... I should have bid on the ebay one ;)

The $150 would be total budget for something (including shipping) 
that you've personally tested works with the python code I'm currently
running on a desktop that uploads to http://emoncms.org.

For something that has working wifi, and a USB-serial dongle that 
you have *tested*, that's in the $100 USD neighborhood.

I'd say $50-$75 for a GTA02 without USB-serial, but working wifi.
