A major event in my life – today I finally lost my virginity … my eBay virginity !!
Yes, after all these years, I have finally bought something through eBay.
I’ve been looking for a print server attachment for my laser printer to network enable it … but this part retails for over $500 – a bit much to justify.
I decided to check out eBay and discovered they were selling there for less than $200. I decided to give it a go – it’s not the type of thing to “wear out” – they will just generally keep working no matter how old they get.
I signed up and bid on one auction that was closing the next day, but discovered I got outbid at the last minute.
I then found two more auctions and decided to bid on one of them – it closed this afternoon – and I won !
I’m yet to complete the transaction and take delivery of the goods, but I got a good price (under $170), so I’m pretty happy so far. I’ll let you know how the rest of the process goes.
