eBay: 2 Joysticks the Atari 2600 Novos and kit Reparo of joysticks from Atari 2600 CX40

Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about the purchase of two items eBay from the seller electronics-4-fun:

Those who follow the Skooter Blog know that recently acquired a Atari joystick of 2600 second hand in eStarland, but it did not work and the store refunded me, without asking the defective control back, since the cost of sending it back to the US would be prohibitive, thanks to abusive prices of Posts (you know, State company for more than 10 years in the hands in the hands of the PT, just you wait much incompetence and corruption funded by customers). The Kit of Reparo of joysticks from Atari 2600 CX40 It was acquired to try to recover this joystick, giving a survival him with a new board and a new tower, which has superior durability to the original.

The 2 Joysticks the Atari 2600 New They are what the Americans call New Old Stock or NOS, its acronym in English. This is a new product, ter no sense never been used, but at the same time old, By no longer be manufactured for a long time and that it was an old stock. Seus componentes internos não são tão duradouros como os do Repair Kit, but must resist any use that will do. Even in my childhood never an Atari joystick 2600 broke in my hand, my always ended up breaking the hand of any of the childhood friends who played with me.

Vou falar com mais detalhes sobre cada um dos produtos nos próximos artigos. Today I speak only about buying, which was made in 13/03/2013. I took it was the same seller (electronics-4-fun) para ambos os produtos e fiz a compra conjunta, saving US $ 7,20 in freight, que custou US $28,00 no total, na categoria “USPS First Class Mail Intl / First Class Package Intl Service”. The tracking code, starting and ending in LK US, offers tracking only while the package is in the US, or sometimes not even that.

The package arrived in the local post office in 09/04/2013, less than a month after posting. The customs declaration came marked as containing "Merchandise" (Merchandise). Os itens foram descritos comoatari joystick” and “joystick rebuild kit”, com declared values $18,98 and $16,97, respectively, totaling $35,95. The sender is "Chris Heffernan", posting of Danville in Indiana. The package ended up being taxed without opening, in 60% the value that was declared, which gave £ 43,44, that Dilma will end up sending to Cuba or some other equally damaging ideology of the country she so enjoys helping while watching the Brazil sinking doing nothing.

When the package has no tracking and is taxed, it gets a Brazilian tracking code, starting and ending in RE in BR. A imbecility of Posts, since they might as well use the very American code, which is usually known buyer, instead of using a code that the buyer is unaware and can not track before the notice of the post arrives. To make matters worse, the post office send the delayed arrival advice, when they send, because sometimes not even that make. Do not place who the sender, only the Brazilian tracking code to the buyer does not want to say a damn thing, even if it has various outer packages waiting. And to complete the entire porqueira, still write the tracking code on the receipt with almost indecipherable numbers. After much effort and several attempts, I could decipher the correct code, who gave it down there. I suspected that it was these products and I picked. But zero grade for the post office by the lack of useful information.
