then there are pallet loads of computing gear from Surface devices to lappies from Apple, Dell and Acer.
If only i had some spare money around for a pallet. Nice little earner on ebay.
The old saying "a fool and his money are soon parted" clearly doesn't spring to mind as bidding starts to simmer on the Misco car registration plate that went under the hammer last week. As El Reg revealed, Misco Group's private equity backer Hilco Capital launched an online sale following the collapse of the reseller in …
My thoughts too...closely followed by wondering if the owner of this plate is likely to have their car vandalized by some inaccurately-outraged Linux supporter thinking they are sticking it to the Man.
Plates can be weird things. Tobias Funke, you know what I'm talking about.
No, it's probably irony. Sarcasm usually implies an intent to wound by stating the opposite. Irony is just about expressing ( or recording the occurrence of ) the opposite to emphasis or make a point.. But I guess it's really a matter of opinion in this particular circumstance. Had it been made to an extant company it'd definitely have been sarcasm ("You're such a glamorous company").
However, there's room for opinion here.
These sales are always a sad reminder and a bargain hunt. Your best bet is to get the contract to clean the facility after the auction is over. You'll get paid for your efforts, plus you get your paws on all of the auction items that failed to sell (mostly shit, but some gems to be found) plus any auction items that "sold" but weren't retrieved in the allotted time slot (10AM - 3PM Tuesday after next, no power available, no loading dock available, oh, but we can suggest a rigger for hire).
Second best bet is to know said cleaner and arrange for subcontracting "disposal" of some of the items. Have had some good luck with serviceable production floor items in exchange for a nice bottle of the cleaner's favorite beverage. Liquidator is happy, the assets are disposed of. Creditor is happy, they now have an empty building that they can sell. Cleaner is happy, they saved on landfill fees. The greenies are happy, we've recycled something slated for disposal. We're happy, we saved having to buy new where used items will suffice.
Presumably this number plate would also be of value to anyone from Scotland who likes driving up and down the UK's major North-South motorway... except that the M1 doesn't actually get as far as the Scottish border.
Well, maybe for someone campaigning for it to be extended to Scotland, then?
