He just watchs..

I do not know what I changed, or what has happened, but the time to snipe comes and he does not do anything..

The items on ebay are sold for less, than my bid, my settings are 10 seconds to snipe (what should be enough, because before that the settigs were on 3 seconds and I won nearly all auctions..)

I do not know, what to change or what to try..may be somebody knows?

THANKS!!

Happened to me last night. I’m trying to find out why. We both need to find out where the log is and hopefully that will at leat give us a clue

Ok. I am not the best computer guy in the world, but I hope this helps

How to find where the error files are on your pc
Open JBid
File
Configure
Paths
That will show you where the files are
Go to that folder
I think the relevant file for me is errors.28.log
Lots of code that means little to me]Maybe the key is
“Fri Mar 20 18:54:26 GMT 2009: Can’t get row (id = ‘410071’).
No current connection.
java.sql.SQLNonTransientConnectionException: No current connection.
at org.apache.derby.impl.jdbc.SQLExceptionFactory40.getSQLException(Unknown Source)”

So it looks like I didn’t have a connection, or JBid thinks I didn’t

Hope your error log lets you know too

I had this problem too. All I did was upgrade to a new version and it went away. They seem to be fixing bugs every few weeks so there is often a fix available in the next version….

I’m still getting this issue, and it’s really pissing me off. . . I had three snipes tonight, the first two fired fine, the third — didn’t do anything.

Here are the logs. . . I know it says ’couldn’t sign in’, but it’s been signed in all night, and the sign in thing at the top of the screen was green and showed my user name. . .

I certainly no longer feel as though I can count on jbid to actually snipe for me, which is incredibly frustrating, it’s failing about every 3-4 snipes. . .

I’m posting here because no one responded to the post I made before. . .

Greetings,
@webjon – Upgrade to 2.0.1 if you haven’t already, and turn off the ‘I plan to watch and bid on Mature Audiences items on ebay.com’ checkbox in the eBay configuration tab of JBidwatcher.

Mature audiences logins make the whole flow lots more complex; it’s why I clarified the checkbox even more in 2.0.1 and changed the configuration key for it, so users settings didn’t carry over from previous versions.

Knock on wood. . . I’ve been able to resolve most of my issues by updating to the latest version of Java.

I also did go back to 2.0.1. . .

So the combination of 2.0.1 and the latest Java seem to be much better. . .
