eBay is conducting its scheduled maintenance and will be down on
Fri 7 July between 01:00 PT and 05:00 PT. As usual eBay expects
Search updates to be 12 to 15 hours behind on Fri and Sat following
scheduled maintenance.

There is a reminder on the AB about the special rules applying to the
Honus Wagner T206 baseball card auction now in progress. This
was reported in full in TAGnotes Thur 22 Jun 2000 Vol 2 Number

Billpoint in conjunction with Visa is running a national TV advert
featuring eBay. The commercial aired on U.S. television networks
starting with the Survivors show on CBS 5 Jul. This multi-million
dollar campaign is reported by eBay to be on users behalf to raise
public awareness of eBay as a shopping venue and to bring
new buyers to the site. TAG has not seen the advert, so will
reserve judgement until we see exactly what is being promoted,
and how. To try to increase use of eBay Online Payments
by Billpoint, eBay will waive all Billpoint fees through
31 Jul for items closed with a Visa card. For more info go to

Approx 4.34 million current listing

AuctionWatch.Com has launched Version 1.5 of Auction Manager
Pro. It features
Manage thousands of images using a folder system.
New image management solution uses less system resources.
Most prominent v1.0 bugs have been fixed.
Users can customize the image bar to show the actual images or the
image title, file size, and dimensions.
Users can double clicking on the thumbnail images or image titles
to preview the full size image.
There have been some problems reported on the AW boards with
downloading just the upgrade. The consensus appears to be that if
you run into problems - uninstall version 1.0 and then install v1.5.
