I just called a place Monday about a bike on a CL ad. It had been up since 1 Dec or so. It fell off the list over the weekend so I called and it had sold the week before Christmas.my pet peeve with CL is the folks who email you asking if something is still for sale....to which you reply that it is...and never hear from again.
are these people just farming email addresses? perhaps doing an informal poll on the availability of items posted on CL?
fucks sake...were you expecting to hear an answer other than "yes"?
Not a stupid Craigslist poster... 1979 RD400 with one mile.
Or its owner spend most of his time in jail.Why does a 9 year old bike only have 4600 miles on it? Because it's too ugly to be seen on...
I don't bother with anything under $100. Not worth my trouble. I'll give it away first.Cheap, what I could scrap the wheels for at the recycling center, $60.00.
I don't have a problem with low ballers. I just respond back "no thanks". In one case recently, guy low balled me, told him "no thanks", he ended up buying it for what I was asking. Can't blame a guy for trying.Imbecile #2 - Local, at least in the same county, but wants to know if $60.00 is my bottom dollar, offers me $40.00. He's now been added to a whole bunch of fun email lists..
yesterday I was chatting with a guy that had a z50 on craigslist for quite sometime. He showed me the bike... it has a 125 lifan motor with manual clutch...lol. I think Im going to buy it.Haven't listed on CL for a while, but I did earlier today - set of 4 OEM aluminum wheels and fair (at best) condition tires from the old Tahoe. Cheap, what I could scrap the wheels for at the recycling center, $60.00. Figure if someone's in a rough spot and needs them, even just to use as spare tires or something, that would be a good thing. Big mistake...
Imbecile #1 - He can't drive at night or in the rain, is 118 miles away and that's too far to travel, but if I wanted to meet 1/2 way or even deliver them, he might be interested.
Imbecile #2 - Local, at least in the same county, but wants to know if $60.00 is my bottom dollar, offers me $40.00. He's now been added to a whole bunch of fun email lists..
Imbecile #3 - Wants to know if I'd like to trade them for a Gateway 486 computer without a hard drive "that's only 3 or 4 years old". Can you say 1992 vintage?
Yeah, just easier to take them to the recycling center this week.
ban = band?http://lafayette.craigslist.org/sys/5791100973.html
This is a Awesome PC, it's more of an editors Computer but that doesn't mean it can't play games, the contrary it handles games like a champ. With is quad core I7 skylark Processor clock at 4.0 Ghz and it's an unlocked processor. What does that mean? Well it means if you have the tech-know-how you can make it go faster and boost its performance. And with its beefy cooler it won't break a sweat. And since it is an editors PC it has plenty of storage for all those huge files a 2TB hhd hard drive. Combined with an ultra fast 240gb ssd so it boots up in 10-20 seconds and any other files you want to access quicker like games, programs, ect. The GPU is small but packs a nice puch making this computer able to handle any game you through at it. Also it has dual ban wifi so you can place it wherever your wifi signal reaches. And
All packed in a tiny little case so you can put it in even tight spaces wothout losing any power! I call it the IceCube Pro
I'm really surprised he spelled "losing" correctly!!!It doesn't take much to build PC's I guess...
ban = band?
ect = etc?
puch = punch?
wothout = without?
Not to mention (which I guess I'm about to do), grammar, formatting and overall continuity.
You would think he would spend a few minutes running a spell check (at least) to convey some basic level of intelligence when posting an ad (multiple actually) for a technical component such as a self-built PC.
