Forgive my ignorance and without asking you anything confidential about Gixen how else can automatic snipers like Gixen work other than scripts?

To be fair to Auctionsniper, I have to say they do provide SSL as optional I believe - there is a link on the form to switch to SSL if you want. But this should be mandatory in my opinion.

As I've now seen other posts with web site names I'll tell you, it was Auctionsniper.
While we are on them I was shocked to see on your site that AS don't use SSL from customer to server. No more AS for me, ever!!!
Thanks again Mario

Post subject: Great Gixen - 5 seconds from top of the hour
Sorry for the dual posting, this went in the suggestions forum and thought it should really be here.
I've used various other snipers on free trials with referral credits etc but this is great. Set Gixen today and won my auction with an extra surprise.
I assume we don't mention names of other snipers on here but a couple of months ago another sniper failed to win an auction as it bid 22 seconds before the auction end. When I questioned them the reply was the bid was so early because the auction finished on a full hour, e.g. 17:00:00 and because eBay servers are busier at full and half hours the software snipes earlier to account for this
My auction tonight finished at 19:00:00 and Gixen sniped at 5 seconds. ASTOUNDING. I know you can't guarantee anything but I'll take my chances here any time.
Thanks very much. I've recommended you to all my eBay buying friends.
