Having Fun with Ebay Auctions

So a while back I decided to a little different on one of my eBay listings. Let’s face it, there’s not a lot of ways to make buying supplies for paper currency exciting. However I found a way: Alien Proof Currency Holders are what YOU need to keep your collection safe from unscrupulous interplanetary collectors. ┬áThe image says it all:
alien-proof large currency holders

In the listing description I added some details I thought would be amusing. Best of all I’ve actually sold about 10 of these so far.

Beware of Fraudulent eBay user: monamourdesun

This wonderful waster of perfectly good oxygen lives in Aquitaine. You can expect to find her looking for Ayumi Hamasaki products. WARNING! If this one buys one of your items, DO NOT SEND IT! As soon as Paypal allows she will file a dispute saying item not received. Of course the item hasn’t been received! It takes 2-6 weeks to reach France, not 4 days! However this bozo was making excuses from day 1 of purchase of why they committed but were unable to pay.

Interesting that the facebook name doesn’t match. Looks like this girl is a fraud in other places aside from eBay.

A Taste of Things to Come in 2019 — From Microsoft

There’s some neat things there. I hope the Google translator really works that well…the integration with Facebook so far is good but could be better.

You would think with screens apparently being everywhere that all of those corporate types would be working out of a home office. I would be ecstatic if the world could really look like that in 7 years but I’m thinking that’s more like 22 years away.

eBay’s Quality Search Takes a Hit

I hate to admit this but for the first time in 14 years, I made a purchase on Amazon.com rather than eBay for an item that wasn’t a book.

I love eBay. I’ve been a member since 1998 and I’ve bought thousands of items and I’ve sold tens of thousands of items there. Amazon has always disappointed me. Their auctions were lackluster and I can see why they scrapped them. Their search is horribad. You search for a book and find results for hardware tools. Sometimes I search for a book and it tries to pick totally different titles or authors. To be fair Amazon’s search can be fixed you just have to tweak it.

When eBay added “Best Match” I groaned because that feature has been on other websites for years and it was quite annoying. But it’s easy to change eBay to the normal “lowest price” or “ending soonest” which are my usual defaults there.

Tonight though, something horrible happened. I began looking for new memory cards for my Optimus V cell phone. It came with a 2GB MicroSD card and I wanted more room for more music. I was considering just going to an 8 although my phone can handle up to 32GB. Well when I was browsing eBay for MicroSD cards the search was filled with shit. Thousands of listings were filled with keyword spam. There were adapters, readers and players drowning the actual cards. Narrowing my search to just “32GB” or “8 GB” was impossible too as listings for a card including things like “2GB 4GB 8GB 16GB 32GB Class 2 4 6 10” So you couldn’t tell what you were getting unless you read each description.

I don’t usually mind buying from China as those factories sell stuff dirt cheap and the products usually work though I hear a lot of bad things about no brand memory cards being faked. For example a 2GB card can be tweaked using compression to appear to be a 16GB card and by the time it fails on you, you’ve missed the window of returns.

Anyway, as I was Googling to see if my phone could handle SDHC cards (it can) I stumbled onto an Amazon.com listing. I ended up doing a short search there and found a Sandisk 16GB SDHC card at class 4 speed for $8 with free shipping. It was ridiculously easy to find.

While eBay had thousands of keyword-spam-filled listings with nothing I wanted. I know a while back they made a “no more duplicate listings” policy but that’s being terribly exploited and they need to hire some people to patrol some of these categories. Even 1-2 guys getting paid $30k a year could probably handle the entire website. Give them a special area of the discussion boards where competing sellers could squeal on their competition or frustrated buyers could point out problematic searches.

A lot of the people on the eBay-hate bandwagon claim that eBay wants to be like Amazon and I hope that doesn’t happen ever. eBay has some great qualities but it needs to do something about the massive amounts of garbage.

The end of Chuck

I know a lot of people were upset with the ending of Chuck. A few people I talked to or read posts from said even just 2 more minutes would have been enough for them.

***WARNING CHUCK S5 SPOILERS BELOW***


I do admit that what happened to a Sarah over the last few episodes was not enjoyable to watch. That said, I found the last minute of the last episode wrapped up that story well. Let me reiterate that I thought Sarah losing her memories was really dumb. Not only that but she didn’t lose all of her memories. She could remember her name, she remembered Bryce, yet forgot only memories from the last 5 years? Too stupid. Chuck chose to use the last intersect to save people’s lives sacrificing Sarah’s memories possibly forever–ok I believe that. But then he should be a CIA asset again. Not just free to walk away with their secrets still in his mind. Did we forget that in early seasons they feared that Chuck could end up imprisoned in a bunker forever if he didn’t play ball?

Now back to the end of the last episode. I’m happy it ended as it did because with just a minute more and I think I would have been disappointed. Chuck kisses Sarah and it’s a long kiss. That means it could not have been too bad for Sarah. Had they agreed to “try again” and we ended up with a montage of new first dates and such, to me that would be disappointing. Without her memories Sarah is almost like a different person and so Chuck would be giving up one Sarah, his Sarah, for this newer one. I just would not have been happy with that.

Of course with Chuck having the intersect back in his mind he may have the ability to create another one that could be rigged to restore memories. Though Ellie’s plan of taking wedding photos and a dossier and uploading them into Sarah’s mind doesn’t sound like a valid way to restore memories anyway. When Chuck flashes on a killer’s face he doesn’t become the killer or gain his memories.

Anyway, the last few episodes were stinky with that story line. I do hope they make a TV movie to wrap fix it but if it ends like that which it probably will, I can live with that ending.

Pippin: A Game Console You Probably Never Heard About

It’s called the Pippin. Originally developed by Apple to be an early type of media center. Bandai licensed the platform in 1994 and called it Bandai Pippin @World player. Just 42,000 units were sold, at a cost of $599 each, before the console was discontinued in 1997. Katz Media Productions made 5,000 consoles in Ireland for European distribution. They called their verion the KMP 2000 and is considered the rarest of the Pippin models. PC World Magazine gave the Pippin 22nd place in it’s list of 25 worst tech products of all time.

The cool thing about the games is that they will place on the older Macs of that era. So if you wanted to play Gundam Tactics or tinker with the Dragonball Z Anime Designer, you can do it on an old computer as opposed to trying to obtain of the the original Pippin systems.

You can sometimes find the console and games on eBay. Here’s a few currently available:

Halloween Horror Nights XX/20 Event Map Guide

Are you going to HHN at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida this year?

Want to know where everything is? Well I’ve got picture of the event map up for your viewing pleasure:

Click here to view

I also sell the maps on eBay if you are a collector. I don’t recommend buying these if you are planning to go at a later date this year because the times may be different for shows. Though the houses and scare zones never move.

I went to HHN last night and the houses were fun as always. I was disappointed with the Bill & Ted show. 2007 and 2009 sucked, 2006 and 2008 were great. So I assumed 2010 would be awesome. I was wrong. I’m stunned that Avatar was not even hinted at! I was glad to see a certain someone return to the show. Sorry, I won’t spoil it by saying who. (Update 2015: I wish I would have spoiled it as I can’t remember who was there now)

Metrocon 2010: My Thoughts

I thought the merchant selection sucked this year. I don’t know if it was just in my head but it didn’t seem like there were as many selling. Even in the artists area, last year they were set up on both sides while this year they were only on one side. The vendors that were set up this year did have some good stuff. There just was not enough vendors for my taste.

I did get to stay for two days (Friday and Saturday). The anime chessboard was entertaining but the audio sucked if you were sitting back in the bleechers. Myself and at least a dozen others around me were all like “what did Mitsurugi just say?” and forget trying to understand anything that was being said when they had the characters on screens like Auron and Belldandy. Naruto was hilarious and what happened to him at the end(headshot)…well I understood the standing ovation.

Later I was watching some of the AMVs for the awards shows. This time I sat closer so that I could hear. Unfortunately, those screens they used were washed or something as the pictures were faint. There was a third screen above and some people laid beneath it, I guess to see the clear picture. I thought the Golden Girls / Lucky Star skit was hilarious.

For the anime costume contest, I think they should have renamed it as a talent show. From what I could tell, the costumes took a back seat to performance. I was very entertained by the skits though. I didn’t stay to see who won the awards but I think one of the Vocaloid boys was carrying around a Nintendo Wii box later so I guess they won. Cool prize.

Cosplayers in the halls were awesome. I got some pictures, check them out here. I didn’t identify everyone though I knew who most of the people were supposed to be. There were quite a few cosplayers as Yoko from Gurren Lagann and Hatsune Miku from Vocaloid. The only costumes coming close in number were probably the Sebastian and Ciel cosplay couples. I was very excited to see Terra from Final Fantasy 6 (3). There was a Gogo at Megacon earlier this year. I’m hoping to get a picture of every character. Also, special thanks to the cosplayer of Yomi from Black?Rock Shooter. I didn’t know who she was and I broke taboo by inquiring. I had to though, because I’d been seeing pictures of that character in different places so I wanted to know the name of the show so I could check it out.
