Communication mismatch  
Dealing with Mr. koto man has driven home the whole commincation mismatch thing. I want information. I want to know when and where he is on the whole koto sale thing. Does he have a date for coming home, did the sale in Montreal go through (he never told me he was in montreal, I got that by searching for other koto sales on the web.) He said last Friday:

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I have someone asking about the koto around here, but they haven't bought yet. I should be heading to Boston within the next week, I'll let you know what happens.

Should I email him today asking if he has a Boston return date now? Or is that too early, since the week isn't out?

I hate pestering people, but I also hate loosing an oppertunity because they just forgot about meor they otherwise lamed out. (I lost a job at irobot because of that.)

Feh. Also, I can't help but feel strung along or scammed. But who would scam on a koto? You scam on popular items. He's been saying, "one more week" for over a month now.

I'm still very torn too. I very much want the koto, but it's so large, I'm telling myself I shouldn't be sad if I loose it. Wonder if that will work.

I don't have a problem re-pinging people. How much time I let elapse depends a lot on context. For something like this, I'd wait 7 days before re-pinging.
