The Auction Guild Notes for Wednesday 5 Jan 2000

eBay went down at approx 2145 PT and due to the backup system was back
up by 2232 PT. No auction extensions, but you could try to request FVFs
for the items closing during or right after this outage.

20/20 ran a show today about scams on eBay. Unfortunately, the goal of
the show appears to have been to show how dangerous it is to bid online,
and it succeeded. I guess it wouldn't be interesting enough if they
emphasized the 98+% of auctions that go off without a glitch, instead of
focussing on the less than 2% that have some problems. For the related
print article go to

Currently approx 3.2 million listings
