Just curious -- this stuff that's come
up, that you might not have seen
otherwise, how often was it anything
really needed? How often have you
bought any of it?
I too admit to having found some of
these ebay postings to be interesting.
But in the end, they were just
distractions from what was more
important to me: the scores of
electronics projects I've already got
... purchased almost entirely from...
you got it -- eBay. All of which
were found without the assistance of
extra postings outside of ebay.
I suppose I'm making a larger point,
that if you didn't try to find it
yourself, maybe you didn't really need
it to begin with. Maybe it's better for
your wallet that you never saw it to
begin with. Countless interesting
things happen every day that we simply
can't become aware of. It's not
necessary see or purchase every single
interesting thing, nor possible to
become aware of every single interesting
thing or event in a day.
Over-distraction and over-consumption is
definitely a growing bane of the current
So that's all I'm saying: re-advertising
here what is already advertised and
readily found on ebay itself (if you are
realistic and understand that you might
not be able to find every single
instance of something that interests you
nor is it necessary that you do so) is
On the other hand, if someone had some
magical powers of discovery on ebay, and
posted things that nobody else could
possibly find, that'd be cool.
