No no the Nero 600m was that only fig I did that to. I needed a fig to survive the winter up here in WA state. Also I've tracking this plant down for some time. Even emailing the owner of the planet fig website to see where he got his from. Old Camera lens are my usual target.
The key to winning is the last 10 seconds, not 5 days out. If you bid 5 days out that only let the people watching know that someone else is there. Set you budget and a backup limit. I only watch and stay hidden, for those last 10 seconds is key. If you bid $97 I will throw out $120 making sure I beat you by $1 winning at $98. Everyone else who bids in between that will get the "you've been outbid" message. It takes about 3 seconds to change a bid, 3 seconds wasted plus lag. I know the maximum I will be willing to spend before I back out. I'm 23 years old, single, don't drink, smoke, party, or club. So I have money to spend on other things.
The bad side is if that one person gets lucky and bid $119 then I will be forced to pay $120 when I win. Trust me I learned my lesson with that one. I tried bidding $91 on a lens and typed in $9100 by mistake. Normally I would have still won by $1, but someone else messed up too and typed in $9099. what are the chances huh!? Lucky the seller understood the mistake and canceled the bid.
