    So reading RedRacers comment about reselling made me think about changing up the OPs question a bit, and that's how much you'd pay for a system under the assumption they were worth nothing in resale?...

    Yeah, I think the more accurate question is 'Whats the MAX you'd pay for any vintage computer'. For me, that number is about $100. I'm not counting some crazy thing like I stumbled across an Imsai...

    Yeah, Hangouts Dialer is basically the Hangouts interface for Google Voice, but the Google Voice app is their path going forward... at least this week. :)

    Yeah, I don't think this is to avoid ebay fees, it's still part of ebay so still has all the safety stuff. I personally would just let it go to auction since it does seem a little suspicious. While...

    Yeah, in this case I think it's less about a generational thing and more about his interests and target audience.. he's into gaming and so is his audience, so CP/M machines probably aren't his...

    Yeah, a lot of the stuff there was PC (IBM's and clones) related stuff, so it hasn't been of interest to me either... If there was non-PC stuff, I didn't see much of it really, and it's for the best...

    So i noticed that the freedompop sprint stuff is going away (moved to Ting) so I went through and cancelled those.. While I was there, i noticed my account with the international GSM was also going...

    Hahaha, yeah, i have an xt-ide card i've been building... I'm stuck waiting for those dang resistor array's to come from china, i didn't have those. That wasn't really much cheaper and it definitely...

    Btw, watched Adrians video where he showed off the jrIDE card... definitely looks worth it. Very impressed.

    That's true, but there's been cases where I've been able to assemble my one offs for quite a bit less than buying an assembled one. Obviously depends where you're buying parts. A recent example for...

    I think we all have experienced the 'how much is this thing? oh, its listed for $150 on ebay, so let me price it for $150 on CL because I don't understand ebay and don't want to pay fees.. More...

    Have you thought about moving? :)

    But no, I totally get it.. I've mentioned this to friends in the hobby as well that the per hour price isn't worth it... I like to build it for myself, but I...

    Makes sense. I only care about the MFM one because I'd like to use my original ST hard drive hardware vs using something like an ultrasatan.. but I guess using the original hardware isn't worth...

    Those are handy, I know a few people who've purchased that and swear by it. I was super lazy and just bought new (or maybe NOS, who really knows) dallas chips, but eventually I'll break down and go...

    Well, I think technically glitch is doing some of that with some of his stuff.. improving on others designs. I'm not sure the 'china reproduction' houses are actually improving anything, but...

    So where do you stand on compilations then? For instance, say I decide to make a retropie image with tons of retro software included. Maybe i've spent a hundred hours cleaning up duplicates and...

    Yup, I don't disagree with this either. I only question the part where one's "reproduced" the old item and then someone has "reproduced" the new reproduction and if we have a right to get angry that...

    Yeah, I think that was more my point. None of this is black and white really, it's just all shades of grey. If some Chinese company is reproducing your work, but you're reproducing someone elses...

    So similar to what NeXT was saying, there's one that I'm curious on. What if the original product isn't made anymore, does that open the door for others to make the product even if it's not open...

    I'm not sure that matters. If you're buying it from eBay (Which, honestly, is where you're buying something cheap), you're probably not thinking it's the creators product that you're buying cheaper...

    The only thing i have to add is that depending on your pricing, these are pretty common cables to buy so might not be worth the effort. A quick search on eBay shows 5 pin c64 video cables for as low...
