“Good News Regarding the Auctions”

Enclosures: None.

There was a flurry of "sniper" activity on the Web Developer's Paradise auction today, all in the last four seconds before bidding ended. Clearly, a few people wanted that software.

One of the losing bidders wrote to ask if I'd sell another copy just like it for approximately the same price, or even for a little more with a a license to Yojimbo.

In the end, this worked out great for both of us. She bought almost $1,100 worth of software for just $240, and I didn't have to run another auction! Plus, she paid for it by making a doantion directly to the PMC. That means they get *all* the money: eBay, PayPal, and MissionFish don't get to siphon off their percentages.

This isn't a violation of eBay's rules because the bundle she bought was never up for auction in the first place (so we weren't completing our transaction "out of bounds," so to speak). The bundle that was auctioned on eBay was paid for through PayPal, just like all the others.

Good deal all around.

Oh, and I'm sorry that there haven't been any new auctions in a few days. That'll be remedied shortly.
