eBay watch: Risc PC upgrades and Vintage Acorn

ebayThis is our first eBay watch for a while, and we've missed a few interesting items on the premier auction site which included a few Iyonix PCs. Currently it is rather quiet in the RISC OS quarters of eBay, perhaps due to people being away for the summer, but we've managed to find a few items of interest:

RISC OS Ltd recently stopped selling RISC OS 4.02 ROM upgrades, so the only way to get them is second hand. as28565 is selling a pair which finish in 5 days time.

batoutofhull is selling a Online Media set top box. Online Media was formed by Acorn Computers to exploit the TV STB market. The box is without a PSU and network card, but could be useful for spares.

Finally, wallace-krummel is selling a ViewFinder graphics card for the Risc PC range of computers. The card is currently at 150UKP with 15 bids and 4 days to go, and is likely to go for much more.

150UKP for a basic VF? I think you'd be rather better off getting one of JK's few remaining ones.
