Hi Latok,

No rudeness intended. In an auction, I just sit back untill the bidding has ended. Unless a bid annoys me, f.i. by asking for signed photographs. So as far as I am concerned at the moment Onno is the highest bidder, but he must confirm that there are no side-letters to this deal. Otherwise, it defaults to you. No hard feeling I hope?

Grtz, WW

Only slightly off-topic.
Are we going to see other review material like hardware/software as well?
There were loads of reviews of interesting software which have vanished now.

Hiya Meits,

I truly doubt if many gems will still surface after all these years. What I am selling at the moment is my private little collection of magazines as well as the contents of my MSX Museum. Both have been boxed up for fifteen years, so it's save to assume they are not my top priority any more.
Back in the day, after my publishing company had abandond MSX, I was trying to sell the whole shebang to an interim manager. Therefore, I was not present when the firm moved from de De Ruyterkade to the infernal Diemen Zuid premises and I fear at that time there was not much MSX knowledge or even interest left within the staff. Stuff got dumped, I presume. At least, when I took back control a lot was missing. I can only hope it did not disappear in the trash.

Shit happens.

Last year I have scanned the issues I have and added them to the Wiki pages. I offer my help to scan the remaining ones as well, the buyer can contact me to arrange this. No precious magazines will be hurt in the process.

Please contact me directly, I might have a cunning plan that benefits all...

Grtz, Wammes

Sad to hear that a lot of stuff might have been just trashed back then. But that was the reality then... Shit indeed happens.

Reading that you're selling contents of your MSX Museum: will you put some hardware and software also for sale?

No hard feelings at all. How I see it, currently I am the highest bidder with 35 euros. Because you declined his offer. Anyway, I hereby raise my offer to 55 euros. It's upto Onno (or anyone else) to place a higher bid.

Hi Latok,

Indeed, that makes you the highest bidder. I'll wait two, max three days to see if any other bids appear. If not, I'll be more then happy to conclude this business with you.

Cheers, Wammes

Hi there Onno,

I've taken some time to think this over. and came to the conclusion it's just magazines I sell. So, no pictures. No signatures. Just old paper. You can revise your offer, if you want to. Latok could still get the loot...

Meet and greet might be the next step to make a buck on the side, after I've had my shot. And if I run out of money, that is.

Cheers, Wammes

Okay I understand. I withdraw my offer I hope I didn't ruin the auction sorry Latok
