Holy crap: A working Joyce without a monitor!
« on: 17:25, 24 March 11 »
Hey guys,
please have a look here:
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

When you put your ear on a hot stove, you can smell how stupid you are ...

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?
* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D

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...

I also reported him today.
He could sell it as "Keyboard für Schneider Joyce" but never as complete computer.

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.
