With shipping and insurance...$70.90.  Found the one that included the manual, b/c on ebay only three were listed...and two of them were just the disk.  If I'm going to pay an arm and a leg for a game, I want the manual!  BTW, more likely than not, my sister will pay for half of it.  She never told me definately before I bid b/c she was headed back to school and there were 10  min. left in the auction!

hahahaha... yes i got it ; ), wasn't that hard to follow ; )

but I understand those who waits for the last few sec's, cuz if you want to have it, but don't have the money to outbid everyone in the beginning all you can do is wait for the end and place a sudden bet ; /

Well, I have a set amount of what I'm willing to pay...I determine how much I want an object and how much I'm going to pay.  It also matters whether my sister will go in with me with the cost.  So, when I bid, I go ahead and set my maximum bid...and if I don't win, I'll go to another auction and try again, with the same bid...That's just how I do it anyway.  And if someone wants it more than me or is willing to pay more, than that person's losing out...at least money-wise!  :P

EDIT:  Maybe we should start a thread for "Ebay Pet-peeves"...just a suggestion!

Well if there is something i really want then i get onto the site in the last 10 minutes and watch it ;)

The reason i do this is cos when i first started i put a maximum bid on but someone always outbid me >:(, so i decided i would watch more carefully from now on ;B

My feeling is this...I know how much I'm going to spend and won't spend more than that.  So I just patiently wait to see if I've been out-bid...if so, oh well, I'll just try again later.

Haven't I've gone over this before?  Maybe I should just stop posting in this thread until we go off onto another topic  ;P

What happened was i decided that the most i would spend was $40. I bid $20 on it but was out bid a couple of days later :'(. Anyway in the last ten minutes of the items bidding time i came back ;D, and at the last 10 seconds i put a maximum bid of $40 ;B. He thought i had gone to $35 so he bid that but he was $5 off and so i won ;-D.
