Well, I hope I'll get my stuff. I Before bidding I asked Ronnie if it's ok to bid and pay, but tell later my new address, since I was moving to a new apartment. He told "Ok, no problem", but still sent it to my old address. I didn't knew that, and now that I'm moving to new place, I sent him an e-mail "Ronnie, please send me MSX computers I won and paid for about a month ago to my new address". I got no answer for about 5 days, and then boom! "I've sent them about a month ago to your old address"...

The lesson for future eBayers: if you plan to move or have any over deviations from normal bid-buy-wait-receive cycle, better don't bid, since eBay sellers are so busy, they can't remember all agreements and conditions. Wait until you're in normal buying position (stable address, no need for any delays) and then start looking for the item you want.

Sad for me, but I guess highly educational...

For all the normal people, I agree, Ronnie is the best MSX (and now generic Jap-geek) stuff seller period. No one compares to him. He is the person who dumped the price level for MSX2+ computers from about 200 euro to 75 euro, and for TurboR GT from about 500 euro to about 300. Long live to RKLOK and lots of success in business and personal life.

BUT RONNIE, PLEASE KEEP YOUR PART OF AGREEMENT OR JUST TELL TO PEOPLE NOT TO BID IF THEIR REQUEST IS TOO HARD TO TRACK/MANAGE...

Thank you all, this is the real end of the show. Applauses, tomatoes and roses are welcome as usual. Boom!

As you say tomatoes are welcome: I'd like to throw one to you because you didn't have the decency to solve this with Ronnie privately. No one needs to know about Ronnie making a mistake. It hurts Ronnie's reputation which is a bad thing as Ronnie is doing a lot of good for the MSX scene (as you state yourself). Discussing this in public doesn't solve anything, it's only hurting Ronnie.

Ok, moderators, please remove this topic alltogether

Ronnie, probably it was wrong to express my frustration here. It's just sad if I won't get the computers because of a misunderstanding

All potential buyers: buy from Rklok with confidence, just don't buy if you plan to move in about a month or so. Ronnie have all the great wares and all the right prices. I'll buy from him again.

Bart: decency is a fairly strong word for a statement like yours. It's a market place, not some religion or some other nonsence. Both you and Sonic use strong statements where it's not really necessary. Is that a part of Netherland's culture? If you like a girl you've never seen before, do you say "I would die for you!" as your first words? A bit too heavy on drama, like in some silly anime crap...

Try to see it like this: we know perfectly how to express ourselves in Dutch, but when it comes to English some things can be misinterpreted because 'we have a good intention, nevertheless we don't really know what terms to use to express ourselves'. That is, we think we know, but it isn't always right.

Being Dutch, I suppose 'decency' is the right word said, but it might be a bit over-the-top in English. How would you call it?

yeah, in Dutch "decency" is not really that strong an expression. It's like saying: "you could have chosen not to do so, as that would be more polite". Or is "polite" too strong also?
