eBay: A Seller’s Market

Some of you will remember that back in early 2002, my Fujitsu Lifebook computer’s power connector stopped working. I took it to Practical Computer, where an idiot who was a friend of the new owner fried my motherboard and probably the video card in the process of repairing the connector. I never got proper restitution from them–they accused me of bringing it in fried, and I didn’t have the documentation to back my claims up. I always intended to sell the parts on eBay, but now I finally am.

I’m selling the laptop as 11 components, each with its own auction. Three auctions close within two hours, the rest close in a little over two days. The total of the parts (9 will sell at this point) currently comes to $180.49. All auctions started at $0.99! What are these people on? How can old laptop parts from a machine purchased in 2000 go for almost $200 in 2005? The laptop was only $1500 to start with.


Fun in Blacksburg

Since I haven’t been blogging very regularly, I figured I’d update you all on what I’ve been doing down in Blacksburg. This past week, I’ve biked the Huckleberry Trail, hiked Dragon’s Tooth, and tubed a mile down the New River. Also been helping lots of people move in and binging on classic movies.

Thanks for a great summer

I know I’ve been bad about posting recently, but I wanted to put something up here thanking you all for making this summer awesome. The summer has had it’s ups and downs, but God is faithful and I know that He will never toss me anything that I can’t catch. So, to everyone I’ve worked with, my small group, friends, and everyone at The Gathering, thanks!
