Snipe failed; probably because of too-close timing.

...finally, I had a snipe fail today and am reporting it to keep JbidWatcher so good.

My timing for snipes is set at 5 seconds and I have never had one fail before. I have now set it to 10 seconds in case though. (My computer time was about 4 seconds faster than ebay time also) My internet speed is generally very good (high bandwidth and low latency), but performance does suffer at around 3pm (school kids) for voip so I guess this could have been part of the reason.

Anyway the results from the 'show information' page for the item is below (if you reply, great, if not that's fine too as I expect you are extra busy now):
