    Mr Cob,

    Another thought. Suppose Poolside sells 20,000 units of his gizmo, and it's me that has the crash causing the blind kids to die a firey death. IF the plaintiff's lawyer found out that they'd sold the gizmo to you for the same price as I'd paid for it, without requiring you to agree to the terms, with the exact language, he could argue that Poolside got no benefit for the limitiation of liability in his terms, since he was willing to sell the product to you for the same price without you agreeing to the terms. Therefore, that clause isn't an enforceable element of the contract since Poolside placed no value on it, therefore Poolside may be willing to assume liability for all of the parts that he's sold.

    While that's tenuous, it is something the plaintiff's lawyer could present, and the only way Poolside could counter that is to pay an attorney to defend the company.

    Guys, PLEASE don't drag up crap that shouldn't have been drug up in the first place.

    POOLSIDE! You rule. Your dedication to this product, and your honesty with the challenges you face in getting it made are refreshing. Keep up the good work! :clap:freaky

    Sometimes when I catch up on ADV, I don't realize that a series of posts has been over a couple of days.

    I just put up a screen shot in the GSpot thread not one minute ago. I'm working on a few things, fixtures and what not. I'll get some pictures up later.

    I'm interested (Read: I have money to give you for said product), let me know what you need me to do or just tell me I am SOL.

    Hey there folks.

    A little while ago JJ and I mentioned that two of these IICE Airs would be auctioned off. As you know, this great ADVrider site is free. What you may not know is that Baldy operates this site as a hobby! His volunteer efforts, and all the computer equipment, is supported solely by unsolicited donations.

    There's a long-standing tradition on this site of people who provide goods and services to the moto community to donate money, a portion of profits, or some other valuable contribution. This auction is our contribution.

    We'll be auctioning off 2 of these IICE Airs. There will be one auction, and the top 2 bidders each receive an IICE Air. All the proceeds will be donated to this site. That's 100% of the auction money, and we're throwing in the shipping.

    Place your bid in the Vendors thread. Bidders from US addresses only, no bids or shipments to other countries. The auction will last 3 days. It starts right now and will be over at 11pm EDT on Saturday. The bidding starts at $70.

    Bid right here in this thread. Good luck! And remember, all the proceeds will be donated to support this site!

    Thanks everyone. And thank you Baldy!

    Well, you already have my check... but in recognition of this site's involvement in the genesis and propagation of the cool new tools (Harmonizer, ICEE Air, etc.) I'll get a contribution off to Baldy.
