Please give us your input on the NEW SURVEY   How did you find TAGnotes?
eBay is looking for input on the design of the new search pages.
They have tabbed the main search page, what they are calling advanced
search. They have tabbed the gallery options on the search results page.
One of the things STILL missing though, is having the search pages
paginated. This feature is long overdue, and if enough people email
them, maybe they will fix this problem. Send comments to: newe-@e...
with the words New Search Pages in the subject.

We have once again contacted eBay in another attempt to get the promised
logs needed to solve the alleged spider problem that eBay used as the
excuse to shut down our ISP subnet in October. These were promised when
they unblocked us 4 Nov 99, and we have received excuse after excuse as
to why they have not yet provided them to us. We will continue to
pursue this until eBay either provides us with the information or they
come clean as to exactly why they blocked us.
