The ribbon must be 4 euros and the male to male adaptor less than 50 cents if you order 10.
The problem here is you don't always know what you're getting, and what you get isn't always what it says it is on the tin even if it behaves like it to all intents and purposes...
Yes I agree ... now don t forget the 'LOL price' or 'LOL description' thread is a place, to me, to privately (inside the space of this forum) chill out.
If you propose your Acorn stuff on this great forum, and not on Ebay, you won't suffer the same treatment
I understand your perspective, but there are people who don't know about this forum and want to get back into the retro community without paying a premium. I certainly wouldn't want people to restrict sales to stardot. In my personal opinion there is a place for both stardot sales and for those to the wider community via eBay; and from what I've seen with specialist and limited run sales versus those for mass appeal, I think the majority get it right.
Anyway, enough of the politics, I'm interested in what those with more technical knowledge think about the DOM investigation so far.
