    These are the prices we pay:
    So as long as people stay true to their word and follow through, we will pay $149. If we have abunch of liars among us and only 30 people pay for the thing in the end, we'll all have to pay $199 each. Personally, I don't think we'll have any problems. Although I think it's worrying to see people start backing out now.

    ya, with some of the people backing out it might be $169. so be it. I'd love the $149 price-tag though

    Even with a few drop outs we will still make the 60 mark. Should be fine!

    So, is there a page set up for this later? Or do we just buy it? I imagine Mr. Slate will make some announcement at some point today.

    Hey, I just moved to the states and I have this tiny problem that there is no internet access at the dorm yet, but they are getting it on Friday, but send me all the instructions to atenhunen at kolumbus dot fi and I'll deal with the payment asap when I get internet access.

    We'll have the group buy cart set up by tomorrow.. was hoping to have it by today but its a bit more complicated than we thought due to the authorize/capture procedure.

    Again, the initial hold will be for $249. Assuming no one wimps out, the card will be charged the final price, which is $149 if at least 60 people are in.

    I can't do anything on the ilok.

    If you are a member of this forum since at least January, email the list dictator and get yourself added ;)

    Lets do this quick before I get assasinated.

    It's already been discussed, and not any different than any other hold put on a card when you buy certain things. When you go to a gas station, they capture a certain amount of your card, but only charge you for what you buy...Same as a bar, and a variety of other places. It's a measure done to verify the funds are available from the bank, and from any person you buy from, it makes perfect sense.

    Assuming you have the room on your card (and/or overdraft protection on your bank account or card), this is a non issue as you will only be charged the price based on the number of buyers. This happens in some measures with a good percentage of transactions using credit or debit cards. Gas, hotels, bars, etc. The only difference in this scenarios is Slate is informing you ahead of time...Most places don't.

    So... According to this, the list is open again to those who have been a member of this forum since January? People already on the list (me) need not do anything but wait for Slate's page to go live?
