Geekhack Fundraiser Auction - Bro Caps V2 MX
« on: Fri, 10 July 2015, 15:54:40 »
As it was mentioned here, Geekhack servers now need money to run. We were fortunate enough to have free hosting until now. I'm auctioning two of my Bro Caps and will donate all of the money to Geekhack to keep the servers running and to Absyrd for his niece's fund.



Left is a Patriot Bro Bot V2. Right is a Toxic (from the first Toxic offering) Bro Bot V2.

Please consider bidding as it will all go to a good cause. Thanks!

Two things everyone:

1) If you are international, yes I will ship to you. But you are responsible for paying all associated costs. If I see that on Paypal I'll invoice them or contact them through eBay. Otherwise if I recognize the username, I'll PM them on Geekhack.

2) This already has raised much more money than I expected it would. I will now be splitting the funds between Geekhack and absyrd's fund for his niece.

Much respect to you for this CptBadAss.  I told myself I wouldn't pay more than retail for my first Bro and have been trying in the past 4 sales.  But I feel this is a good way to get my first bro and giveback to the community at the same time.  Will be watching the auctions closely.

I was thinking these caps would be a bit too expensive for me to bid on, especially with me being out of a job currently, but seeing the good it could do for GH member's family, I think I'll be placing some bids. 


Thank you CPT for donating the extra money.

Or you could just buy a T-shirt for a fraction of the price and I will contribute $5 of it to Geekhack.

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=73490.0
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

Just an FYI on what's going on with this in case anyone is wondering. I'm new to selling stuff on eBay. I've only ever sold two items before this auction. Because of this, eBay is holding my money until the Bots are delivered? So the transactions were completed but I don't actually have the money in my Paypal or bank account. I'm not actually sure when I get paid. Supposedly I may have to wait up to 21 days before the money is released to me? Anywho, the Bots should be delivered soon and hopefully I get paid soon.

Paypal did this to me too on my first sales. If you put the shipping information in paypal under the transaction, and then have the person who receives the cap go in and mark that they received it then you will get your money within a day or two of that.

One of the two sales cleared and I've donated to Geekhack. Waiting for the other sale to clear so I can donate to absyrd.

I finally got the last of the funds released to me. All parties have been donated to. Please feel free to contact them to confirm if you're so inclined. I'm going to lock the thread. :)
