On the otherhand it saves time and again having bidding wars

So you have a left hand dongle valve for sale & ask £30 ono...

I offer you £25 as the first dibs...

Lets say just for arguments sake Virt then offers you 28.50 for it some days later...

Do you take Virts cash or honour the first dibs code ? Isn't that still a bidding war ?

Do I then fall out with you ? I can't fall out with Virt as I already don't like him... :lol:

Yes people should put a price on sale items, but often they want more than they are really worth IMO...

I mean £30 for a L/H dongle valve you gotta be kiddin me...

Last left hand dongle valve I bought made £35 as they have the thrust wazzock in them. The right dongle valve is cheaper due to the lack of wazzock. Stupid boy pike!!!

You're making a few assumptions with this post.
1 ) I know what a dongle valve is. The only dongle I know of is the USB ones you stick in your computer to get internet :lol:

2) I have that much money

3) You don't like me. We all know deep down you're jealous of Lloydie and Al :thumbup:

:lol: :lol: And to correct him on the term Dongle, it actually comes from USB devices that contain software serialization and licensing to make the software work, without the dongle you can't use the software. It has now become a more generic term and is used for network connections, memory sticks etc etc. :plainsmile

I am sure that type of dongle predates the use of USB ports. we were using them in the 85 and they were multi pin D connectors to plug into the old style serial ports.

remind me to find my 1st lap top up in the loft and post a picture of it. Virt will wet him self laughing

Is it one of those 5kHz processors I hear everyone rave about? With 8 bits of RAM? Transistors the size of my wardrobe? :lol:

Probably makes Colossus feels small too I'll bet...

In Japan you can buy girls used panties from vending machines, all bagged up ready for sniffing. Could help Seb's hayfever :thumbup:
