    Not sure what they're selling here, but I'd like to attend their poetry slam.

    Three partially populated cases for $40 (each, presumably) in the 'gong. https://www.facebook.com/marketplac.../?ref=product_details&referral_code=undefined

    The one on the left is annoyingly cute, but I've done my bit with SFF retro building. Half height card options are too restrictive. The one on the right is the exact form factor I'm chasing for my PIII+mATX mobo, but it's an AT case complete with PSU, which I wouldn't want to strip down.

    [edit] Same area. Look at this tasteful number for a tenner :D

    It shouldn't be a problem to put a atx psu there, I got atx psus in both my at cases with atx - > at converters

    It's more that I'd rather leave a nice complete AT setup alone for someone who wants one (and also not have to adapt the front power switch for ATX). I'll wait for Mr Right!

    Little visit to the big junk bazaar in Thirroul. I've posted the big C64 lot he had there before; seems that someone has bought the breadbox, and the accessories are now scattered though the store.

    There are a couple of Wico joysticks not pictured, and also one of those Commodore branded hifi systems.

    Cool but useless tiny TV:

    9800GT I think:

    Things generally aren't price marked. I usually plonk stuff on the counter and suggest a price. Last time I picked up some loose cards (ISA NIC, PCI S3 VGA, Audigy 1) they took $5 a piece. All I grabbed today were two boxes of Sony 3.5 disks - they took $5ea for those too.

    It felt wrong to leave them there, but I can't use or even test them! There must be some OCAU C64 people in the area. Wonder if it needs to be posted in the C64 thread.

    I'd still buy it if I was in a position to collect it. 9-pin dsub cable shouldn't be too hard to replace.
