Well, y'know ....
I can't afford to buy replacement monitors right now. The video card in
my Windows crashes on a daily basis, and I can't afford to replace THAT
with a card capable of doing what it needs to. And my 90D10 has been
slowly dying for about the last three years, and I certainly can't
afford to replace *it*.
But, being as local as I am, if people wanted to go in on a group buy, I
would be prepared to handle picking them up from the seller and
arranging shipping of individual monitors out to buyers, in return for
one monitor out of the batch by way of an "agent fee".
