Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / (Almost) all auctions showing FP

“1) Ask for ‘Refresh ebay session’ and wait for the word ‘done’ to appear in the status bar.
2) Right-click on the test case an ask for an update on just that auction”

Thanks Paddym, this works for me.

Just wondering if there is a way to view the original text that is downloaded for each auction, from the ebay server, before it is parsed by JBid.
Then you could maybe diagnose problem for Morgan.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Multisnipe on auctions 75 seconds apart

Update
The multisnipe worked perfectly. I won the first auction and the second was cancelled immediately. Apparently well within the 75 second gap.
Yet another good result for me, from JBW. Especially when the auction is at 4:40am.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Multisnipe on auctions 75 seconds apart

Hi
Just wondering, is it reasonably safe to multisnipe on 2 auctions that are 75 seconds apart ?
(ie. not bidding on the second, if the first is won)
I have set the sniping time to 9 seconds and have a cable broadband connection.

Regards John

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Multisnipe on private auctions

Hi
Jbidwatcher really is a great program. I use it a lot every day.
Lately I have found some items, that I want to multisnipe on.
But they are private auctions, and JBW doesn’t allow this.
It gives the “Private auction/multisnipe error” window.
But I was just wondering, why can’t JBW detect when it wins a private auction ?
Of course, if you bid manually (on a private auction) and win, you are told immediately.
The only thing you are not told, is the identity of someone else, if they win.
Couldn’t JBW access a winning notification too ?

Regards Jeff

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Multisnipe items going to completed tab, but still active in multisnipe group

Hi Morgan
Once again thanks for the fantastic program, and for your informative reply.
It really is a very minor issue.
Most of the time, completed multisnipe items, don’t remain active in the group.
And it really is no trouble to check occasionally, in the completed tab, then right click on the item, and “update auction” will remove the colour shading. I really just mentioned it in the forum, in case it might help you in future development.
I might try and work out whats different about, the few items, that don’t have their won/lost status recognized correctly, because most do.

In general I find the way you can set up tabbed windows etc, and all the other features, make this
one of the best programs I have ever used. And its free !

I am just praying that JBidWatcher can keep working, because it seems like Ebay keep changing things.

regards John

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Multisnipe items going to completed tab, but still active in multisnipe group

Hi
Thanks for a fantastic program.
I use it continuously and couldn’t live without it.

Just one small issue –
I use multisnipes extensively.
But I regularly get multisnipe items, whose auction finishes,
then they go to the complete tab (as usual).
But they stay active in the multisnipe group.
This is obvious because their colour shading stays on.
The problem is, this still active item, prevents all future items, in the multisnipe, from firing.
If I manually update the auction information, for the item, it removes the shading.
But I now have to regularly have to check the complete tab, to do this.

Any ideas about a solution, would be much appreciated.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Multisnipe failed because earlier auction in group not updated

Hi
I had an auction in a multisnipe.
It was updating OK, but failed to fire, then moved to completed auction tab, as usual.
It has the follwing in the information :

Events Sun Sep 30 19:42:50 EST 2007: Preparing snipe. (1) Sun Sep 30 19:44:50 EST 2007: An earlier snipe in this multisnipe group has not been updated. (1) Sun Sep 30 19:44:50 EST 2007: This snipe is NOT being fired, as it could end up winning two items. (1) Sun Sep 30 19:45:03 EST 2007: Cancelling snipe.

But I cannot see any earlier auction that would be causing this problem.
Does anyone know if I can delete a file to remove previous auctions.
