the time you find summat exceedingly nice on e bay with a week to go

stick a bid on it, reasonable one, not a silly daft hope'y type one and sit back

watch it during the week, and it gets a couple half hearted bids, so you stick another £10 on top of your high bid to just give you that bitta room

log on with an hour to go, everythings cool, your still top bid

half hour to go, still there its near on yours

5 mins to go your still in the lead with the second bid you made not even reached

2 mins and theres 24 bids with 6 of em coming in the last 10 seconds

swear, curse, swear curse !

I bid what I am willing to pay with 20 seconds to go.
Win some, lose some.

I might be wrong here, but wasn't there a way to get eBay to notify you of a couple of minutes to go and show the highest bid at that time?

There used to be a web site called 'sniper that would supposedly bid for you at the exact last second,never worked for me.
