ebay time is 5 seconds ahead in JBID

Reported by stormy1777 | August 24th, 2008 @ 02:39 PM | in 2.1 Release

I'm located in Israel now, timezone is IDT, it's exactly 10 hours ahead of PDT clock. No matter what I do, I always see the ebay time run FASTER by 4-5 seconds in JBID, compared to this website:


and the speaking clock at 1 719 567 6742 (Colorado time, just use the seconds to compare).

my snipe was set to 5 seconds, I thought it was that, but I set it to 30 and restarted, and still always JBID syncs 4-5 seconds FASTER than the real time at ebay.

I tried sync-time, I see messages like: Mon Aug 25 00:37:28 IDT 2008: Successfully synchronized time with ebay. Mon Aug 25 00:37:28 IDT 2008: Server time is now: Mon Aug 25 00:37:54 IDT 2008

but in the end, the time on the top right "ebay time" is 5 seconds faster than the one in California.

    In the first 20-30 seconds when I start JBID it's exactly as ebay time, but then it drifts and continues to maintain a 4-5 second difference to the real clock. To workaround I set my snipe time to 1 second, and thus it should work ok.. and do the snipe about 5-6 seconds before real time ends.

    This is believed to be fixed. Either in some earlier release, the current (2.1pre5), or a soon-to-be released version. If the problem still occurs with 2.1pre5 (or a the latest, if a newer version has been released), please re-open.
