In an Ebay auction this evening, my bid was winning until ONE SECOND from the end, when someone swooped with one of those automated sniping bids to secure the lot. This is the second consecutive time this has happened, and it was probably the same person.

I've made a few bids myself in the final minute or two of these auctions, but the ones I'm talking about give other bidders no time to react (in fact, the bid was revealed a few seconds after the auction finished), and couldn't happen at a 'real' auction, where there's always an opportunity to put in a counter bid. Not good.

:evil:
I had that happen to me a lot too. The thing I try to remember is that eBay lets you submit a maximum bid so I try to think about how much I am willing to spend before I would chose not to buy it & I submit that amount when I make my bid.

Holy s**t I had not seen this.

Back in 1997 we used to joke that he lived behind a friend's couch in a bedsit, it was funny at the time and difficult to explain the humour contained therein.

Just trust me on this.

Microsoft Office 2007. Re-centers if I deleted something while zoomed in.

Wasted so much time scrolling back and forth from the center to somewhere else.

Some idiot job interviewer emailed yesterday and wanted me to come in for an interview today

So I correctly told him that I have a job interview today and I could come Monday through Thursday after 3

Then he emailed and wanted phone interview

9:45am he emailed

But I was going to the other job interview

Then Kohl's bowel movement

f**k mister redelings


Didn't get back him til 4:30 library


Told him I could take a phone interview after 2 Monday through Thursday

Today is Friday


He called

Ass hole

Impatient



In the library, no talking on the phone


Besides I was logged in to the computer


Answering the phone involves drawing a circle on the screen


:roll:



Numerous times I tried and failed to answer the stupidass phone


Email not phone


Self important ass hole won't call when he's supposed to call




It was hot today



Got lost on the way to job interview

For the last few days I keep having to change my server for my VPN, Private Internet Access. Google doesn't work after a bit so I have to change my server from US East to another one & I picked US New York City. Then Google quits working after a bit & I have to change servers again. I can go back n forth between the same two severs or I can randomly select others.
