Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Hope you're OK Morgan!

Morgan has not posted anything on the fora since Feb 15, 2019. He IS active on https://twitter.com/cyberfox though which suggests he’s still alive at least. I would assume he’s moved on to bigger and better paying projects.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Hope you're OK Morgan!

I have been using jbid watcher for years, and it’s been absolutely great. I have won MANY MANY auctions using it. It’s worked so well I almost feel guilty (for the other bidders) using….almost. Now that I’m having to look for an alternative, I see how awesome jbid really is. Most importantly, I hope you’re ok Morgan, and if you are, or when you are, please look into the log in issue.

Cheers,
Jeff

It seems to be dead. I hope that Morgan is OK.

I am using BOM now….. but it would have been nice if the project had been officially closed with a message on the forums :(

Is this project still alive? It would be nice if someone would comment on it!

I wish I know how to code, then I don’t mind spending a couple of hours at night when I’m not too busy and eventually I might get it working right (again).

Yeah, eBay has hundred of programmers constantly making changes everyday. Oh well….

Oops, my bad. I just noticed it says, “Not logged in…” in the upper-right corner. So those snipes obviously aren’t going to work.

Here’s an excerpt from the log:

jBidWatcher might be working for me.

It had been a few months since I used jBidWatcher, and today when I tried to add an auction number to jBidWatcher, it reported an error (in the status line at the bottom of the screen), which I’ve now forgotten. I do recall that the error message said the problem was “either” something, but only told of one possibility. I interpreted it to mean that it wasn’t communicating with eBay.

So I tried a few times to “Refresh eBay Session” but each time it showed (in the status line at the bottom of the screen):
“Did not successfully retrieve the sign in cookie for ebay.com”

But then I tried again to add an auction number, and it worked!

It’s not perfect. When I right-clicked and set shipping it displayed a message which said, in part, “Or you could buy it now, for $1.00. Note: To ‘Buy Now’ through this program, select ‘Buy’ from the context menu.” That’s wrong, because this auction has no buy-it-now option.

I don’t know for sure that it’ll successfully snipe, but it appears that it might.

For what it’s worth, I currently have “Java 8 Update 241” and “Java 8 Update 241 (64-bit)” installed (both by Oracle). There are a several other Java runtime options (see Ninite.com), but I don’t know whether that makes a difference.

Hi Everyone — a few years back I downloaded the jbidwatcher source code looking to fix a relatively minor problem. I could not get it to build because there were some files missing from the source distribution. At this point in time I would have to say jbidwatcher is pretty much dead. Really a shame.

Oh I am sure it’s an update on eBay, but that’s not unexpected, I mean what was the last software revision to JBW, over a year ago? Things change.

Will likely use Gixen and keep JBW just for tracking the auctions I win with a thumbnail. Until adding auctions doesn’t work, then, we’ll just ditch it altogether. Thanks for the memories JBW, we sure did snipe alot of stuff together…

I tried to read the error log, and it all points to eBay
If no one will help modifying the code (this code is available to those who knows how to do coding), the it’s a lost cost.

So, it’s not worth it. We will just BIN or Amazon. Too bad, I bid on other auctions, and there’s no tools to help like JBW before for eBay and I actually don’t enjoy those auctions. Now, time to move on.

BTW – I did try JBW on Mac OS X 15.2 and it will not login.

I used to send a few bucks after each major release, but that of course died ages ago… but who knows, is it just a couple dozen people still using JBW? If so, that hardly is worth it… and we sort of need a proof of life for this project before anyone sends a dime…

How about we chip in and pay the yearly subscription fee that you would have paid the other web site to Morgan?

Setup a good annual supporting fee Payable to Morgan, so your JBW will be updated enough to run and snipe for you. I’d sent support via paypal a couple of times in the past and I don’t mind at all to pay for a bit of support.

Hey, everyone else ask for a monthly “rental” fee of the software now (adobe, microsoft, etc.)

Everyone, let us know what YOU think.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Sign in fail with html error 405

Mooooorrrgan ? Hi,

I’m struggling with eBay, since yesterday, I posted 4 messages. They stay evasive in their responses, avoiding to reply to the main question “What has changed ?”. Guess what they did ? They directed me to this post ! ! !
Besides, my loggin issues and password re-initialisations are part of the package, completely rotting my life with them.

I read again the web concerning the 405 error: https://airbrake.io/blog/http-errors/405-method-not-allowed
This site is providing some interesting tips for troubleshooting the issue.
From my understanding the server receives the request, understand it but decides it’s not compliant to the expected protocol. I
“Conversely, a 405 code response confirms that the requested resource is valid and exists, but the client has used an unacceptable HTTP method during the request.”
However, it seems that there are some 50 variants to formulate the request and that wouldn’t ease the process.

we really are starving in front this problem and eager to get it solved. Please !

Or don’t – just declare it officially unsupported. I am looking at alternatives but really prefer JBW, and am hesitant to sign up for a year subscription if JBW is going to be back working again shortly. I’d rather toss a few dollars at JBW than something else…

It looks like Morgan has pretty much abandoned JBidwatcher, but I thought I would throw this out there just in case he does still check in once in a while.

Morgan: I’m sure you are busy, but can you please just get the eBay login working again? It’s seems to have been an issue for a while now, with a workaround that has also stopped working more recently. I really prefer having software on my machine doing the sniping rather than using one of the services, and JBidwatcher did exactly what I wanted. I just don’t want to give up on it!

I have not used JBW for probably two years. Too many problems getting signed in to eBay. I use Gixen which I find very reliable and there is no need to have the computer on. Just schedule your bid(s) and forget it.

As far as alternatives go, I’ve read of BidSlammer and Gixen, but both are browser-based.
One of the main reasons I always used JBW is that it’s not web-based and seems a little bit more reliable in terms of security.

Today – my JBW broke for the first time with the same error 405. (ebay.com Mac OS X).
I’m on OS X 10.13.6

I will try it on 10.14 and 10.15 later when I have time and report the findings.

sad to hear that…. I’d been using JBW for so many years, never had that issue (yet).

The only difference I can observe is that I am on Mac OS X, and assuming you all are not.
