Hi All 

... reminds me of Dick's famous $15 CC1! 

Best wishes

This auction only lasted 2:15 minutes, late at night at least on the east coast US and Europe. Not very long to be noticed.

I can't imagine that the seller meant to put such a low Buy-it-now price. I envy the buyer...

Holland used to be green with all its pasture. But at the moment Holland is green with envy because the Overtom Museum did not win this computer.

I wonder why this offer never appeared in my browser  .

Thanks anyway for spotting it.

Best regards,

tom

I stumbled across the remains of this Ebay auction that started and finished in the middle of the night European time :-

Ooops, a US$ 1.99 Buy-it-now? Can this be true?

I tend to think, it was an error of the seller!

But if not: Lucky buyer!
