Congrats Jim. Did you wait til the last minute or did you use a secret weapon? I have a secret way of winning auctions without tipping my hand.

Snipping! Snipper!

(I hear you knocking, and use a "non-tip of the hand" method as well)

The other guy had gone and bid again to outbid me, I managed to get in one more bid in at $107.50 USD and I had 1 second left.

No secret weapon, but I wonder how dialup users win anything on Ebay?

yep. last second is the only way to win (unless you are one of the really sneaky people) if anyone else even cares about the item, that'* the way I've won most everything I have off ebay.
