Fundraiser for a new graphics card

Postby heiowge » Sun Jan 09, 2011 2:37 pm

Here it is! My latest Mirror Borg. I'm selling it in the hope that I can replace my kaput graphics card. These posts have always been OK in the past, but feel free to remove, Mike, if you feel that enough is enough.

Here's the ebay auction link: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :MESELX:IT

And the Youtube vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xHOpoe8PjM

Hope you like it and happy bidding!

Do you realise your YouTube link comes up as:

Thanks, yeah someone pointed it out to me.

When I upload for ebay I upload as private, then I can add the link to the vid to the description on the auction site.

Then I copy the auction link to the vid description and make it public.

I guess that part didn't go through first time and I failed to notice.

I'm happy now. Less than 24 hours after hitting ebay, my cube has passed the £40 that would cover my costs, fees and shipping and still leave me enough for a similar / slightly better graphics card.

This is the last bump before I say how much it fetched. There are 6 hours left on this one. It's still at £41, so it remains to be seen if it'll go for more. I hope so, but if not, at least I made my target.

Don't be too sure... It might be a hoaxer. Don't ship until you've got the money!

I never do. I always wait until the cash is in my paypal. And even then I keep the reciepts until the 45 day period is over on ebay.

Saying that, the guy has 100% for over 100 score on ebay. He has also contacted me in the past asking if I plan on making another cube.

Not a hoaxer. As suspected.

Paid in full.

Does this give you an idea of how tricky this one can get? :lol:
