Running Windows 7, on ebay.co.uk, I had snipes on v2.99, and they apparently never fired.

I checked it out manually, and found that, when the call to set up the snipe came at the 2 minute point, the system failed to connect and I was logged out of ebay. If I reconnected, the snipes would then fire – there was no network problem.

Checking later, I found that my time sync was well adrift – it looked like 14 seconds! When I re-synched the time, the connect failure problem disappeared. But I wonder why the system seemed to work when I booted Jbid, but failed when a snipe came up…?
