We have a forum for that. As Dr Strange mentioned earlier ITT, It's been our collective experience that most of the serious bidding occurs in the final moments of the auction. Bids that occur days before the auction ends may be meaningful to you, but for sought-after items like this they won't be indicative of the final price. This is in sharp contrast to the items that you usually sell on eBay, where the supply is plentiful and the prices don't fluctuate a lot. To be honest, updating your auction every hour or two here is more likely to turn folks off than anything. The most likely buyers from ChipTalk will see your thread in the Auction Links forum, whereas they might have stopped following this thread many pages ago. Also, in the Auction Links forum, it's much better to post a link to your auction than a screen shot of the current bid. Most of our members start the thread, leave it alone, and bump it with one day or a few hours to go. Serious buyers will be aware of your auction.
