Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed.

Does jBidwatcher store the HTML it parses when it detects the auction has ended?

If it did that, the resulting HTML could be valuable for debugging.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed.

My jBidwatcher just managed to snipe a different item.

Is there a way to have jBidwatcher write out the HTML it sees when something strange happens? (eg auction ended unexpectedly)

Strange failure.

This auction was supposed to end at May 30, 2016 , 4:23PM (16:23)

This is what I see in the log:

Mon May 30 16:00:30 PDT 2016: 172219498267 (Box of 20 Sony Lto5 Linear Tape Open 1.5tb LTX1500G) – Cancelling snipe, auction is reported as ended.

I wonder if jBidwatcher was confused by what eBay sent back at 16:00, since there is no evidence that the action ended earily.
