I set server to ebay.de (GMT +100) in the configuration of jbidwatcher and get:

Tue Sep 18 15:39:31 GMT+01:00 2012: JBidwatcher 2.5.2-0-g8e3723d (this looks correct)
Tue Sep 18 15:39:38 GMT+01:00 2012: Time delta with ebay.com is -25151871 (why telling me that?)
Tue Sep 18 15:39:39 GMT+01:00 2012: Time delta with ebay.co.uk is -25152494 (why telling me that?)

On jbidwatcher frontend clock I read the time GMT-600 (08:39 following the example above).
But i always use the german account and server (GMT+100). I miss some snipes due to this problem.
The log file will show:

Auction 312312121212 appears to have been removed from the site.

It happens because the auction was ended and jbidwatcher did not realize that
because it is using GMT-600. It is also adding 7h to “Time left”, as shown at
the frontend. How to force jbidwatcher use german time server?

thx for any help!

Hi, Sounds like your Ubuntu timeserver is set to the wrong timezone and that you are on PDT not UTC. I suggest you check and make sure that your county and city are correct with Ubuntu.
