Anybody else still doing the bid4hunting auctions?

I've been on there off and on for over a week now and have just broke even. I could have done a little better but it's hard to guess what people will do. Sometimes the very same item goes for 10x what it did just the day before.

My biggest problem as the site seems to load very slow for me compared to others I use and on several occasions the auction clock has frozen and caused me to lose my money as the auction is over by the time it starts up again. Obviously this is only on my end as others keep bidding and win. I don't think it's my computer though as all other websites work fine and everything else on thier site works fine also.

Anybody else have problems?

I've been watching it the

I've been watching it the last few days and it is interesting.  Last night I won a 15 bid package for a couple of cents and then watched another one go for around 50 cents.  The funny thing was that the bidder that won it spent way more than 15 bids on it to get it.  I just wish that they would spread the ending times out over the day instead or grouping them together like they do.

I was thinking where you were

I was thinking where you were saying that your browser is locking up and what the problem may be.  If you are using IE 8 it may be an add on that is causing the problem.  Go to Tools in the header bar and then Manage Add Ons.  Then click on it.  It will bring up what add ons that are running when you open IE.  You can disable what ever one that you want and run the computer for a while and then if it isn't the causing a problem you can re-enable it.  Just remember that when you disable it you will need to close the browser and then reopen it before the add-on is disabled completely.  Just something for you to try

IE 8 is in fact what I'm

IE 8 is in fact what I'm running right now so I'll play with it and see what happens.

Thanks for the tip as I know very little about some of the technical stuff that makes these things work. I noticed when it happens that the small time clock up in the corner of the site continues to count normally nut only the countdown clocks are the ones that seem to freeze.

As a side note I won 40 bids tonight with a 17 bid output. Good enough for now I guess, at least I controlled the temptation to bid on things I didn't think I would have enough bids to win like I usually do.

I have been over there a few

I have been over there a few times...I did win a nice back pack for 6 cents.  I have seen alor of people from here I beleive as I see some familar screen names.  I choose a different screen name.  Semms like they are getting some more products instead of just alot of gift cards.  I too think it would be nice to see some auctions end throughtout the day because it does seem most of them end around the 8MST
