    Dang.....I had no idea what to expect, even though my idea was the sky is the limit, but profit's profit.

    I had to keep my hand away from the mouse to prevent a twitch from getting me into real trouble.

    Congrats guys!

    It's hard to know if a restoration is going to pay off I guess, whether it's houses, cars, or shoes.

    Not sure if you're serious, but I know not everyone's a pro at SF. I was courteous and gave him instructions on how to go about advertising. Edited to add: I may have misunderstood "non-thread rage." I couldn't exactly tell if you were being genuine or not.
    I was off by $1000. It's still a great sale and you can be happy with that. Sometimes, as you know, that's how they go! I've definitely struck out on a few that I felt should have gone higher than they did. Congratulations anyway, it is still a great sale and was a great find!

    I initially paid $50 and we split it, so really I paid $25 so I'm definitely content with the results.

    Yeah I was being serious. More or less thanking the thread for keeping calm and carrying on in this episode.

    Sorry, Nat - I thought they would have got more too, but I cant complain. Ian, thats pretty much on par for what I thought on the first two.

    Any profit is good profit, I always say... but the kick in the nuts is that I got a message from a buyer saying his computer spazzed and his bid didnt go in :fu:
