After careful consideration, I have decided to postpone the Auction+Sales event until Dec 2012 / Jan 2013. With 'Hurricane Sandy' wrecking havoc in the U.S., this seemed like such a "small" happenstance in comparison.
All "auctions" will halt at this time, with no bids to be taken, but sales of items related to the event will continue forth, with the funds set aside specifically for this event, until it is re-launched at a later date.
Thank you all for your support, and hope that same support will continue forth in 2013.
Best wishes to my friends in the U.S. affected. Stay dry. Stay safe.
