Hours, Not Days

A scant (scant I tell you!) 22 or so hours remain in the PowerBook auction. We’ve still just got the one bid but I’ve talked with some interested parties off-auction who may be waiting until the last minute to bid. So we’ll see what happens there.

Working with eBay for the first time has been an interesting learning experience. Keeping track of the auction, making as many payment methods available as possible, learning about reputation building, responding to parties who make requests over email, it’s all very time consuming.

But fun in a way.

[Update: We’re up to four bids. Nick is now offering his services as a financial advisor.]

[Status: With less than 15 min we’re now at 7 bids! =-)]

[Sold: For $1050.00. Hooray!]

i am sticking with my estimate! watch the last hour - i maintain that the cost will rise!

Nick Runco

who predicted it. nick. that’s right. i did. my predictions are coming true, slowly, but ever so surely - asserting my accuracy a mere 15 minutes before the bidding war began. i should been a financial analyst.

Nick Runco
