Sorry about that, you were quite unlucky - Gixen main ISP had a networking issue last night. I just posted an announcement about it.

Rolling Eyes Firstly if I was sniping something at 5800 I sure as hell would have signed up for the mirror service at $6 - that's just common sense.
Gixen works and it is made quite clear that the free service has limits.
That's why there is the mirror service - for a ridiculously low fee of $6 you have added security that your snipes will work.
I used the basic service for approximately 1 week, and then subscribed to the mirror service, not only to maximize my snipes success rate but also to support the amazing job Mario does. Rolling Eyes

If you were at your computer when the auction ended, why didn't you just put your bid in manually - especially if the car was so important to you?

(Also, even though it sold for GBP 5,300, you don't know how high the highest bid was, so you may not have won it at GBP 5,800).

I had a HTTP TIMEOUT(77) error in the past, luckily on a cheap and impulse buy item.

When I was after a lens for my camera for around GBP 200 (sold items going for between GBP 190-GBP 230), I damn sure paid my $6 for the Mirror service and it really paid off because there was another HTTP TIMEOUT(77) error on the item I managed to snag!

Long live Gixen mirror!
