I need a monitor, a cheap P.O.C.
Its only going to be running one not very demanding software with probably 5 basic colors so i dont care if its an 8" screen or a 25" screen. Well 8" might be a bit small but you know hat I mean.
So i look on ebay for items within 25 miles, and came across a place that is selling refurbished Dell monitors for cheap, the next town over.
They charge a flat rate shipping of 25 dollars, seems a bit high but Cathode Ray Tube monitors are not all that light still. Anyways its not worth paying 25 dollars for a 5 minute car ride. So i email them asking for local pickup instead and explaining why.
Theres a 10 dollar fee for local pickup I am told! Holy crap! What possible reason is there for this madness?
