I never liked reserve price either. I start bidding on auctions like that, I put in some fairly hefty numbers,
I push the bid higher and higher,
but it says 'reserve price not met'. Then I say
"come on what the @#$^*& is this @#%@#% thing for sale or not?" and then I quit bidding and dont come back, OR, I email the seller what the reserve is, and then he (usually) tells me, and then I decide I dont want to go that high
so whats the use.
I LIKE THE IDEA ABOUT HP-19 type of listing (include the hyphen). See, lets say you had an HP 19Bii then officially there's no hyphen (because HP lost their marbles about 10 years ago and couldn't even figure out how to quote their own model numbers). So officially it shoudl be listed
as HP 19Bii HOWEVER, you say list it as HP-19Bii and
it will get caught by the searcher whether they type in
HP 19Bii OR HP-19Bii . Smart, very smart.
Hey know whats dumb, very dumb ?? What the @#$%#@$^ is an HP-19Bii ????? SHOULDN'T IT BE HP-19C ?????
What the heck is a 19Bii ?? That means they bumped the rev,
it should be HP-19C. I was wondering back when Ronald Reagan dumped out all the insane asylums and put the kookoos back on the street... where did they all go ? THE HP BOARDROOM!! Ah hah, Carly's past mailing address is now out of the bag.
