  1. I am having to bring in people who should not be bothered with this crap. The best part is the links provided by TeeSpring which tell you how to challenge or better explain these situations are either not active or hidden behind a login, which I can no longer do. I have engaged my attorney over this to see what she things my remedies may be. The issue with a lawsuit, if one were even permitted by their ToS, is the damages are near nill as I did not make a lot of money on the items in the first place and I never advertised. I am going to wait until Tuesday for an answer before I work toward arbitration, maybe send them a love letter. What really screwed me here is that I had two campaigns with the word "atariage" in them. The first one I actually had to disable because I had made an error. So the creation of the second one is what sealed my fate. That and TeeSpring does not offer a way to delete these things, only to disable or hide them.
  2. On eBay. https://ebay.com/itm/124242435517 Not available new in stores anymore. Still in perfect retail condition. Offers accepted. Help me close out my final items on eBay.
  3. Yeah, and I am not at this point convinced I will be reinstated. My last email regarding the AtariAge connection has been ignored.
  4. This just popped up on me at some point. I sent it off a few years ago to Acil (Paul Rezendez) to get it fitted up. I know before when I had a WarpEngine 4040 it would wiggle up from the CPU socket and cause all kinds of glitches. Been really stable until it was not. There is also something else which could be a problem: my Deneb. I have a bunch of libraries installed in the flash ROM to keep from having to restart multiple times during boot-up. I suspect many of them are out of date, so I am going to clear it out the next chance I get and start from scratch, especially since I am upgrading from 3.9 to 3.2 (non Amigoids just had their minds blown )
  5. Holy smizmar, you just might be right. The links included AtariAge. I will bring that up to them for review.
  6. Sorry, my friend, but I am only shipping to Norte America. I appreciate your interest. Otherwise, I have turned my office up-side-down. I can only conclude I put the disks into my climate-controlled storage right before the move to a new facility. It is going to take me weeks to find them so I am withdrawing this thread until I have them in my grubby meat-beaters.
  7. I found gold today, from TeeSpring's IP department: Related to Atari? My TI stuff? Really? Prove it. Either these guys are over-zealous or they are absolute morons.
  8. TeeSpring locked my account and took down my TI Home Computer Apparel store for IP violation, even though I have a license from Texas Instruments. I already submitted the license back when I started the store, and now I have to go through a process to get reinstated.
  9. Yeah, Amiga on the Lake. I missed the "t". There has been talk of when ROMs will be available, but I can burn my own ROMs from the files included on the CD. The reason the Acards are ridiculously expensive is because the company disappeared off the face of the Earth about two years ago. I was distributing for a short time (several hundred units moved) when this happened. I had an order for 200 more which could not be fulfilled. At the time they were being produced on-demand with minimum quantity requirements. I was selling these to Texas Instruments for a while, and my buyer told me they had found what appeared to be suitable replacements. I never tried them, myself, but I may dig that information back up sometime. Good luck on the troubleshooting. I am pretty certain my problem is ChipRAM. I replaced mine with an 8MB SIMM but that only had minimal effect. Somewhere I have a dead 4000D mobo I dredged up with its 2MB SIMM intact.
  10. My order from AoL arrived over the weekend, and I picked it up Monday. Very excited but with an unstable 4000D right now.
  11. Two for two. Instead of buying a lottery ticket tonight I will use that luck to go looking for those fsck'n high-density floppies for another thread...
  12. I actually have the entire series ripped from BluRay on my Plex server. I have about 2800 movies and 280 TV shows.
  13. These have not expired but I do not know if they have already been redeemed. What the heck, right? Let me know which you want and I will send them to you.
  14. My primary opposition to eBay at this point is, as @Blazing Lazers says above, is fixing what is not broken. PayPal is not perfect, but at this point in my minuscule selling career it is convenient and works in a way I could not imagine any better. I have immediate access to money paid for items via my PayPal debit card or immediate bank transfer. I have dealt with some crap situations between both eBay and PayPal, but these are once-in-many-years things. Yes, they are included in my list of grievances and why I am done selling on eBay, nonetheless. I like @Tanooki's approach with the buffer account, but at the same time this is a game I just do not want to play. I want eBay to know that I and many other sellers are quitting because of this. I do not know why, other than wanting a more direct piece of the pie, eBay would drop PayPal as a payment option. The 1099 requirement is not a creation of eBay, so far as I know. This is new law passed as a package in one of the recent "stimulus" bills. Omnibus bills are a problem of their own, and this right here is one of them. This move is unfriendly to sellers who want to make sure items get new homes and a little dosh for the deal, buyers who want these items, the communities to which such items may belong, and the environment as more items will be placed into the trash. On the upside, this might help businesses like Goodwill and other thrift stores which outlet on eBay as more people take stuff to them rather than electronic waste recycling.
  15. Big-box outlets pushing to dox private sellers. Sounds something like legacy media outlets pushing to limit the reach of independent content creators. Nothing nefarious here, just leveling the playing field, of course. Now, move along. Meanwhile, WHOIS data is censored to prevent revealing personal information of individual registrants without jumping through hoops.
  16. "These are the voyages of the 99er, Ralph. His five-year mission: to explore strange new technology, to seek out new ideas and new applications, to boldly take the platform where no TI has gone before." Do doooooo do do do do do doooooo.
  17. @HOME AUTOMATION There is a coven-run gender-nonconforming brothel looking for a clandestine roommate to live in a curtained-off front room, in Portland. Must be okay with visitors coming-and-going and noises at all hours of the day.
  18. From what I have deduced from experience, it seems to upon both the quality of the shrink wrap and how the items are stored. To the former, the type of wrap which gets brittle with age seems to contract more over time. To the latter, and seemingly irrespective of the wrap quality, storing in heat will cause the wrap to contract.
  19. Recent studies indicate doing so would disproportionately affect the lower-income. There are still a lot of people in our societies who eschew digital currency. In the United States, depending upon to what survey and counting methodology you subscribe, between 7 and 15 million households who do not have a bank account. Ultimately for non-business sellers (most of us little guys) if you cannot prove the purchase price of an item you sell, you will pay income tax on the sale price, not the difference as gain or loss. This will push a lot of people out of selling. Not everyone selling on eBay or other marketplaces, which also fall under the 1099 reporting requirements, are businesses or operating as businesses.
