I found the 'published by ParanoiD Press' line quite amusing ;)

Perhaps, I didn't look carefully if someone else already spot it. Apparently it is not so interesting, only $16.

They were published in 1999 by Cargonaut Press.  Not sure how many were printed but if the number of them that come up on Ebay is any indication, there were very few.  There was one, possibly two that I recall seeing on Ebay over the last year.

The contents are listed and shown here:

Ah well. I'd try to fix the problem but I don't want to facilitate your habit.

The only way I've found around this is to have only one id at a time on the exemption list. I wouldn't open up sales to international bidders I didn't know because I can't track the packages or provide proof of shipping, and if the post office loses the package then I'm out. With people I know I'd risk it, but not with people I don't.

But I don't charge for shipping so, somone with a USA account could buy it and ship it at no extra cost.

I would be happy to buy it for you Al, and ask either Mike or John to hand it to you at GenCon, or I can hand it to you next year at the first annual AcaeumCon here in North Texas (Assuming you will be able to attend, and also assuming the talk of having AcaeumCon was not just talk induced by too many margarita's at Doug's recent Bar-B-Que) :wink:

There are many ways this could be done considering all the willing folks here.

You (Al) could also send direct payment to seller via paypal and the seller could then ship directly to Mike or John........
For hand delivery at the GenCon.
(Assuming one of those guys is willing of course, and I cant imagine either one not being willing)

The problem I'm having with the ebay exemption list is that I can't get it working for more than one user at a time. I tried commas, I tried spaces, I even tried emailing ebay for help, so far no reply. Right now I have someone from here listed who is bidding.


The only thing I can think of is get someone with a USA account to bid for you. have me ship it to them and they can ship it to you.

You could always open the auctions up to international bidders and make them pay for shipping with tracking. That's what I do when people want to buy from me and they live in the states. It's very clear. They have to pay for shipping with tracking in order to comply with PayPal rules. If they don't want to comply with PayPal rules they can post me cash in British Pounds and I'll ship it. Everyone always pays for shipping with tracking and I've never received a complaint, and only ever received one guy who claimed something didn't arrive and then when I prove that USPS had his signature for the item, confessed he had lied. Unfortunately in that case I had already sent Mr. York a second copy and he screwed me anyways.

So I'd say, trust us brits, and make it clear what the shipping cost is. We'll bid in the full knowledge, and you should see a corresponding increase in your final bids, even if we don't win. I'm sure there are many Mr. Yorks out there in every country in the world.
