Especially given that there's another 2600 on eBay, boxed and tested, at a Buy-it-Now price of £5 less!

Really, I might consider that if it were a quarter of the price - as a repair challenge - but £100 is ludicrous, even if the seller ships all that soil with it. :roll:

Still, it's only been listed since the middle of July, so it's early days yet... :lol:
Maybe the soil is what cost extra, I was also wondering if he was going to ship it with the soil :lol:

Probably best without the soil in case a - some sort of soil bourn infection or b - it is a cunning vampire method of getting home soil into another country prior to an invasion! :lol:

I love this one. Does one have to mark the map to get the Econet box - a bit like 'spot the ball'? :lol:
