Hi Chris!

I do plan on updating the eBay watch list. Stay tuned! I actually wanted to revamp it with lots more information but time doesn't permit that right now.

Best!

Hi Ismenio, 

Many thanks for this great resource! - I guess I must be one of the 27  - a search for items available to specific or other countries would be the icing on the cake!

BTW - have you any plans to update your other excellent tool (ie database of prices by model)? I have some data for a few models of interest from the recent past which you could have.

Best wishes


Chris

Folks,

You may remember that at the end of April I added a page to the site to show the current list of computers on eBay ( www.ismenio.com/ebay ) (available to US and worldwide) using the keywords that I use myself, so that is "my" list, except for when I want to check what's in Germany, UK, etc.

Anyway, the goal was to really share the list with others and the only way to do that was to use this eBay "incentive" program where you actually get a commission if someone buys one from your list. Like I said back then, I didn’t intend and don’t expect to make money out of it, especially when the “generous” commission is US $0.10 per auction. But I just checked that account today and the balance is $2.70 which means that 27 people (or 27 computers to be more precise) have been acquired through that page!:

Welcome: Ismenio Sousa      Balance: $2.70 USD » Payment Status      Account: ChessComputers.org

I’m just happy to see that people are using it!
I still want to try to list items available to other countries as well.

Best,

Ismenio

PS: In case you’re curious, I believe they only send you a check once you have reached $20.00
