Subject: Auction Closing Rules
From: gnu
Date: 06 Mar 01 - 03:08 PM

When the auction has one day left, when does it end ? that day or the next day ? When it is the last day, when does it end ? midnight ? I sure hope it's not midnight because that's 0100AST where I am, and I go by the old adage, "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man wonder who won the game."

Okay, I got two belives on the hour of closing and zero on the day of closing. Any more bids ? You in the back with the sly grin, you know don't you ? Your going to outbid me at the last minute, knowing that I haven't got the stamina to stay up that late, eh ? Well, I'll show you? I'm going to.......sleep....ahhhhh....

Actually gnu, we do need some sort of plan on who notifies whom, how payment is handled, notification of shipment. There is some confusion.

I like confusion. It's part of my day. Some days, it's all day. As for the hour, it IS the www, so I hope I didn't seem selfish when I weened about staying up until Zero One Dark Hundred Hours. Anyway, I'd just like to know the rules. I asked Max, but he was uncertain as well. Who's Captain of this ship ? We should ask her to set the standing orders AHEC.

Hey gnu, why don't you just put in a huge bid and maybe, even if the auction is officially over it might be too tempting to refuse.

Sarah2....Well, seeing as how I'm down about too many thousands so far in this first of the next thousand years, probably nothing, unless I can stay up all night and squeak by, although I don't hold out much hope for that. With my luck, I'll have another day like today - I awoke to the gentle tweet, tweet, tweet of the garbage collection truck's brakes at 0316h and couldn't stop thinking about work. Had two pots of tea gone before bfast. Tonight's an early night.... DRAT !!! I have to stay up tonight. Tradition, you know. This is Gnu 'Eve. The beast is 44 years old tomorrow. Not quite as wild as years gone by, but still a gnu. Can't break tradition !

I just looked at the auction and I see that time is shown for one of the items as closing "tonight". But we still don't know the time....eh ? Sarah2 ?

bert... I am not understanding. If I put in a winning bid before it's over, I win. If I put in a winning bid after it's over, I lose. I have dealt with tenders for years and the last thing I would do is try to buy something after the tender had closed. It's not only wrong, wit' the girls I goes wit', you could lose your youknows, an' I needs me unos.

Of all the people who would know that, it is I. I'm about as silly as they come. I was just being silly also. It's the American beer talking...well, it's an American name, brewed in Canada, so, by law of the marketplace, it must have at least an eqivalent amount of spirit. Birthdays can be troublesome, if you let them.

gnu, I just checked the auction, and did not see a bid from you on the item that is ending tonight? Since the auction is "dated" through Mudcat, I am willing to bet the auction ends at Midnight, Mudcat time, which is Eastern Time, USA. When Mudcat's clock clicks to Midnight, I'll bet the auction automatically closes.

gnu,

Happy Birthday! You spring chicken you. I was also wondering about the magic hour of midnite being the cutoff point fot bids since I am bidding on three items in the auction. Is midnight here in EST the cutoff or midnight in the UK? or Australia? or India? Max please let us know. gnu, the best years of your life you haven't even lived yet.

Although, in the interest of fair play and gentlemanship, I will say that I am not bidding tonight.

See ya, and raise you one. Mudcat is based in Pennsylvania, US, so Midnight means EST (or EDT as the case may soon be.......)And by the way, Max is not only Captain of the Ship, He is the Emperor of the World.

I am surprised Max said he didn't know. I am sure it is MIDNIGHT MUDCAT TIME, which, as Sorcha said, is Eastern Daylight or Standard Time, whichever the hell one we are on according to the idiocy of the government, unless you live in Arizona, of course.:-)So...gnu, maybe get yerself a proxy bidder to stay up? And,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Thanks kat. I guess we'll just have to assume it's midnight USEST/USEDST. Unless Max is bidding and he's really keen to use every trick in the book to up the ante. What sayest thou, Max ?

Thank you Jon Freeman. The standing orders are understood by the crew of good ship Mudcat. All hands on deck. Prepare for battle ! God bless all who join the bloody fray. Don't bid 'til you see the greens of their wallets.

I'll be your proxy bidder gnu. I promise I won't go over your weekly salary for each bid. I'm really aggressive when it come s to getting something at an auction, especially a Mudcat auction.

Sleep tight, your in good hands gnu,

No problem wdyat12. Just as long as we NB'er's get the same deal from you as we ( used to get ) get at Stacy's. See 'ya !! For Catters unfamiliar, Stacy's, a h/motel in Maine, used to take Canadian money at par. Exchange where I bought my Canadian American beer today is fifty-one percent. I could put in one of those wild bids at those rates !

Kat, don't you know that Indiana is also exempt from (that particular) idiocy of the government?
