That's a pretty lame excuse. In fact, this is probably the lamest bunch of excuses I have ever heard.
This lovely Terak system and the four boxes of floppies only had one bidder (IIRC), so it was probably picked up for $20 or something (wild guess, anyone have the URL for the original auction ?). Other rare and wanted items have been picked up for a lot less.
All you need to do is keep your eyes open at car boot sales, flea markets, charity stores, eBay, etc, and there's no telling what you might be able to save for a few dollars.
