Here's your chance to own the Official ehMac iMac and to support ehMac!

This special iMac is being put up for auction on eBay.ca. To participate, please follow the instructions below:

1. Click Here for eBay.ca!
If you haven't registered with eBay before, please then do so. This earns ehMac a few $.

2. Do a search for "ehMac iMac". This will take you to the auction where bidding starts at just $1!!! Let's see who's the biggest ehMac fan!

3. Bid away! That's it!

The auction will go on for one week. Its a really special iMac! Comes in Canadian Red with brand new ICE keyboard and mouse! Plus some fun bonuses.

Should be exciting as the bidding gets heated. If you have any questions, ask away as there are lots of experienced eBayers on ehMac.

If you prefer, you can also donate money via PayPal: <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"><input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick"><input type="hidden" name="business" value="[email protected]"><input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="ehMax On Wheels Fund"><input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1"><input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="CAD"><input type="hidden" name="tax" value="0"><input type="image" src="http://www.ehmac.com/ubb/donate.jpg" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!">
</form>

What is this money going to? Well...
I still have money put aside to upgrade the software on ehMac. This will be happening soon. (I'm waiting for Infopop to come up with one more update and then for the free time to do it)

This money is actually in support of me the Mayor and a special purchase I hope to be making soon. Here's the background sob story...

I used to be really in shape. Was even the Athlete of the Year in my senior year. After 10 years of marriage, 3 kids and a lot of time on my Mac, I've developed some serious Molson Muscle. I need to get in shape.

So... I've decided to get a mountain bike. I'm going to be buying one from a Canadian company in Vancouver! The Rocky Mountain Elevation bike.



Decent bikes aren't too cheap, so I could really use the financial help. When I get good enough, I'd actually like to get into racing so I will proudly put an ehMac sticker on the bike and ehMac will be my official sponsor! :D

(I'll be sure to post before and after pictures of my Molson Muscle as well)


Thanks to everyone for your help!

I have the distinction of being the first bidder on the Powerbook and the iMac.
After the auction will you tell us the surprise, that mounted Os9 display is pretty nice as it is, it would look pretty cool in my museum of neat and strange stuff.
I hope it helps to raise lots of dough for you and ehMac

Hey, we've got our first bid already at $1!!! Do I hear $5! :D

Item # is 3410400704. But when you go to eBay.ca, please use the link at the top. This link will give ehMac a few bucks as well when you register or win an auction.

Please keep in mind, the winning bidder does buy the iMac! :cool:

$5.00 just ain't going to cut it, me thinks minnes has put a little hedge bid in. Might be time to flash up the PC and use the old Cricket Jr sniper. :D :D

ehMax,

That bike's one heck of a good choice -- glad you found the right one amonst a pool of choices. :D One last thought on the bike -- if you get it with the pictured fork: You probably know/have found out already, that the air fork will require a special fine-tunable pump. Don't know/think it's included. How much is the bike gonna set you back in cash -- get a good deal? What it cost won't even matter after awhile -- health.

Have fun!

MacSpectrum is leading the pack presently. The race is on!!!

I put it a bid but MacSpectrum's highest bid is too rich for my blood. . . for now. ;)

Wow, after getting a bit of sleep last night, I wake up to 11 bids and we're up to $202! That's awesome.

Hey Tomac... Yeah, I really like the bike! I didn't know about the air-pump thing. Hope that's not too exensive. That bike is $1369 Cdn before things like helmet etc... I haven't haggled on price but since I've been bothering the folks at the bike shop so much I don't think I will haggle too much. Just as long as they throw something in to make me feel warm and fuzzy.


Should be fun next Sunday, I'm going to watch a cross country bike race.

Hey Minnes, I was just in Hamilton yesterday for the big run that they had. I didn't run, but I watched my two sisters run. Really neat to see so many runners! I said to myself that next year I'm going to do the 30k. (I plan to be in great shape after all the biking I'm going to do)

Don't forget ehmax, a good pump for that air fork will run you back between $100-$150. But look out for deals and the local bike shops, you can usually get them on sale, but they still ain't cheap!!

Just thought I would raise the bar a bit. After all, it is for a good cause. The future health of our mayor. Well, physical health anyways. :D

I'm glad to see the bidding at a level that is more appropriate for this type of item and cause.
