Picks 03/21-23/2014
« on: March 23, 2014, 02:32:55 PM »
Didn't do to bad this weekend.
Mostly grind-it-out stuff.  Not huge profit but a lot of it for cheap.

Got 50 backpack replacement clasps for $12.50.   Retail at $3.99/ea.  will throw them up on ebay for a while but think they are going to swap meet and sell the lot to someone.

Nice little copper double boiler for $5.  Not name brand but will CL for $40 and see what happens.  Thinking an offer of $20-$25 is good.  Really thin copper but most people just want the ceramic insert anyway.

Competing into spring I grabbed the hiking packs and tents. Five of each for $5/ea.  All name brand, cheapest pack was $150 new.  Really good condition.  Figure $25-75 each.  One REI tent was brand new and sells for $200.  Might just return it for a gift card.


Got two drill presses.  Those little ones that sell at Home Depot for $75.  Paid $5.

Starting to see a trend here?    Yeah.  Pretty much everything was marked to sell.  Five bucks got most everything left.  It was a feeding frenzy!  lol

Then just a bunch of misc. stuff.  Like packaged rope and fishing line and what not.  Stuff was like 10cents/ea.  I will try to sell but if not they are all things I'll use at some point or give to friends.

Also got myself a counter top griddle (yep, $5) Now I can make more than one pancake at a time.....

I basically filled my entire trunk for under $100 and I'll make that back on just the one tent.

Forgot to add....

Got a bunch of old school thermos's.   Nissan, Tiger.....
They were .25 cents so took the risk.   I see them *listed* at upwards of $75 for some but not many selling.

Can anyone direct me towards a resource to tell which sell for what?  They all look the same to me.
I figure I can get a few bucks each or sell the lot to a swap meet guy but would like to know if one is a bigger ticket item.....

It would seem the answer to your question would be: No.

New laptop.  Windows8.   It says my camera is an unsupported format for windows. 
Its AVI.  Should be plug-n-play but keeps sending me to xbox video player.....which plays AVI too sooooo.....hmmm.

Did the same thing when I loaded my video editor.  Pretty much anything I load that isn't MS made or licensed it says it's not supported and I have to go thru a bunch of BS to get it to work.

Can I post pictures from an ipad?    I couldn't in the past but haven't tried in.....years?

I don't know, Alias. I'll do some test photos on my tablet and reply back today. It might be more this type of forum. I am use to working on Vbulletin.

Cool.  Would be easier.

No clue why my laptop thinks all my pictures are a video.  But I video'd a presentation and went to edit it and it won't let me view that either except thru the video editor.  I saved it to a CD and it works just fine on other computers.....

 I'm missing a setting somewhere.

Alias300 - I converted my Kindle to an Android just yesterday and now I'm completely confused how to use this tablet. But I just re-read your post. You're using a new laptop with Windows 8.

Did you download:

SkyDrive - to store your photos
OneDrive - to share your photos

Try OneDrive and see if that works.

Sounds like your video editor changed your computer settings to be the default application for all media types. Try right clicking on the photo and go to open with and select a different program, also make sure to check the box to make it the default app for all files of that type. Alternatively right click on the photo and go to properties. There should be a section to change what the default program that opens it is. I have not used Windows 8 yet, so I am not sure if they cjhanged the process, but that is what you would do in previous versions of windows.
