eBay numbnuts.

Bah. I bought a serial terminal server on eBay over the weekend, and the fellow said he shipping it on Monday from someplace in SoCal. Should have been here like Tuesday or Wednesday, right? Except I asked twice for the tracking number and today he finally gave me the tracking number, very proud of himself that it was delivered in Anaheim on Tuesday.

So I wrote back to him: Who lives in Anaheim? Then he writes back, asking me to call him. The area code for his phone number: (76)...

Where do goofuses like this come from!?

No, they just had me confused for somebody else. Another half-dozen semi-literate emails later they at least have *something* shipped out to me. I'll find out if it's the right item on Tuesday when the UPS man arrives!

Mickey Mouse lives in Anaheim.

This probably doesn't help you.

As an epilogue, I got the item a week later and it's the right machine and works well.
