Bidwatcher / News: Recent posts

Major bugs

eBay has forced all bidding to occur only through signed-in clients. This means bidding in bidwatcher is indefinitely broken. We're all very busy, so a fix will come some time, but there is no ETA.

Forums, Mailing Lists

Hi folks. I've disabled the forums because well, I don't like them. I like email. ;) So, please subscribe to/use the bidwatcher-devel and bidwatcher-users mailing lists. And if you're interested in tracking changes, bidwatcher-cvs. Also, don't forget that I tend to hang out on IRC on, so drop by.

Note: I haven't actually deleted the contents of the forums, just made them unavailable.

1.3.4 is borked.

It was just brought to my attention that eBay made some changes that were pretty drastic, so we'll need to re-modulate the shield frequencies... or something. Just a heads up - expect a fix hopefully soon.

Posted by Kevin Dwyer 2002-09-06


I uploaded a whole lot of code I wrote for the new bidwatcher 1.4. Things have been totally redone and it's looking good. Hopefully I'll be able to get a release of it soon, but for now checkout the bidwatcher-1.4 cvs module to see what's up.

Posted by Kevin Dwyer 2002-07-08


It's old news by now, but I just got access to this stuff so I'm giving it a shot. 1.3.4 has been out so download and enjoy.
