    My life as an eBay'er


    We've decided to have a HUGE clear out of stuff we don't really need anymore, and the eBay'in has started. 2 days of shredding laptop hard drives, reinstalling Windows (euck!), dragging out old dusty boxes, looking for those install and driver CD's that I *swore* were still in the box, a few hours crafting up the listings in GarageSale (a rather nice Mac OSX app for creating eBay auctions), and a photo-shoot later, and we're ready to go.

    First item up: a copy of Partition Magic 7 (with cd, licence key and user guide). Bidding starts at 50p (postage extra)... bargain!

    Still to come this week:
    A Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop, my prized Canon 350D+18-55 kit lens with extra lens and accessories, a Crumpler laptop bag, wireless keyboard + optical mouse, and a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop.

    Later in the month/early June:
    2x APC UPS backup systems, a Samsung 17" LCD monitor, and anything else we find while packing up.
