I'll check in with mom and bro'* and ask what service they have.
I bet a google search would bring up some of the top one'* though.

PJ...I'm still sniping the old fashioned way too. And don't listen to those wimps who need a service because their dial up connection can't do it for them...hahahaha (j/k guys...ok..only a little)

It'* all about the fun of sitting there with 12 seconds or less saying to yourself "I'm getting this!"

Princess I've gotten it down to a science keeping two IE windows open, one to refresh...one with the sniping bid.

No earlier than 12 seconds left. I try and leave them only enough time to say "Oh CRAP!"

Oh! I never actually thought about using two windows...excellent idea...

I think it'* funny only because 1) I win! and 2) I can just see someone sitting there wondering what the heck just happened.
