    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess Red wine, rose, white and port & Cava

    Clearly of more value since Fridays knees up :D

    Bid individualy or on the job lot.

    Auction ends Thursday 5th @ 19:00hrs......
     
  2. I will bid 15 on the white wine. I dont have a pound sign :-( or would used it.

  3. Then learning about the glories of the ASCII table is long overdue. Hold down the ALT key, type in 156, let go of the ALT key... and bingo! A Pound sign: £. You don't NEED a £ key, as long as you've got an ALT key, numbers keys, and know what the ASCII code is for the character you want - and you don't even need to know that, if you Google "ASCII table" and print out what you find. Not just the £ symbol, but dozens of others besides.
     
  4. £50 for the port please.

    Funny enough on a German keyboard it's Alt+0163

    Thank you for your bid, TPBD. :)

  9. WRONG: What keyboard you happen to have plugged in to the system makes absolutely NO difference. In fact, if you TELL your operating system that you've got a UK keyboard, then shift + 3 will give you a "£", regardless of whether the keyboard really is UK, US, German or Russian/cyrillic. I've been doing this as long as "IBM compatible" systems have been around, DOS ruled the world, and the function keys were found on the side of the keyboard, (rather than at the top as they are now.) But what OPERATING SYSTEM you've got might indeed make a difference.
     
  10. £60 for the lot.

    Ok, that is more precisely, BigRonW, no doubt about it. :)

    Thanks for all your bids, everyone. :thumleft:

    Jarrod, this doesn't top all other bids, so could you name bottle and bid, please ?

    So far it should be:

    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess red wine - £20 Poppy
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess rose wine -
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess white wine - £15 TPBD
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess Port - £50 rockpile
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess Cava - £20 rockape623
     
  12. Even though over £100 has already been bid?

    You really haven't quite got the hang of this auction malarky :)

    Happened to me before ... when you're answering / updating several threads at the same time. ;-)

    How about the £60 for the rose then, Jarrod ? :-D
     
  14. I was hoping nobody would notice. £110.
     
  15. YesItsMe

    It will be difficult, if someone wants to bid for a single bottle then.

    The only way I can think of would be like this:

    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess red wine - £21 Jarrod
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess rose wine - 1£ Jarrod
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess white wine - £16 Jarrod
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess Port - £51 Jarrod
    Irish Guards Sgts & WOs mess Cava - £21 Jarrod


    Is that ok with you, Jarrod ?
