  1. Google, the Anonymous eBay Critic

    SMH: Clerical error exposes Google as anonymous eBay critic. Worse, it has not only revealed that it is Google who hides behind the mask criticising eBay's latest policy on payment methods, meta data in the PDF file has also revealed that some Google employees used Microsoft Word to construct the document!! Well. Google, listen -- don't worry about criticising eBay's anti-competitiveness. Just bring in something similar in Australia and we'll flood your way!

  2. Selling my Psion 5mx

    Updated 2 May 2005: It is SOLD, for a mere $130 Australian dollar. Not as much as I like, but well, everyone finds a bargain on eBays...

    It is probably going to be my very last entry on Psion. Not that I have written much in the past. As of Psion, nothing has really happened on the hardware side over the past years, even though Symbian is now dominating the mobile phone operating system market. Moreover, I am selling my beloved Psion Series 5mx on eBay. This little beauty has been sitting inside my drawer unattended for the last 12 months, and I don't think I will be using it anymore, so I thought I might as well sell it.

    It was purchased almost 4½ years ago, after my old Palm III died. Specification wise, 36Mhz ARM and 16Mb of RAM probably will not excite today's Mr. Gadget, but that does not obstruct its usefulness. My little Psion has been to 3 church camps, 3 MYC's, KYC and other talks and seminars. It allowed me to almost-touch type the notes on its tiny but usable keyboard - the best keyboard existed for a palm top of this size. I don't think there is any real replacement on the market today.

    It will be greatly missed.


    When I was cleaning the Psion up to prepare it for eBay, I discovered some files that I have almost forgotten their existence. Most notable is my follow-up log that I've kept between 2001 and 2003. In this log I wrote about many new comers that came to MBF, the conversations we had, how they reacted to Christianity, the issues that they were having and the excuses they gave for not coming to meetings. Most of them just vanished after a few weeks, but we still kept in touch with some of them! A few were even still in MBF today. But reading through all those entries - oh man, how time has passed...

  3. Bought and Sold

    For the last 2-3 days, I have sold 3 items and bought one from eBay Australia, and I think I might have started enjoying the process. You can always find bargains on it, and most importantly you can buy pre-loved second hand items in good working condition at a fraction …
  4. Ghost for Auction

    Virgin Mary, ET - and now someone is selling her father's ghost on eBay to drive her child's fear away, reported by Religion News Blog. I for one would not be very please if Anna is trying to put my "ghost" on eBay after I pass away.
  5. Selling my Abit BP6

    Well, it has been sitting in the garage for the last 4 months, and I finally decided to sell my beloved, hmmm, "motherboard". It is an Abit BP6, the board that rocked the world, which once provided cheap entrance to SMP by exploiting the multi-processor capability of the Mendocino-cored Intel …
  6. Who Would Buy That?

    A blogsite listing items on sale at eBay and other Internet auction places that are so odd which leave you wondering, "who would buy that?" Well, someone did buy that Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich. But I guess a better question is, who in their sanity would actually sell these …

  8. First eBay Experience

    Compare to my previous boring auction experience in real estate, bidding on eBay has been much more dynamic. I have had my eBay account for more than 4 years, but just then was my very first experience in bidding for an item. The item we want to buy is a …
  9. Gmail Account for Sale on eBay

    A few people have landed on this blogsite asking for Gmail invites, thanks to Google's efficiency indexing frequently updated blog sites. Well, actually no thanks. I don't have any Gmail invites to give away. In fact I am also waiting for a generous soul to give me a lift to …
