Ladies and gentlemen, this is Lot 14 and number 999. A number just crying out for a good home. Let's start the bidding at $10. Would someone like to start us off?
 
Posted by Pânts (# 4487) on :
 
Just cos no one else has yet, I'll do the $10 one!
 
Posted by dolphy (# 862) on :
 
In that case, I raise the bid to $15

Pânts and Jillyb are quietly nudging each other higher on this still very affordable number from the early days of the Ship's software. Will they keep matching each other dollar for dollar, or will someone swoop in, up the ante, and make them wish they could dial 999 for help?

$62

(I really should look at those exchange rates to see what I'm bidding before I go much further.)
 
Posted by Auctioneer (# 12) on :
 
The Almighty Dollar is unfortunately not Monopoly money, though with the current exchange rates it's getting close.

Step right up, folks, this number hasn't budged in over 24 hours. You get a cool member number, the Ship gets operating funds, and everybody wins.
