Title: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Devilmarkus on 17:25, 24 March 11
Hey guys,
please have a look here:
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290547845327 (http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290547845327)

(Ebay Germany makes it possible: A working Joyce without a monitor! (I think it's the last top-secret relict from Amstrad!))

Well so far:
Meaning of the description is:
old PC Schneider 256k PersonalComputer Joyce
I have not used it the last 4 years, also the monitor is missing, but 4 years ago the joyce worked perfectly.


I sent him a message:
Ein Joyce OHNE Monitor KANN nicht funktionieren, denn der eigentliche Rechner ist, genauso wie die Floppy, IM Monitor.
Sie verkaufen also nur die Tastatur. Diese ist allerdings OHNE Monitor unnütz
Means:
a joyce without monitor cannot work, because the pc is inside the monitor, like the floppy
so you are just selling the keyboard, which is useless without the monitor

 :D

Yeah, I had seen that too, but thought that maybe Schneider had released an IBM-PC with the name Joyce. Like the Euro-PC (lovely machine) it could also be the keyboard alone, but of course this is very thin... :D Should w report him?

No, reporting is not needed I think...
But he/she/it replied me: (Sorry, too lazy to translate it)
sehr   schlau, wirklich...  ich habe ja wohl geschrieben "Ich habe Ihn seit 4   Jahren nicht mehr benutzt, mir fehlt mittlerweile auch der Monitor."
Das Angebot richtet sich dann wohl an leute die eine Tastatur zu diesem Monitor benötigen.
Außerdem   war das keine Frage Ihrerseits... ich zwinge Sie nicht ein Gebot   abzugeben und auf solche unnützen Nachrichten kann ich übrigens gerne   verzichten. Danke

I still think he needs some reporting since his description is patently misleading.

The most funny things on Ebay (For several things!) are:
- The seller has used this item only a few years ago.
- He don't remember how it works.
- He was not able to test the item.
- Especially for Amstrad Computers: Was not able to test it because he has no disks.

Obviously not selling the misers (Joyce)  :-[
 
Is it possible to plug a Joyce Keyboard into an ordinary PC perhaps with a modified plug or something?

Post by: Gryzor on 20:02, 25 March 11
I asked the guy and he told me it's only a keyboard, no computer, BUT he did not make the Q&A public. Se what he did there? I reported him to eBay...
Title: Re: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Devilmarkus on 20:27, 25 March 11
I also reported him today.
He could sell it as "Keyboard für Schneider Joyce" but never as complete computer.
Title: Re: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Gryzor on 21:21, 25 March 11
Yeah... he obviously knows what he's selling, so...
Title: Re: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Devilmarkus on 22:39, 25 March 11
Ebay removed it ;) yeah!
Title: Re: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Devilmarkus on 22:46, 25 March 11
Hummm... Also the seller is not longer listed :D
Good bye!
Title: Re: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Gryzor on 11:10, 26 March 11
Hahaha! Good riddance... did you see if he had any score from previous auctions?
Title: Re: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Devilmarkus on 11:42, 26 March 11
he had 2 positive feedbacks (but for buying some items)

I'd normally translate, but that's not even German, you'll have to find a Bavarian that can convert it into something that can be halfway understood :D

I'll give it a try, though it does not make sense even to me.

yes, yes, insulting bavarians, that's what everyone can do well; until the meteor strikes, then you'll be glad, if we still reserve you a seat (place?)

Seat might refer to some kind of shelter. Still ... the words are clear, I just can't fathom the meaning.

Pretty cool translation of untranslatable slang. Yes, a place not a seat. That's some fun of one of Nostradamos predictions, that say a meteor will hit the north sea and everything will be flodded till behind colon. So since Bavaria is high abouve (close to the alps), roughly 400 m over normal sea level, we will sell places for all other people ;-)

Slang! Where I come from, this is considered to be perfect German.  :P (which is a little more to the east and south of Bavaria ... you'll also need to cross one border.)

Well, well, Nostradamus. That explains a lot.  :)

Hauptsache Süden ,-) Deshalb bin ich auch grad in New Orleans, ist zwar Amiland, aber auch Süden.
 
Haha, Du woasd ja wia unsa Heimatsprach entstanden ist ;-) Alle hatten einen Dialekt nur wir nicht, als wir uns nach der Schöpfung beim Herrgott beschwerten, da sagte der nur: "Ja mei, dann sprechts hoid so wia I.". Aber des wissen de Nordlichter ja ned.
 
In English: Genesis in short ;-)

Aber ich Liebe München weissbier...

Ebayers = Ebay-****ers...


Not internet Bayern peoples...


Also : isn't this language actual deutsch but under massive Bier dose ?
Hence the non-translatability for normal peoples... :D


Anyway, can't you all speack French like everybody ? ::)
Title: Re: Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
Post by: Bryce on 11:26, 31 March 11
Quel français? Sud français, Paris français, Picard ou Ch'ti? C'est exactement la même chose en France, chaque village a sa propre langue :D

Everybody claims there own language is "Queens English", "Hochdeutsch", "French" :D 99% of the time, they are fooling themselves.

Ch'ti ? Picard ?
those are also drunkard languages...

In Rhôn,e Alpes (Lyon... and Dauphiné...)
 We actually speack the true French.

There's no denying it.  ;) It also explains why most German act so sober just like they have hangovers the whole year through. Bavarians drink it, they feel the consequences.

Bavaria -> bavarages (oh well, I'm pushing it a bit here. :laugh: )

Thanks a lot! Nice to see that Vortex Format needs slightly fewer space (zipped). And some people more seem to like the download in Vortex format ;-)
