First of all, we really appreciate all of you for your donations and your bids! This has been a great auction so far because of all of you. And I think we are all aware of Blogger's giant fail last night through this morning. Because of the problems this caused, and because a lot of comments and all of the posts from Day 9 are still missing, we're going to put the auction on pause until Monday. We're hoping that over the weekend, the rest of the comments and the missing posts will come back up.
So any bids from today and any placed over the weekend will be deleted for fairness and to minimize confusion, but as soon as Monday hits, you can start bidding again. Day 7 auctions will close Monday at 10:00 PM Central time rather than tonight.
We are so sorry because we know this is a little inconvenient, but we are hoping that this solution will end up creating less work and confusion for everyone.
