eGroups is merging into Yahoo. They still have not worked
out the bugs from the OneList/eGroups merger, so we can't
predict how much of a change or disruption this will cause.
We will keep our readers posted when and if changes happen.
eBay had another outage on 27 Jun for approx 30 minutes
beginning at 13:45 PT. The site was reported available at
14:35:15 PT. On 28 Jun at 14:12:54 eBay reported listings
were unavailable. A user could still use title search to access
auctions. This was reported fixed at 14:26:19 PT. End of
auction notices are going out late. No information as to when
this will be fixed was posted. If you feel your auctions were
negatively impacted by any of these problem we highly
recommend you contact bill-@e... and request a refund.

as well as making it the default tab in My eBay.

notify watchers which items on their watch list are ending within
36 hours. Watchers will be able to turn off this email at their

There is also information on the data and how it was collected. TAG
will post a detailed comparison on the TAG site early next week.
