Dang ...

OOOOH ... I just hate it when somebody sweeps in at the last second to beat me on things! I was winning on two (out of four I was bidding on) auctions with like 30 seconds left, and on EACH of them the same guy jumped in with SIX SECONDS remaining to out-bid me. I was thinking it might be somebody "live" until I saw the timing on that ... he also won one of the other with 6 seconds to go ... so I suspect it's more likely that this was another damn bot, programmed to hit at x-seconds from close. I was bidding close to my "target", but was willing to respond upwards ... but it's damn hard to respond when the overbid comes in with no time on the clock! Grumble, grumble, grumble ...
