I agree Jay. Maybe the AC would be a better way... I seem to remember that

Hey Jay, it takes alot more than that to offend me! I will try to get a
more up to date listing completed this evening and post to the whole list...
after that, I will keep only bidders (oand others that express an interest)
up to speed on the bids (easy to do with an email group function)... but I
probably will post a status to the whole list once or twice... hey there's
only a couple of weeks til the convention and therefore the auction anyway.
