didn't get you thinking these were premium guaranteed working parts anyway... so I was looking at pics of GPUs for some other reason and suddenly, a capacitor configuration rang a bell, *CLANG* that's a 1030Ti, I could USE a 1030Ti, check the pic I had saved and zoomed against google image again, now I was frigging certain it's a 1030... go back and pull up listing... SOLD. ... don't think it was sold very long either because I think it swam back across my feed only a day or so prior.
2017: Basement full of ancient PC stuff, starting to go through it. 2021: Still starting, heh, many setbacks. So what's this BitWrangler guy's deal ??? >>> Taming the pile, specs to target?
