Comment Topic: Announcements / [PreRelease] JBidwatcher 1.0.3pre2

Interesting result on an auction tonight: JBidWatch reported a successful snipe. However that snipe was sniped on the last second of the auction! Auction actually not won.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / leopard [mac OSX 10,5] broke jbidwatcher

Running fine here..
The previous and latest versions of JBidwatcher launch and run okay for me on my dual G4 using 10.5 Leopard including recent Apple updates (login/QT etc)
I will post details of any problems should I find any…

Thanks very much for this. Launches fine (OS X 10.5) and immediately asks to update to 1.02. which I ignored.

No problems as yet..

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / help

Hi Morgan!
I guess I was looking for a RSS news feed for ‘buy it now’ items as they appeared on ebay; a dynamic ‘early bird’ type widget. The BBC provide a desktop ticker tape newsfeed with clickable headlines and had hoped that something like that was available for new ebay listings based on a user defined search criteria.

Jbidwatcher can be adapted/configured to provide a similar newsfeed of new e-bay items on a continuous basis?

I was looking for the same some time back. Specifically I was hoping to find some clever [mac] software application that would provide a ‘ticker’ type display of newly added e-bay items based on search criteria. A ‘really useful engine’ indeed!

YAY! The terminal command worked a treat. The app is back in the running.

Cheers Morgan. Yet another beer I owe you.

Hi Morgan.
I do network through a home router (Linksys) but do not run any other firewall software ie Little Snitch. The older versions worked perfectly before the ebay updates broke the app in August. The only thing that has changed on my setup has been a routine update to OSX 10.4.10. I will recheck my setup. Interestingly the app does not seem to have a problem with time synch with the e bay server and I can sign in via bidwatcher etc. It dtails that it is updating the auctions at the bottom of the window but they do not update in the main window and it says N/A in the time left column..
Thanks for your reply and your work on this application.
Paul

Seems so. Ah no.. maybe not.
I keep checking for new posts for anything that might update the OS X version which does not appear to be able to ‘see’ to update any auctions at all. I miss this application.
Good luck with the time synch.

Comment Topic: Announcements / [Release] JBidwatcher 1.0.2 is now available!

Testing 1.03pre1 on OS X 10.4.10 looking for working update to this essential and most excellent program. Thanks for Jbidwatcher it has been brilliant!
Drag and drop auctions is not working and URLS added using paste appear but ‘N/A’ in the time left column and a ‘red eye’ for all items in the status column. Info on pasted auctions give the same finishing date for all new auctions as an old expired one .

I haven’t tested a snipe yet but without any times detailed I think it unlikely to work.

Good luck with the update Morgan
