Not to worry... they will also extend the time to send consignment checks and winning lots too.

Business as usual for the Legendary-Mastro crew!

As I write this, the clock on all lots shows about 26 minutes left. Does that mean 26 minutes left to get in an initial bid, 26 minutes left in the extended bid period, or 26 minutes left until the lot is closed if no further bids are received?

Huh, since when have I been anonymous? My e-mail's right there (as it always is) and you and Doug both know who I am (first name, last name, hell Doug even has my credit card number). That's weird -- so was you banning me from the site (however temporarily).

All I said was with the countdown it's confusing as to whether all lots end at 11:30 PM CST and then enter the 30-minute rule or if lots are already in the 30-minute period. A clarification on that would avoid confusion and actually help the auction (I'm bidding now just in case, but if others are still confused, then they are going to miss out if the latter is actually the case).

The issues that occurred on Legendary Auctions tonight were due to problems on SimpleAuctions servers. Because of the performance issues on the servers, Doug Allen decided to extend the auction by one hour. In so doing, SimpleAuction inadvertently set the timer incorrectly, causing confusion. All issues have been resolved and SimpleAuction sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience. We would also like to thank Doug for his patience and support.

I forfeit. I get more patient all the time, or at least I thought so until tonight.

Well, I thought the whole thing was pretty dissapointing. Although there was just one lot last night I was even interested in, after about 10-15 minutes of trying to get the auction to load I just quit. I did see later on the board here that the initial bids had been extended by an hour. Terrific, but I'm on the east coast and get up at 4:45 am....so, I went to bed.

Well, I tried to log in several times last night to put in my initial bids right before the deadline, but I kept getting error messages. So I was getting too tired and went to bed, and missed the auction.

This morning I see several emails from last night telling me their computer was overloaded.

I had been saving about 5 thousand dollars for this auction.
