Ebay…addictive, anarchic, and archaic

I'm caught up in the fun of selling stuff on eBay. But really, some of the people who use it…I advertised a bookshelf with the measurements and colour listed clearly in the product title. Someone asks, "how wide is it? what colour is it? how high is it?"

And the user interface…it is like the last decade of web application user interface improvements never happened!

I just hit a limit on how much I could sell. AFTER I spent 15 minutes creating a detailed listing for my iMac, eBay informs me I can't sell it for another 90 days because I've sold too many things in certain restricted categories.

So I'm going to have to sell my iMac the old-fashioned way. Even more old-fashioned, that is, than eBay.
