6 bids!

My old desk top computer sold on eBay during its second auction visit there. I watched the waning seconds of the auction on my tablet, as three bidders posted 6 bids, most in a flurry at the very end of the auction.The final price was not high,but a bit higher than the opening price. I was pleased for shipping costs reasons to see the winner is in my state rather than in Alaska or Hawaii. In hindsight,I perhaps could have sold it for local pick-up via Craigs' List,but eBay offers that luxury of putting things in the mail or shipping service rather than meeting up with a stranger.I could, for that matter, have kept this desktop and hooked it up to our TV as a media center, but my plan is to use a very small form-factor CPU to do that sometime soon.

A winning bidder on eBay is like a winning local sports team. It inspires all sorts of illogical but pleasurable feelings of confidence, success and personal charisma and sales skill.
