This topic pretty much killed those. So maybe someone should start a "My eBay sales/auctions" topic in here or somethin...

Well I'm obviously not picking on this seller specifically - but as a general thing, you stand to gain a lot more if you offer free shipping and then just increase the item price by the amount you would've charged anyways. Hardly a general thing, maybe just your personal preference? Because in mark...

Taking a trip down Amiga memory lane

So waaay back in 1995, I put some stuff in a shed. 23 years later, I opened the shed. And there it was, all forgotten. My old desk, my old Amiga 500, a couple of hundred of floppy disks, and a couple of hundred magazines. The stench is horrible, it all reeks of mold. The magazines, lots of Crash, Si...

And some might argue Korea. But the premise is that if they'd forcefully put a puppet government in the Netherlands to harvest the gas fields, and bomb the resistance terrorists and everyone near, to set an example, with it, morally it would be hypocritical to complain.

There's at least one way in which China is a better country than Western ones. :evilgeek:

They aren't waging wars and bombing people around the world for control of oil and other riches. Their Lebensraum story stops at Taiwan and Tibet.

In any case they don't seem to have the SSK molds!!!! it is not, its from an ibm japan buckling spring board. the 5576 C01 IIRC. Wow. The casing does appear to be identical.

I've taken a look, it's not related to password length.

It's just a bit shit and simple and seems to do not assign extra weight when the search words are in the title. It looks for both search words, and finds both "chicony" and "kb-5161" in all those articles. It works a bit better when you search for a phrase and enclose it in quotes, but then you'd ne...

One would think there's a trick, because from a production point of view, the standard would be that the switches are soldered to the pcb and later in the production the keycaps are applied. It would have made the production process more expensive if the complication was introduced where one switch ...
