Ahhhh, crap.  I didn't catch that.  



It doesn't really bother me, I guess.  But what do the rest of you think?

We should probably adjust it.  Just take whichever bid was place 2nd chronolgially and move it either up if its higher or down if it is lower out to the $25.00 bid margin. :)

I concur. You could ask the second bid to rebid?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

I'll motion a third for it. I think I'm one of those, so if I was the latter of the bids I'm cool with having to adjust it.

$780.



You can eliminate my estimate because I got in so late.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Babydragon stepped in on me, but I'm cool with whatever way you want to adjust it.

So you really do like american football, although that would probably get you at least a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. :lol:

Al is a Jets fan, if I recall correctly.  And by the way, I'm going to the Jets - Raiders game this weekend!

Umm...I don't actually care, but Ethesis is too close to me as well. ;)  Either he can change his or I'll change mine to 1225...maybe we should enforce precise $25 increments in the future.  But then my random number generator might break.  :)

Since deimos was first, we'll have to bump Ethesis up to $1259.

I noticed my $780 did not make the list. Does that mean I'm on the outside looking in? 8O

Since I can't move $25 up or down from mine without bumping someone, I'll go in at $1025.00  I should be far enough away there.  :D

Bets were supposed to be in by midnight EST last Sunday.  But I'd be happy to let you in if none of the other bettors disagrees.  



What do you guys think?
