Comment Topic: That's so meta... / Snipe anomaly?

JBidwatcher obviously checks the level of bid periodically, and if your snipe is too low, it posts a message. This happened to me, I reset the snipe amount greater than the auction level, but the snipe was not made. However, without resetting the snipe, it normally works fine.
Seems to be that if the snipe value is changed close to auction close then the scan for it may be missed for some reason or another.
Cheers,
Alistair.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / Feature - WinOS shutdown

Desired performance:
On completion of a specific Snipe, the PC shuts down.

The Windows API allows easy Shutdown methods.
What I’d suggest is that Shutdown be implimented on individual items settings eg with the menuitems list for each item. That way there might be several snipes on a day, but the last one could be selected and set to shutdown on completion. Cheers, Alistair.
