In Topic: Best Electronics - problem with ordering

Wed Jan 30, 2019 5:14 PM

Two previous orders went without problems but this time I asked for about a dozen different items (with multiples of some) and was told to limit it to 3-4 items because of heavy demand at least until mid-Februar.




He will soup-nazi you if he thinks you are wasting his time, are going to resell, are trying to horde etc. If you tried to order 2 of something you might be on his bad list now. I ordered a restored 800xl off him some years back and a couple months later wanted a restored 2600 too and he acted like he didn't want to sell and like he suspected me of trying to make some flipping profit, I explained my mother had been talking about how she used to play my brother's 2600 and I was buying her one for her birthday (which was the truth) and BAM invoice.

In Topic: Shielding in 800XL

Wed Sep 5, 2018 12:24 PM

 there really isn't much reason to do so. I do like to use the bottom shielding in my 1200XL with an Ultimate 1MB board, simply because otherwise the entire system feels a little less substantial than I'd like. By contrast, my 800XL (also with a U1MB) doesn't have any of the old shielding in it at all.


Your mileage may vary ...                                                                                                                                                                   


Well, if you've any amateur radio operates in the area it is just common courtesy to replace the shielding.
