Can we get an indication of about how many bids have come in? Or how many people have bid?

Is that 0 or 0 factorial (1)? I bet it's the latter.

Bingo! That's how I (roughly) got that. My local kWh is about ~$0.17 in average (bit more or less depending on qty). So the offer still stands...

Maybe Mike has already PM'ed the highest bidder and is waiting for verified payment to arrive. Or just a return PM.

Maybe no bids met the minimum/reserve.

We apologize for the delay. Our everyday computer (NUC) developed a bad memory stick so we have been dealing with that all day. (Looking back, we should have tested the memory first!)

We have notified the winning bidder. We figure it is their choice to reveal what they bid. We can say that the winning bid was less than $100 which is about where we thought it would end up.

We will post a follow-up reply to let you all know which entity the winning bidder chose to donate to.

Thanks for participating!

Was it equal to or more than $50? Just trying to see which poll option won.
