Ah shame. We had a ship meet you know, so I could not be there to snag a bargain.

Never mind. I will send you some money anyhow.

A proposal - all losing bidders to donate half of their highest bid to the ship anyway as a matter of goodwill.

Anyone care to join me in this?

Well that was all very unexpected. I thought someone would be sure to come in and beat me to the punch [Paranoid]

I guess I'm now part of the ship's nouveau riche... I must remember to be vulgar and ostentatious at all possible opportunities [Cool]

Ah yes, I noticed that.

Well, actually I noticed the starred name first on the recent visitors list, and naturally investigated further.

Then I felt all smug about noticing. Then I realised that I read this earlier when going through the directory (as you do). So then I felt silly for not noticing then.

Gosh, this afternoon has been a roller coaster of emotion. [Biased]

Nice of them to let him have a low number eventually. I suppose that some day someone will change the links in "Who's What" to reflect this (and pease's shiny old number as well).

And I'd love to know what the reserve price would be on #5 if it ever came up.
