That's fine. Nothing forces you to read my messages. That's one of the
beauties of Email.

As long as the market value of an adapter is higher than what it is
worth to you, you should not be surprised that you still lack one.

Oops. Sorry. I didn't understand that your postings looking for
various items were along the lines of looking for a handout. I thought
(at first) that you were actually trying to purchase items. I do nice
things for people all the time. Why don't you give me a good story as
to why I should go out of my way to do something nice for you? Are you
a student somewhere? Studying what? Is there some other reason? Or,
are you just a jerk? Hard to tell, having nothing to go on but the
Email to date.

At the time, I asked you what you thought a fair price would be for a
new, factory sealed box with the drive. I suggested that 75% of
whatever the new price was from somewhere like Computer Discount
Warehouse would be reasonable. You said that you wouldn't pay more
than $50 and could get a 3Gig for less than $200. I said, "OK, that's
cool. Good luck!". No hard feelings. You just weren't willing to pay
me enough to make me want to sell. 1000 people could each offer me $50
and I still wouldn't sell to any of them. However, the first person to
offer 75% of CDW's price can have it. If you want charity, say so and
say why you deserve it.
CG> From what I can tell so far, you just like to act like a smart ass.
Nope. Just smart, and it's no act. Even if I were, it's better than
acting like a dumb ass. :-)
