  • "Super Computer Sale" in Collinsville, IL

    Consider this a prequel to my FedEx Update.

    Is anyone going to this thing? Anyone gone in hte past?

    What type of deals on PC system could I expect to get? On "barebones" systems? Parts?

    Any advice would be helpful -- including advice on how to persuade someone to go along with you.
    When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

    $$$...or if they're little kids, ask if they can keep a secret, then tell them you've got candy...
    . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

        WS, did you just ask me to meet you in a public place?

        I might go.

        Still waiting on a friend to ask me to go. I never buy things of this nature, but I sure can persuade other fux to spend the money.

          I wouldn't go.

          A: they charge a cover to get through the door.
          B: they usually have above market prices on stuff anyways
          C: It's usually all junk.
          D: A bunch of it is stolen.

            So does the strip joints you frequent on 3 weekends a month anyway......

            B: they usually have above market prices on stuff anyways
            So does the baseball team we have in STL, but you still go to the games......

            C: It's usually all junk.
            Anything I said above covers this statement.


            D: A bunch of it is stolen.
            So is half the files on your hard drive........

              Maybe I can buy back my Vaio.


              Jack already took my strip club comment.

                To agree with Zezel for the second time in two days -

                While I don't know whether it is stolen or not.

                It is extremely disorganized - and cluttered.

                Most of what is sold is junk or worthless.

                Anything of value is definately at or above market price.

                I wouldn't pay a cover charge for what they have.

                  Well, that solves that.

                  It also solves me having to attend a tupperware party in return.

                    When I worked @ CompUSA we'd see theft consistanly rise 25-40% in the week before one of these sales....because the theives know that they can quickly and anonomously get rid of the merchandise quickly.
