Good find, and they look to be the high pressure sort of valve we had been discussing recently.

It's a joke. It means that you would post something along the lines of "that's interesting" in this thread, and then swoop in 2 seconds before the auction expires and put a winning bid on it. :D

thats quite allright dave and bio!

mark means: "Sniping is the common practice of bidding on an auction by waiting until the last possible moment, then placing one bid in such a manner that other bidders do not have time to respond"

dave: keep in mind the price you payed when deciding on your"very good price"

That's what I like about http://www.trademe.co.nz. The seller has the option of choosing that if someone bids within the last 2 minutes, the auction time restarts so there is still 2 minutes remaining.

For example, if I bid with 2 seconds to go, the auction will reset the time so there is now 2 minutes to left in the auction. It's good and bad I guess, but at least it is fair and good for the seller.

I use a site called http://www.justsnipe.com. Have been registered there for a couple of years now, never had an issue with the fact they have my ebay password, so join if you need it. I tend to use it to bid on anything, because it means I can cancel the bid right up to the last minute.

Hmm, 10 minutes 31 seconds left.

Naaaaaah, can't be bothered, I'm not making cannons right now, have enough to do working on ignition systems, happy bidding ^_^
