No progress yet - 2015-12-23


The coder is gone until January. I'm looking for another coder to make the changes, taking some time.

I'm deleting any pending snipes for tomorrow, if there are any.

Hopefully the changes will start in the next couple of days. Sorry for the delay.

Deleting snipes for the 23rd - 2015-12-22


I'm deleting snipes scheduled to execute on the 23rd.

I'm deleting snipes for the 22nd - 2015-12-21


I'm again deleting snipes for the 22nd. The fix, if it works, should only take 2 or 3 days to complete, but it hasn't been started. Apparently the coder thought I was giving up so he hasn't been back this week.

I'm hoping he checks in tomorrow, but I don't know if he will. I don't want to get someone else to work on it but have to if he doesn't show up in the next day or two. It would take another coder a day or so just to understand the code and what's going on and where to edit to make the changes.

Hidbid is the sniper engine for another site and I posted a similar warning on that site as I did hidbid, but I didn't remove the snipe button on the other site as the code uses a CMS that isn't straightforward. A couple of users there have ignored the warning and set up snipes and they've executed. However, without the updates and with the normal # of snipes coming from hidbid again, things would go downhill quick with login errors and most likely then the captchas appearing for every snipe.

I've screwed this up royally.

I've refunded the subscription payments for the past 5 weeks, but I have not canceled them.

Again, sorry for the trouble. I'm hoping at least some of you will check back in a couple of days.
