No kidding. For some reason it didnt show up in any of my Google Reader RSS feeds from Craigslist. I would have jumped all over it. I guess i dont have one that searches for Beer or Taps so thats why. Good find!

Gee.. . thanks... what a cool thing for you to do.
no, I emailed him as soon as I saw the post on the classifieds section. If I wanted to sabotage you i would have said that you were some kind of beer paraphernalia fetishist and that a taser was a smart accessory.

congrats on the buy!

I have a TON of RSS feeds from Craigslist that use beer, keg, kegs, tap, taps, CO2, etc. etc. I think it pretty much covers everything in my area.

what reader do you use for them? I've noticed sometimes I dont see the latest stuff in google reader for hours. Usually thats not a big deal but anything thats a really good deal goes really quick.

I use Google Reader, like you. Yeah, there's a delay of about an hour for me, I'd guess. Perhaps there are better alternatives but Google Reader just works well for me on my computer and phone so I haven't bothered looking elsewhere.

I was joking about talking him down. But... I would have just given him the $50. I think if he cared that much he would have done some research to find out what it was worth. I think giving him the $80 and telling him what he had was a kick in the nuts. Maybe now he is upset about selling it for so cheap. I think it is his own fault and you should not have felt guilty.

Uhh... no, I never told him how much it was worth.

I called the guy and asked if he still had all of the stuff and he said yes. I asked (to make sure I wasn't seeing things) if "the engines are included" and he had no idea what i was talking about. He simply said, "it is all of the taps in the picture".

I asked where he was and he was no where near either my office or my house so I kind of hesitated and said, "I just don't know how I'm going to get to you" and he said, "Give me $10 for gas and I'll drive them to you tonight". My reply was, "Hell... I'll give you $20"
So now I'm up to $70 for all of that stuff basically delivered to my house.

so the guy drove about 45... ehh... ok... maybe 35 minutes down to near my house. I grabbed $80 out of the ATM and when I met the guy, saw that everything was included and the two engines were in great shape AND the tower was as nice as it was... I just gave him the $80 and told him not to worry about it.

I did not actually sht my pants but came close. I couldn't believe it when I saw all of the stuff just sitting in his truck.
