ehehe I bet someone told him it'd be worth thousands! I wonder if he'll relist lower, or give up. I've had one occasion where a seller couldn't sell an item for the price they wanted so they threw it out instead of re-listing lower :S
My 'cant afford it' auction for the week is the HP Touch 150 - http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing ... =805279392 I have boxed and sealed software for it, never thought I'd see the actual machine in NZ, but can't part with that much money for it. At least it's priced in the semi-possible region though.
Wanted - Dead or Alive - Reward $$$: Compaq Deskpro 8088 / 286 / 386 - IBM RT 6150/6151 parts - AT&T 3B2 parts VC Twitter

I can't understand why people do this. To me it simply mean-spirited. Surely a $1 no reserve/pick up only on Trade Me would move it, and give someone else the pleasure of owning/playing with it.
One the other hand I can understand people not wanting to SHIP something unless the person is part of "the community", or there is some quid-pro-quo or remuneration. Shipping takes time and can be a chore. Not everyone has the time or energy to do this for a stranger.
Its a very wierd auction... It looks like he's just after 'feedback' about how he should be selling it, rather then seriously trying to sell it for $10k. I guess it's one way to get feedback on that age-old question of 'what is it worth?'
"Don't expect it to sell for that! just looking to see what people want, it all in one lot or broken up (where I'll make other auctions)"
Oh well - if anybody wants anything, perhaps just post some comments up into his feedback on the auction.
