is a sniper not a man who hides on a tall buiding with a gun and shoots people ???

A sniper? What do you want a sniper for? Wouldn't that be illegal?

fryalot Fri 31-Aug-07 22:05:16

DarrellRivers Fri 31-Aug-07 22:07:09

how much does he cost?
and does he only shoot dogs?

We use Auction Sentry ( I think)...very good, was very cheap about $15, get regular updates free of charge.

Oh, now that IS boring. I thought we'd uncovered a gun smuggling ring on MN. Why does NOTHING exciting ever happen in my life?

they put in a bid for you a few seconds before the end of the auction - you snipe the item! Its very satisfying to win the item 3 seconds from the end and all the other bidders lose grin

oh, but that takes all the fun out of it!!!

So you don't need to get up in the middle of the night and do sily things like that

never used one myself but i do know a friend of mine used them and never paid for them...think she got them from the same sites she got films from <coughs>

So that's how it's done! I usually sit continually hitting the refresh button - I KNEW there had to be an easier way.
