Abdul:

That was not nice of you to bid up the price if you didn't want it for
yourself.  You just made somebody pay more than he should have.

Stunts like this are why I have never bought anything by e-bay.  Last year I
had my assistant (who is an e-bay junkie) bid on some test equipment items
for me.  At the last minute some bozo outbid us.  So it was a big waste of
time.  Then I said, screw this, and I picked up the phone and ordered some
new equipment which ended up being of equivalent quality and about the same
price as Mr. bozo paid for the used stuff.

BTW, $2500 is what I think a brand new full Protel suite should cost (from
Protel), not $8000, or $9000, or whatever the heck it is now.
