    Unforutunately, I missed the deadline yet again :(

    Had to get lunch, forgot about the auction until 2.03pm....

    I had the radar firmly aimed at ecommerce.net.au

    I need to be much more organised!

    yeah how much were you willing to spend but, I saw it shoot from 74 to like 530 or something in the last minute, I do not know if it is worth that for a .net.au sure an affiliate ecommerce style site would be good but.

    I know the feeling.

    I now set myself a daily alarm that goes off at around 12:20pm, which gives me about half an hour to go through and make my bids after some quick research.

    Reminder email needs to be sent by Drop at around 1pm.

    I also have an alarm which goes off at 1.35pm.

    Dropaholics Anonymous meetings are at 1pm in the afternoon and I'm unfortunately preoccupied at that time.
