I probably should sign my email "Troglodyte luddite..." or the like. :-)
I don't do credit cards at all. Nor debit cards nor AirMiles nor
online financial stuff of any kind. I know there are ways -- pre-paid
"credit" cards among others -- to end-run some of the risks but they
aren't for me until there's no other way to survive. I might be dead
Pretty weird, I s'pose, for a guy with 6 working computers who
occasionally even reads RFCs. OTOH, I only last year upgraded the
phones from rotary dial to Nortel 2500 sets (circa 1986?), evidence
that I'm not totally against progress.
So no, I haven't tried eBay. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
But if you or another NSLUGger has a retired wireless router with a
parallel print server port that's working but retired, I'd buy it.
