MORGAN - HEY! The good news. Log-in is completed successfully button turns green & time is correct.
I have sniped & won since this development a week or so ago, but since I've set a snipe twice & both
times it failed to fire. Possibly due to a wake-up error since that was indicated in one log entry,
Second time I tried (on same item but different auction but same seller) nothing happened & the
computer was awake & running. The only thing that looks crazy is one entry in the error log that
repeats over a hundred times on two separate occasions. I can't send the log normally because I can't
get the error log open in a JbidWatcher window but I've copied the error & am posting it below.

"Wed Oct 07 16:29:00 EDT 2015: Exception during the check() operation of class com.jbidwatcher.ui.AuctionsManager java.lang.NullPointerException

Like I said - this error is repeated 50 times...
Preceeding code is posted below & repeats 4 or 5 times before the error above begins generating.

Dont know if this is of any use. If you need something more ask me & I'll try to find it.

    Greetings,
    Unfortunately 'java.net.UnknownHostException: cgi.ebay.com' means it could not figure out the IP address of cgi.ebay.com, one of the primary hosts JBidwatcher uses to look up auctions and other data from eBay.

    Being unable to figure out the IP address typically happens just after waking up a computer from sleep (it takes a few seconds for it to reconnect to the Internet). If that's not the case, something is breaking the ability to look up IP addresses, like a outbound firewall, or a temporary network outage.

    I believe eBay has gone to a single hostname, and JBidwatcher probably should also; this won't fix the problem if your system is losing the ability to look up addresses sometimes, but it'll simplify some of it, which sometimes makes the problems go away.

    MORGAN - I probably share at some of the blame. I have recently changed my computer (old iMac 32bit box running 10.6.8) energy saving prefs & allowed the hard drive to be put to sleep.
    I have since unchecked that option but it may not be the sole source of the problem with IP identification since my iFone uses WiFi to connect to the internet sometimes (randomly it seems) I get a warning on the iMac that "some other device" is using the primary IP assigned to the computer at start-up. I also fix other's Macs so I am intermittently turning on or off other computers onto the wireless network as well... If there's anything specific you need from me just ask & I'll try to hunt it down for you. I haven't tried JbidWatcher since the test after my update test logs to you (which failed) so I'm not sure if it's working now - as it was working earlier this week. If I have a chance I'll do another test this afternoon & send you an update.
    Thanks for all your hard work! It's a great tool & I wish I could figure out a way for you to actually make some money with it.
    Thanks again for the response I really do appreciate it!
