One item closer to my Tesla – Second item traded!

4 01 2011

Well folks – I did it. I finally traded my Talkswitch!

A computer shop owner by the name of Eric Bérubé in Embrun heard my interview on CBC radio. He decided to help me out by trading a used computer for the Talkswitch. Thank you to Eric and the whole “The Computer Doctor” crew for getting me out of this jam.

In terms of monetary value – I think I’m breaking even. It definitely was not a huge tradeup like I expected but a trade none the less. It will generate a lot more interest on the used websites than a telephone system.

Here are a few pictures of the trade that took place:

Expect to see the computer specs and listing information on this blog starting late tomorrow.

Listen to my CBC interview now!

Hi Everyone,

CBC was kind enough to send me the mp3 of the interview and here it is!

Please bare in mind that this interview was taken at 6:45 in the morning and I didn’t have my first cup of Joe. Not to mention that this was my first interview ever! I was so nervous that my hands were shaking throughout the interview!

Did I mention it was LIVE??

Interview completed! Thanks to everyone that listened in!

My interview on CBC Ottawa Morning went really well – thanks to everyone who listened in! I was so nervous, my hands were shaking after the interview was done. But everyone at CBC and who listened in told me I did pretty well.

I setup my computer to record the interview but of course – it didn’t work. All my computer recorded was dead air! So I sent an email to CBC to get a copy of the recording. Hopefully I can post the whole interview on here.

The good news is; because of this interview, someone contacted me for a trade opportunity! I’m still working on the details but I will post all the info when the trade happens.

Stay tuned….
