I've recently been finding the "two hours" time to log out a session to be too short, with the hassle of logging in again and again. eBay's "one day" feature is bad enough already, I think - Hell, gmail's "two weeks" is about the minimum standard for me.

I'd love to use gixen as my primary monitor... as opposed to eBay's "items I am bidding on", which commits a bid. I tend to set gixen to $0.01 or something similar to enable silently keeping my eye on an auction without having anyone else in the world know. Gixen's list of items with pending snipes is perfect for "things I am currently tracking" - except, every two hours, it dies and I have to log in over and over again.

if I am confident that my computer is secure (which I am), I would like the convenience of not having to log in frequently.

Can we make that an option? To allow a log in to Gixen to last the user's choice of two hours, a day, a week, a year, perpetual 'til the end of time (May, 2038, if I recall correctly, given Unix's system date limits!), etc...

thank you!

Perhaps a better alternative would be to use JBidWatcher as your watch list. Since it automates the login process to eBay, the expiration of eBay's login cookie would not be a big deal. I'm waiting for Keith Hopkins to program the handshake between JBidWatcher and Gixen so that snipes can be scheduled using JBidWatcher as the interface. That would be the perfect setup.
