    3 UK bucks i still believe it's not that bad of a price...
    does it have the permanent smoke smell?
    i had a ps1 that smelled so bad...

    not sure if i love how it seems your house is full of junk, or should be worried ;O;

    Smells like most plastics of that vintage.

    That said I did pull apart a PS1 era hifi made from similar plastics that lived in a house of a couple of chain smokers once... poor little thing. Took a while to get rid of the smell from my room too.

    I know £3 is not much these days, however I got more used to getting things like that from clueless people in boxes of junk for £1 or so.

    As for being worried then I am well on my way to becoming a hoarder.

    I recently bought an MSI Trident 3 Arctic.

    I wanted something to use for development and for some gaming, with the constraint that it should fit on my desktop and take very little space. Sure I paid extra for the small factor. I hope it doesn't burn.

    Bought a 56 automatic egg turning incubator for my dad for father's day. It's what he wanted because his old 72 egg incubator (not automatic) broke. He had it for about 7 years. His last one cost about $160, this one cost me $80 with ebay coupons and it ships from within Canada unlike his last one that was from China.

    My order from tarantula canada came today. It was supposed to come yesterday but FedEx fucked and didn't ship it untill yesterday. So they were sitting in the FedEx office for a day for no reason when I paid for overnight shipping. Also they wouldn't give me atleast a partial refund on the shipping(FedEx didnt).

    I typically pull a couple/few from the wild each year at the Goodwill price, $2.50. :creep:

    I've also been told at yard sales (usually by kids): "Oh, THAT old GameBoy thing? Just give me a buck for it."

    Protip: Never pay premium. I mean, it's your money and all, so feel free to toss it around as you wish.
