Bad luck mate! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif I've never forgot to bid whilst looking at the screen but i've missed the bid because my comp has been running slow and not refreshed the page in time, when this has happened the item has usually gone for the asking price just to add insult to injury http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

An automated sniping service like Esnipe (http://www.esnipe.com) would definitely help avoid the regret associated with bid forgetfullness. I highly recommend it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

This has happened to me too many times to mention. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Maybe it's just a British thing. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Couldn't agree more. I use esnipe all the time and it has never let me down. It's especially useful for us UK guys as most of the good stuff on ebay.com ends in the middle of the night.

Or in the middle of the day for those of us who work places that rabidly prohibit any personal internet use from company computers.

Another fantastic service is www.auctionsniper.com (http://www.auctionsniper.com/?how=80smania). Their rates are fairly low and your first 3 snipes are free. In the year that I've used them I've probably won 100+ auctions and have never had a problem.
