Hi folks,

maybe some of you might be interested in one of my projects:

http://auctionwatch.metux.de/

It’s an auction search tool, which allows scanning for unlimited amount
of searches and filtering my blacklist and maxprices.

Currently supports just ebay, but others are also planned.

Greetings,

It’s a bit slow, at least for me, so I haven’t tried to do anything really with it. (This morning when this was posted, I wasn’t even getting a response from the server.) I’m also not a fan of services that require a login before showing you what they do, but it sounds good.

It sounds kind of like a hosted, German language AuctionSleuth, which is a good program as well.

Yeah… I checked the isp and did a back trace on it… its been blocked with “hide-Isp” so who knows who they are…
I DON’T recommend this link! Why click it and then not know who the hell has traced your ISP……..

My advice…. DON’T LOG INTO THIS SITE FOR ANY REASON!!!
NON ENGLISH Websites creeeeep me out….

Greetings,

Given that a very substantial number of my users are German, it makes sense to talk about it here.

And given that the user in question has contributed comments and talked about code on the forums, I’m not going to presume problems up front.

I’d be interested if any of the German users took a look, and checked it out. I’d love to know what they think.

Hi folks,

it’s right, the site tends to be a bit slow :(
The point is, it’s running on my home box, which is only connected via an German Telekom DSL
(so a bit latency and not very wide uplink), and it’s sometimes busy w/ remote backups.
From my girlfriend’s flat (where I’m sitting most the time), it works quite reasonable, but it might
be slower from another DSL link.

Well, for now it’s an just4fun project w/o budget.
Maybe, if it someday reaches some user base which brings some advert income or another maybe
donations, I’ll move it to an datacenter.

I’ve already did some efforts in reducing traffic, eg. by doing the table rendering via jscript,
but this doesn’t really solve the problem.

As already said, I’m planning an integration into JBW, so the JBW lust loads some compressed
“flat” text files from the webserver and does a few small http calls for actions (w/o xml bloat!).
Any help is appreciated :)
