Buy my stuff!

Since I’m moving to Japan, I have some stuff to get rid of… to sell, even. Let me know if you want it (contact details on the about page). Purchasing will be easiest if you live in Melbourne and know me personally. If you don’t like the prices, we can negotiate.

Here’s what I’ve got:

[Update 1 July 2005 : the headphones and some of the CDs have sold (shown in strikethrough). So, too, probably, has the fridge, but that isn’t quite sewn up yet, so let me know if you’re interested.]

Sony MDR-V700 DJ Headphones, $100

(In original box. Ear-pads slightly abraded from use.). These are the best headphones I’ve ever owned, so much so that they’re actually a bit too good for me (they’re better than what I need). Suffice to say, these are pretty close to the ultimate in hi-fi headphones. For serious audiophiles and people with some kind of professional need for accurate sound reproduction. They also cause stuff like this to happen…


Yes, I’m selling that exact model of headphone. (Warning: Claims made about these headphones’ ability to make hot girls kiss each other are intended only to generate humor. I cannot guarantee that the headphones actually will do this, but nor can I guarantee that they won’t…)

Palm Tungsten T3 with 1GB SD card and other extras, $300

64MB RAM, 400MHz Intel Xscale Processor, 320*480 64K colour screen. (Not in original box.) Light abrasions on input area, some scratches on body.
Extras: 1GB SD card, USB link-cable/charger with car adaptor, USB card reader.


Sanyo 750W microwave, 5y.o., $50

LG GR-242MF Express Cool Frost-free Fridge, $200

About 3-4 years old, this is a nice, modern fridge that is surprisingly light and easy to carry up a flight of stairs (apartment dwellers will know how important that is).
