: Hi, Vince...I have a great book on eBay Auctions by Dennis Prince, and he gives you full instructions on how to snipe without any software at all. It involves having two screens open & just watching the last few minutes closely. Sounded like a lot of trouble to me, but maybe the software does the watching for you & zips that last second bid in there.

: I think I just don't have that bloodlust in my personal makeup... somehow if I have to work that frantically, I figure it must be something I'm probably not supposed to have. I just place my bid (though not my FINAL bid) on the last day or so. You are right that you should NOT bid too early, as it can stimulate a real war, so I wait until sometime during the last day. And I'll check often enough that I know to rebid if I'm outbid...but I just can't get myself into a lather over any of it. It's supposed to be fun, but I think some bidders are really cutthroat about it. Funny, isn't it?

: But I really do enjoy shopping AND selling there. In fact, I'm busy tonight listing my auctions for the next 7 days. Got about 10 more to go, so I can get rich and run away to a tropical island where I can swim in the surf, drink rum, snorkle, fish, eat coconuts, and chase island boys...yeeeeeehaaaaaa!!!

Yes, the software allows some more flexibility aside from just splitting the two screens. You have to sleep sometime. Don't you hate it when you have to refresh screen just to prevent possible disconnection. Will probably order the software in the next day or two myself.

As for - To Snipe or Not To Snipe - That is an age old dilemna that many a professional hitmen have pondered.
