Eventually they may wise up. I had a guy selling a group of 4 DEC drives,
asking for somewhat over the going rate. I pointed the guy at a prior 'open
bidding' sale for one, demonstrating the 'fair market value', and offered him
4 times that, plus shipping. He comes back with a much higher number. So I
waited a year, they were still there, now he was more willing to be reasonable.
So I suggest waiting for a couple more months and write him a 'I see it's
been X months, my offer of Y is still open' note.
