    I'd be breaking them into smaller FedEx sized lots- say 3 or 4 in a box, and sell them As-Is untested. Someone will bite. Wish you were a little closer- I've sold all kinds of weird things for some...

    I once had a laptop backed over by a mail truck, so yeah, sometimes your luck is going to suck. But, good packing gets it there most times. When a lot of hard drives comes in, a little "game" we have...

    Yeah, putting it in cars really doesn't make much money. Greetings from Wyoming, by the way. I work on the "More than Scrap Value" side of things. If you knew what some of the stuff you've put in...

    If they actually haven't received it, I'd be pissed at the Post Office. I've seen weird USPS glitches happen though, so hopefully it shows up in a day or two, or they delivered it to someone next...

    I'm way more boring than most people in my investing. I do a lion's share of it into mutual funds with good track records. I like the technology sector, so I'm in some of "the usual suspects" like...

    Online takes the fun out of them, but it also takes some of the deals out. There's always someone bidding on something. I liked the old-style farm auctions. Show up in a blinding snowstorm, and get...
