Ask A Deathlister

Seems not.  I've had a couple of stupid replies from people in their 'help' section. Their replies reveal that they haven't really understood what I've asked.

One thinks it would be illegal "in the current climate", whatever that means.  :rolleyes: 

Illegal!  I ask you!  It's common practice at auctions in real life - you buy a lot that contains one thing that you want, and you either leave the rest behind or try to sell it on, and it's a great result when you can do that before leaving the saleroom.

 

I think the real reason is that ebay don't want people buying and selling offsite.  But I would be quite happy to buy this item via ebay on a 'buy it now' sale.

I shall just have to watch out in case he puts it back up for sale.  The whole lot went for way beyond what I was prepared to pay, which is encouraging as I only need this one piece to complete my set.

 

It might be common practice in real life but it is against Ebay Ts and Cs.

 

In your favour though tonnes of people will buy lots on ebay to resell as individual items for profit, so keep an eye on listings over the next few weeks.

1.  Only if the deal was done off ebay, which I wouldn't propose anyway.  I would want to do it through ebay for my own protection.

2.  Yeah, I'm hoping he only wanted one of the pieces and not the one I want!  That's what I would have done with the rest if I'd won.

He might not even want any of it. It's quite common as an official business practice to buy and then relist the whole lot.

That I doubt.  He was a very persistent bidder and the selling price was well over £200.  Selling those items individually would be unlikely to recoup the cost. 

There's something there that he desperately wanted.

Ah fair enough, might have right contacts to resell at premium though.

I've had the Kindle app on my phones / iPod Touch for ages but it's a real pain when the sun is shining trying to read a backlit screen. The Kindle screen is just like a book page.

The battery lasts for ages and it will easily sync with all your other devices.

 

You can download samples of books you might be interested in and Amazon give you a decent amount of text in that respect as well as a personalised newsletter with samples based on what you have ordered.

 

Everything is stored on a centralised server so if you do drop it in the bath / walk into a lamppost / get mugged you only have to replace the hardware.

 

And they finally started coming with decent memory as well (due to rise of audiobooks).

 

8GB default for paperwhite (5,000 books) and 32GB for a premium (20,000 books). Take your entire library everywhere with you.

 

Downside is of course should amazon ever fold you lose the books (but Microsoft's precedent for this is you'd get them all refunded).

Probably a good question for @Lard Bazaar, @Going Underground, or others.

 

Obviously we are in the process of clearing Dad's house. I have come across a badge that used to belong to my late brother - Iron Maiden Killers. There are others, but as this was one of the early albums, think it would be worth anything? Asking for a beneficiary...

 

Looks like this one:

You would be able to get something for it if sold on ebay, it's not one I immediately recognise or seems to be otherwise for sale which means it could be unofficial or possibly rare. So might fetch £20ish rather than the usual £10.

 

But the value of patches has always been primarily a memento and emotion to the owner rather than a resale. In your position I'd keep it as an emotional memento unless your desperate for cash. If he had a battle jacket that would actually fetch are fair bit from the poser market who can't be arsed to build up there own, but no true metalhead would buy someone else's jacket.

I'm not having 'a moment". You seem to have got out the wrong side of the bed and appear to be even more of a petulant cunt than you normally are. 

 

I' m just waiting for  @Sir Creep to stop being a chicken and ignoring his PMs.

EFA.

Maybe he doesn't want to talk to you until you are in a better mood.

Go and wank into a sock, you will feel better.

The sock will not.

Do you deem me to be in a better mood yet, I mean you've had a week to respond to your fucking PMs or are you too busy wanking over university college presidents?
