'[AD] SATA power cord and data cord'

I saw a passing reference to someone who was possibly going to use a
SATA disk, and that reminded me that I have a brand new SATA power cable
and data cable that I don't need.  The reason I have these is because I
needed only one set, but the place where I bought them from had a weird
pricing scheme so that buying two of each was about twenty-cents more
expensive than buying one of each.  Go figure!

Anyway, if someone needs a set of SATA cables, or thinks they may, then
$5 will cover all costs, including postage (within the U.S.  I am all
for international  trade, and all things being equal would prefer to buy
from Wooter or one of the other "good guys" over in The Old Country, but
just cannot deal with what I might have to pay to ship to some erotic
place).

Uh Oh!  I goofed.  Just read the message I posted.  Sorry about that.  I
meant "exotic place."  (Turning deep red with embarrassment).  Please
don't moderate me, James!

Garrison Keilor once mentioned "erotic" on A Prairie Home Companion and
invited the kids in the audience to go look it up. It's spelled, he said,
"E R R A T I C."

Well now, it's not *that* hard.

- Goto : http://ircalc.usps.gov/
- Select Destination, enter weight and press "Continue".
- Select from the available shipping options and costs.

Small items can usualy use one of the flat rate
envelopes, comes in two sizes at either $5 or $9.
Up to 4 lbs.

I'm not sure how many times I've sent that URL to
US'ers that seems totaly lost when sending *anything*
out into the "unknown"... :-)

And, finaly, why whould *you* pay for the shipping ?

Regards,
Jan-Erik.

Most likely you do not truly realize just how really "unknown" it is to
the typical US person to think in terms of shipping stuff outside the
country.  I do not at all wish to start any thread regarding the
knowledge (or lack of same) that we in the U.S. have with reference to
shipping to stuff to Europe (or other places), but I know that I,
personally, have zero knowledge, and strongly suspect that I am
representative.  We are insular.  It is not good, but that is the way it
is.  It would be nice to change, but I don't see it coming.

In the U.S., it won't cost me more than about a dollar, probably less,
to ship it.  I have bought things on eBay, and one thing that bugs me
above all else is bidding on something but not knowing how much it will
cost me for the shipping.  I will bid a lot more for an item that says
"shipping included," just to avoid the hassle, than I will on one where
the seller winds up tacking on all sorts of ridiculous "handling and
shipping" charges.  Therefore, whenever I sell something, I say up front
that I will cover all the shipping and handling charges.  It is just the
way that I do.

I don't think Wouter is actually in Amsterdam...  :-)

And on a more serious note, I believe a small Global Express flat rate envelope is $5, and should be big
enough for the cables you mention (otherwise the next size up is $9).

I mentioned to someone last week that I used to hear the occassional
Garrison Keillor monologue on student radio and they pointed me to

Actually it is Amersfoort, but on a global scale I guess that is the
same. But by car it is an hour if the traffic is reasonable.
