    How long to wait until reporting ebay fraud?

    I bought this psp on ebay:

    I jumped on it because the price was so low, obviously a little hastily. I've never had a problem on ebay before, but I've sent this guy three emails now and he hasn't responded. I payed for it late Thursday night, it's now late Sunday night, and I haven't heard anything, and the ebay page doesn't show it's been shipped. I was going to wait a few more days then I guess report it to Paypal as 'Item not sent'. Has anyone out there had luck getting money back after fraud auctions? Should I just wait? It looks like he's new to selling (only sold one thing before), maybe he's just dumb and doesn't respond to emails. :(

    DS Lite Case Mod


    I know case replacements aren't that new, but I like how this one turned out. Last picture next to my new Asus EEE 900 just for fun. It came with a broken white keyboard ('a' key is missing and constantly pressed), but a new black one is on it's way.

    I just found out my ISP has free newsgroup access. I used to pay for it, decided it wasn't worth it, but if it's free then bring it on! Anyone else have Cox Communications? I'm in Southern California, wondering when they'll cap my downloads. :D First test is Fallout 3 for PC, 10+ GB with pars.

    Just deleted 9.1GB of roms

    That felt pretty good, getting rid of the crap ds games that I've downloaded for no reason, don't play anymore because I beat them, or just don't like at all. Zips were only about 4.4GB, and I didn't bother counting how many, but I ended up with 38 games left that I either own (8) or really want to finish. Here's my list, but I'm not sure I'm going to keep Mortal Kombat (didn't even remember it was there, so I have to try it out.. would rather have street fighter) and the Phoenix Wright games x4. I played the first one, never cared about the others, but figured I'd give it another shot because they're fun.

    I'm also about to toss all but maybe three my Wii discs, but that feels so much more wasteful. What can I do with ~40 garbage dvds?

    Why? Cleaning house I guess. I want to focus on the games that I actually want to play through, instead of wasting so much time just scrolling the list and deciding what to play. Also a little guilt. :D
