So, it seems that (so far) I’m not getting those login problems everyone else is.

That’s not to say jbidwatcher has been running without a fault. For the past month or two, every time it says “unknown error” when it snipes, and yet the snipe goes through. I figured I’d just ignore that message and carry on sniping.

My last successful snipe was on October 28th. Today I lost an auction because jbidwatcher didn’t snipe. The error log says

Communications failure talking to the server.
Failed to load from server!
Preparing snipe.
Firing actual snipe.
Unknown error sniping on *

Now, this unknown error happens in every auction (even though the snipe works), but the

“Communications failure talking to the server. Failed to load from server!”

bit has never occurred before.

I’m worried now, what if this is some new ebay trickery. I’m scared of using jbidwatcher for my next snipe, don’t want to stupidly lose another auction. :/

Anyone else get this?
