Re: "Space occupied" and other IRC announcements

Re: Pebble Watch Order

Ok.. I'm in too. Just a plain ol' black for me. Wow, they're up to $4.8million so far and 30 more days to go.

Who's going to do the actual order? This is going to be a big one so let's make sure whoever does it has as much of the money up front as possible.
