As expected, that snes didn't work.  It powers on if the cord is just in the right position, but no video comes from it.  Wondering if I should attempt to sell it at a garage sale of my own or just trash it.

 

edit:  Nvm, it actually does work, tried the solution that the 9th comment suggested on this page http://techforums.ni...com/thread/5834, using a credit card with some alcohol and a sheet, and it boots up.  Still has a loose power connection, but a quarter for a SNES with a manageable fault isn't too bad, makes the day not absolutely worthless.

 

 If you've ever wanted to custom case / mod / portable-ize a console, that would be a great unit to use since the case is damaged and the power connection is meh.

How would I go about reporting retaliatory feedback when scammed?

and how would I go about proving the loss of codes? I'm not trying to get them back but it would further prove that person should not be trusted.

 

  Contact Pookymeister or Trakan to report retaliatory feedback.




#11899693 2014 Yardsale thread

Posted by Kovorkian on 07 July 2014 - 03:57 AM

Not gaming related, but went to my first yard sale yesterday!!! :D/

 

So, on a whim during running yesterday morning, my girlfriend and I saw a sign in the neighborhood for a sign-

 

"CRAP- xxx Biddle Ave Come pick up my stuff(its a yardsale) 11-2"

 

So, natutrally with that kind of advertising I had to stop by. Girl was really cute and nice, said she was moving and we could name our price on stuff. For 5 bucks-

 

2 St. Germain Cds

1 Buena Vista Social Club CD (for the gf)

1 Beatles 1967-1970 CD

1 Breakfast at Tiffanys Anniversary DVD

1 A Christmas Story Monopoly game

1 Elliptical (with electronic display)

 

The Christmas Story game and the DVD were sealed. We ended up carrying the elliptical back to our apartment about 5 blocks away. That was fun.

 

This all happened after I had brought up to the gf while we were running about something I would like to ask the people whom have good luck at yard sales. Do you guys have better luck in more affluent neighborhoods or lower income neighborhoods? I want to make a plan of sales when I go out, but I would like to get some advice on the types of sales that all these games are found at. I know the tips about starting early, making a plan, but what about the neighborhoods that you guys go to? Younger people, older people?

 

Any suggestions about this kind of stuff is greatly appreciated in advance, thanks!

 

 Personally for me (while I've had decent finds, nowhere near what some people get, but alas the "perks" of living in the middle of nowhere)    The random (unadvertised sales that you just happen to come by) tend to have the best stuff but that could be due to the high reseller activity in my area....

Title explains it all, a new user posted about it and rather than redirect them to post about it here, figured I would do it myself.

 

  This is still an issue.

Posted by Kovorkian on 04 July 2014 - 11:28 AM

Found this in the 20 minutes I had for yard-sailing last Friday before heading to Ohio for a long weekend.

 

Also included (not pictured); N64 console w/ expansion pak, 5 first party controllers (3 with somewhat floppy sticks), a Retro Duo console w/ 2 controllers & 2 SNES controllers, Obscure for XBOX, and a PSX controller.

 

 

highlights for SNES were DKC 3 & Mario All Stars

Also, I've forgotten how to post "spoilers." I'll update the post to keep the page less cluttered if I find out.

 

the codes  [ spoiler ]   and  [ /spoiler ] (without spaces) are how you begin and end a spoiler.

#11873363 New Kmart Clearance Price Drops (YMMV)

Posted by Kovorkian on 26 June 2014 - 01:33 PM

I get it, retail sucks and I imagine that somewhere like Kmart it's probably worse than most places.  It was annoying to have to wait all that time but it was the lying to my face and total apathy when I'm standing there trying to buy something from their store that really chapped my ass.

Never do this as a retail employee (or in general),  I will go out of my way to be a dick if you do.
