Model M13 New-Old Stock: [Ended]
« on: Wed, 15 January 2020, 18:08:22 »

Price is quite high on this, as you can get a Model F XT, or an AT if you are really vigilant for this price, but it is new old stock, that's a rarity.

That was actually a decent price for a NOS black one, I'd say. They usually go for at least $150 used.

It was there last night for sure, I saw it then. You need vigilance to find them for those sorts of prices.

I would say that I have a friend I have been trying to help get one, but he doesn't even want to spend $200, so it wouldn't be likely that I would find one that cheap before another $200 one anyway, I suppose. I could keep an eye out.

I can't imagine shipping one of those bricks to Germany will be cheap.

Not that it is cheap, but the USPS flat rate board game box goes international for around $80 and easily holds any keyboard, even a 122-key.

But I sympathize with the seller, I have pretty much stopped selling internationally on ebay for a variety of reasons, postage being only one of them.

"Narcissistic symbiosis refers to the developmental wounds that make the leader-follower relationship magnetically attractive. The leader, hungry for adulation to compensate for an inner lack of self-worth, projects grandiose omnipotence — while the followers, rendered needy by societal stress or developmental injury, yearn for a parental figure. When such wounded individuals are given positions of power, they arouse similar pathology in the population that creates a “lock and key” relationship. “Shared psychosis” — which is also called “madness for millions” when occurring at the national level or “induced delusions” — refers to the infectiousness of severe symptoms that goes beyond ordinary group psychology. When a highly symptomatic individual is placed in an influential position, the person’s symptoms can spread through the population through emotional bonds, heightening existing pathologies and inducing delusions, paranoia, and propensity for violence — even in previously healthy individuals. The treatment is removal of exposure. Briefly, if one cannot have love, one resorts to respect. And when respect is unavailable, one resorts to fear. Trump is now living through an intolerable loss of respect: rejection by a nation in his election defeat. Violence helps compensate for feelings of powerlessness, inadequacy, and lack of real productivity. He is certainly of an autocratic disposition because his extreme narcissism does not allow for equality with other human beings, as democracy requires."

That's a nice find, but I'd be surprised if that cable outer rubber doesn't disintegrate when touched.  The "flat" cables tend to do that after a long time.

That's a pretty fair price for an AT, I paid that, and they go for even more usually.
