  1. I have 10 of my spare import pirate carts in good condition for auction. Starting at $10. https://www.ebay.com/sch/ianoid/m.html?_ipg=200&_sop=1&rt=nc&LH_Auction=1 Fun makes to check out, even if you aren't in the market. And I have a bunch of other fixed prices stuff in my store. Feel free to PM me here if you want to work something out for a fixed price item.
  2. Replied to the first to responders, each for a DC stack. A couple of others replied afterwards so I'm sure if those two don't respond, I'll have a taker for the DC stuff. The PSX stuff is still available.
  3. I love it, although it's still the same stuff if described less accurately.
  4. I think they are fine for Media in my book, I see them as data. But where to get rid of them? Trash?
  5. Really want to see these go to a good home rather than the trash. I have no use for these since I have a flash adapter for DC, and maybe eventually will get one for PSX. I am legally entitled to own the DC copies since I have a complete collection and just wanted a convenient way to play them without digging into my originals. NO ORIGINALS, total garbage copies in good condition. Some fun import titles. DC sets include a boot disc that you can do the disc swap with. Most require it. 10 PSX discs, all copies Free shipped in the US ~40 Dreamcast discs, all copies Free shipped in the US ~50 Dreamcast discs, all copies Free shipped in the US I will ship one set to each person, unless nobody else wants a set in the next week. Just tell me if you want more than one set so I can at least ship them together next week. Get caught reselling them and you'll get a lot of hate. I'll pay shipping in the US.
  6. It's a tough balance to strike for these shops. Raising the price of books to $3-$5 can obviate most opportunities for profit (when you consider a valuable book to be worth $10 or a very valuable book to be worth more). After time for finding valuable stuff, sales tax, storage (it can take months or years to sell this crap), percentage from selling venue, the $5-$7 profit is now $2-$3. But then the thrift shop is stuck with way more books that didn't sell because they are priced at $3-$5. I like finding books to keep or sell now and again, but when the price is that high, I'm not making any impulse purchases. Nor are 100 other customers that might have bought more as well. And supply is not the limitation at a thrift store, they usually have way too much donated product, the limitation is often managing stock. It's a complex balance at play, and raising the prices can only go so far to counter resellers without stymieing regular buyers. And by the way I've been seeing people with scanners since the early 2000s. Personally I have more respect for those of us who base their purchases on their own experience, knowledge and passion, rather than mindless scanning or price checking. When I pull out my phone while resale shopping, I'm usually checking my spreadsheet to see if I own something already. But I'll admit, I'll occasionally check eBay to avoid overpaying, since thrift store prices are getting so high, I can sometimes buy stuff cheaper online.
  7. https://www.ebay.com/sch/ianoid/m.html?_ipg=200&_sop=1&rt=nc&LH_Auction=1 Those are my auctions. Please also check out my store items by looking at the fixed price buy it now stuff.
  8. No humanoid trafficking in these forums.
  9. Box/overlays out of stock. If Steve makes more I'd buy a set!
  10. The goal is to both image unprotected disks with Atari DOS (and potentially other popular DOSes) with validation of files, and to flux image all disks with validation of nibbles. Information about protection schemes and any exotic nibble schemes would be really helpful for the software validation. This is for the Applesauce disk imaging project. As I understand it, Kryoflux and Catweasel can flux any disk, without much regard for the validity of the data. I’m referring to disk damage or other disk errors. The Applesauce software is in ongoing development to do this. I’m just trying to find some resources for the developer.
  11. https://www.ebay.com/sch/ianoid/m.html?_ipg=200&_sop=1&rt=nc The Big Box empties like Half Life and such are ending soon, sold as auctions. I also have a ton of stuff in my store. Please check it out! I add new stuff approximately every week.
  12. I need a reference for nibble level reading of Atari disks and Atari DOS. If anyone can recommend one, whether it’s a book or a magazine article,I’d love to track it down. Or if you have a strong understanding of low level Atari disk drive stuff, drop me a note, I need to pick your brain a little bit. This is for a disk archival project. Thanks!
  13. https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_ipg=200&_ssn=ianoid&_sop=1 Looking to sell them off of eBay or trade them, but there is a bunch of the spare stuff I have with pictures, easily searchable. I'd always rather do transactions off eBay. Not trying to promote my eBay auctions. Totally open to offers well below the prices on eBay, depending on the item. ian
