    John added up the cost of just the hardware so I set that as a starting point. I will go revise it to 1k

    Starting price is 1k - I am covering shipping. I set it to the maximum 10 days possible.

    I will be at a LAN party tonight to tomorrow night so I will not be monitoring the auction as closely.

    You do whatever you want... I know it's worth well over that, I just wasn't expecting the $2,500, out of the gate, that's all. :)

    Just realized my launcher never made it into any of the images. Here is an image if you wan't to add it in (If you don't want to it's fine, I know it won't fit everyone's taste), do mention that it's customize-able so they don't think they are stuck with those programs and icons.

    [​IMG]

    (though a full desktop screenshot would be better advertising, shows scale better and mitigates the pixelation)

    Posting the link on face book right now.

    @Darth, when you have chance, please tell Gigabyte and any other affiliates to please share the Auction link through their social media channels! :thumb:


    I'll message Richi to do the same...

    - off to continue spreading the word!

    Yougotkicked and Mayhems need to be added to the sponsor list on first post.

    Stuff was coming in faster than we could keep up with it.

    The PC is going to a LAN party this weekend for more exposure.

    I had to check the eBay post 3 times before I was sure, all's-well that ends well.

    How many other projects can say they have so many contributors they loose track sometimes :thumb:

    sorry the auction does not look slicker but the ebay interface leaves something to be desired if only we could mod it

    Small typo in the eBay post, "Rainmeter" not "Rainmaker"

    Just posted link on my DA page, felt weird since I only have one follower. Hopefully I'll get some views through people checking my profile after looking at one of my skins.

    @Bill: this should do it;
    "Custom application launcher made by yougotkicked based on the rainmeter platform - YGKtech"

    I don't have a facebook page for my projects yet, I just have a normal social account. I use DA for all my projects at the moment, a website and FB page might come over the summer, when I have time.

    I will check back here and there as I can . . .

    if anyone is in the Bay Area I will be at the Maker Faire in a week, I would take this build but it should be sold by then. Stop by as I will be doing some modding demos such as sleeving and such.
