> I don't know why, but I've been reluctant to put it to use -- maybe it's the

> I'd like it to go to a good home. I'd also like it to help support the
> community a little more. So, I'm selling it, with all proceeds going to the
> list dad to help support IT costs.
> I'll donate the T-shirt and shipping (ground) to most places (cost under $20
> Cdn).
> This will be a silent auction. Highest bidder gets the T-shirt, and the

> Newtontalk.
> No bids under $20 US please.
> Bidding will end at noon, one week from today.

Great idea! Has there ever been a "Garage Sale/auction" event for the List
Dad? If not, it's good time to start one. I'll put something up for auction
FDS Auction: One (1) RARE Vintage Digital Ocean Tarpon Mouse Pad (Newton
Clone). The very same image that is silk screened on the mouse pad can be
seen here: http://www.normalkid.com/collector/tarpon.html

Condition: The item is in very good condition does show very slight usage
but is in excellent working condition! ;-)

Minimum Bid: $10.00

Auction End: Since , this has suddenly come about I'll set my auction to end
Sunday @ midnight Pacific time June 15th. on Father's Day.

Email me off-list with your bids! G'Luck and Happy Bidding!
