Looks like taking off time synchronization does no good. It quickly becomes inaccurate from the actual ending time.

I’d like to add, in the version of jBidwatcher I am currently using there is an option to disable time synchronization in the config menu. I have turned this off and will see how this effects my snipes…

I have also been experiencing the problem. It did not start happening until day light savings time kicked in. I was doing snipes up until it had kicked in.

It seems to me that JBidwatcher does have the correct time when you initially add an auction in to the program. Maybe a simple solution to this problem if eBay does not fix it (or if they meant to do this) would be to take the initial time from eBay but after that do not synch time with eBay as to avoid getting a false time update.

Comment Topic: General Sniping Discussion / Ebay seems to be forcing a captcha :-(

Same thing is happening to me… it’s really odd. I am not having this problem on my laptop at home (it still lets me log in…), but for some reason I am having it here at the office! It’s forcing me to use seperate E-bay names, but now even one of the new ones I made is coming up with the captcha! Ughhhh

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / Easy way to avoid CAPCHA

I agree this is desperately needed! I have to keep alternating E-bay Profiles because of these darn “CAPTCHAS”. I would bet if a window showing the captcha image and with an input box to enter the digits, this would solve the problem. I hate E-bay some times :(
