Now I don't understand. A couple of boxes will cost money to ship so why $1 for two and free shipping?! Is the seller going to sell your email and shipping address?

In the several years I have been doing this, I haven't noticed much change in junk mail..  I don't get it either, but I am pragmatic enough to get me some.  Those are set prices too, not lowball auction bids.

Maybe new version coming out, get a couple bux before worth nothing?  still, it's a LOSS.. I dunno.  I just don't get it, but the packages keep coming anyway..
When the testing is complete there will be... cake.

99 cents for a router? Plus this:

Okay, this may be the best one yet:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/110832814454?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649#ht_2471wt_689

I have gotten five of these now from different vendors, they toss them out as a loss leader I think to get stars and feedback.  Maybe that's the angle?

That is my purchase, and yes, that is correct.  Serial to TTL module, delivered to my doorstep, from halfway across the freaking planet.  for.. Ready....? 

SIX CENTS.

Yes but is that the final sale price or just
a starting price?  the six center was the actual price I paid :-)

Oh yeah, oops. I hoped you wouldn't notice that. :)

that one might just be overstock, in mass there's probably 10 cents worth of parts on it, and if you have 100 boards rotting away for something no one really uses ....

slash them!

I recently bid on and won a Forte VFX-1 HMD (with puck and EISA interface board) on Ebay - not that I really needed one (although my other one doesn't have the interface board); I just couldn't pass up the deal.
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

1x adjustable (2.5-9.0V) boost converter from pololu
1x active IR reflex sensor from pololu as well

The boost converter is just about 20x10mm and can provide several 100 mA, even if powered from 2 quite flat AA cells - and it doesn't get hot at all. That is perfect for completely draining otherwise useless batteries. The IR sensor can be used to detect objects behind a thin sheet of acrylic (IR transmission of that material is rather good).
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

and sonar, laser scanner thingo I've been messing with.

Don't worry I'll put the "good/evil" switch in a place where it's sure to get accidently switched over!

All hail our glorious robotic overlords!

Red planet has stolen your good/evil idea with their robot AMEE. In fact, if you add a rail gun on your platform and have it chase your dog or wild animals, that would be wonderful.
