[Coladam] Holy Crap, Part II

Yep... this happens with some regularity apparently. I remember about a year and a half ago someone posted a new in the box, minty fresh ADAM system up there. The box was in perfect condition and was still in the original shipping crate. I think it got up to $700ish, and that buyer backed out, was subsequently relisted and sold for $350 or so the second time.

Collecting has no logic though. :)

Still, would have been nice to know what was in the microcontroller.  :(

     Here I meant, "in the event of a bogus bid, and the
current owner relists the item in an attempt to actually get
it sold".  Obviously, if someone really did cough up $700 for it,
and resells it, the price would not start at any less than $700,
and I certainly would not be bidding on it in the latter case.

     It's too early :-S
