That's the debris of one of the resellers that spent some time in Leavenworth for ripping Apple off on rebates.
Used to be MacWorks - then Shannon at MacResq bought the remainder of the biz.
It's just a pile of dinged Cubes and chassis they want to get rid of.
I wouldn't read to much into it. They just don't want any " I thought htese were real Cubes" come backs from people who can't understand the concept of auctioning JUNK
In order to receive feedback, please post feedback for us, and then send us an email telling us that, and also include a direct link to the auction so that we can quickly reach your item to post feedback for you. We're sorry we have to do it this way, but with hundreds of auctions every week, it's nearly impossible to keep up. Thanks!
All that for feedback geeze.
2406 Feedback is not enough eh.
Michael, Chris ( the language sounds like him ) was never known for his "bedside manner" and if you read most physical auction sheets the legalese is just as dense and as intimidating.
The pace of this type of business INSISTS that you cover all the possible issues in "no uncertain terms".
The subtext is - " if you don't like the language don't bid. Otherwise bid and shut up this isn't a tea ceremony "
Mr. Chris or is it Mr. Mike? should realize that he is part of the problem and certainly not part of the solution as far as the internet vendors are concerned.
If I want to kvetch, then let me kvetch.
All i hear about is the 'speed of business', 'how busy everyone is.'
I got news for the vendors out there;
BUSY IS GOOD ! repeat, BUSY IS GOOD!
Never complain that you are too busy to do something cause one day something will happen and business will go south and then the vendors will be sending the buyers email, faxes, advertsing to try and lift sagging sales. You reap what you sow.
All Mr. Chris/Mike had to do was mention that these were just hulks of Cubes and they were just looking to clear their storage space.
You are certainly welcome to kvetch and I make no apologies for the attitude but I don't think Ebay stores = Internet vendors.
Ebay is a cesspool in IMNSHO.
I've bought millions of dollars from Mac vendors who I've never met and in the most part it has been and continues to be an enjoyable experience. The virtual nose to nose haggle by phone or email is fun without the worry of some shill bumping the price.
The best horsetrade is when both parties walk away thinking they got the best deal.
Did I mention I detest Ebay.

You did now, if it wasn't clear before. depending on what you're looking to buy or sell, eBay can be the greatest or the worst experience. It's certainly a "learning experience". I've goofed a couple of times before I learned my all the ropes, but overall I've had a good time. I've only been ripped off for $4.50 US after over a hundred transactions. Call me Lucky!
I, too, detest eBay, but I have to admit that I buy a lot of software for older Macs from eBay. I would never even consider buying anything off of eBay for more than, say, $10.00 or so, though.
I have nephews and nieces that have mroe great software in their home than I have in the elementary school where I work! And they have an LC 575 and a Power Computing Power Tower 180. It is really difficult to find great educational/reference software to run on these older machines, but eBay is great for this.
Anyone have any leads on buying old(er) Mac software in Canada?
