eBay is conducting regularly scheduled maintenance on Fri 21Apr,
between 01:00 PT and 05:00 PT .

eBay resolved the issues with the Canadian listing update problems
at 02:47 PT on the 19th. They then had the same kind of problems
again on the US site starting at 13:26 PT on the 19th. This part of
the system impacts listing information and information in Current,
New Today, Ending Today and Going, Going, Gone Listings.
Listings information was current as of 10:15 PT, Tue 19Apr.
eBay reported they had resolved the problems that caused the delay
in Listings yesterday at approx 14:16 on 20 Apr. Listings information
is current as of 11:25 PT, Thur 20Apr. This is another problem in a
three week stretch of varied intermittent glitches.

eBay is forming a relationship with Internet Pictures Corporation
(IPIX) for free, integrated, photo hosting. They plan to have it
ready this fall, and will initially offer two free pictures per
listing, plus they are planning to offer additional options such
as a slide show and the ability to add additional photos for a fee.

eBay is hosting a chat session with Jim Haas, Butterfield's
specialist for Native & Tribal Art. He will be available to answer

Amazon Auctions continues to insist it has made a good decision
by changing it's default to hot items. It has ignored the pleas and
demands of its users, and even the most loyal appear to be
discouraged enough to depart. Several theories at to WHY Amazon
is doing this have been suggested, but we have yet to see one that
made any sense. TAG continues to recommend all Amazon
users email or call Amazon with your opinion about this issue.
The email address we have on file for the CEO Jeff Bezos is
