This is the first time I have purchased anything from EBay USA, but since shipping in Canada costs 5x the price of the item due to the use of snow machine couriers, I decided to give it a go.
3 days after purchase, I get this funny warning...
We are writing to inform you that your GSP order is currently under review for potential prohibited items and may experience a delay of 3-5 business days.
Woah, I had no idea that a VIC was such a dangerous item!
But on further contemplation, I can see how it could be used to cause harm...
1) Connecting the VIC to an active nuclear power station to run the core cooling system and forgetting to pop the stack in your control code.
2) Thwarting national security by sending classified documents over a 150 baud connection using punter protocol.
3) Using the VIC as a daily computer to avoid the subliminal brain washing that is today's news.
4) Beating someone to death with the AC power transformer.
So I shall sit back and wait as the geniuses at EBay national border security examine my prohibited VIC2-20.
I think we need a National VIC Registry so they know we are going to be responsible VIC owners.
