1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Gents,

    There are those of you quite experienced in the marvels of Ebay.

    A question for you:

    Is it possible to configure one's account so that Ebay emails you everytime certain items have been listed, such as:

    "Southwick 42"

    or

    "Crimson Shop"

    or what-have-you?

    If so, it would save me from having to type in obscure, now defunct haberdashers and whatnot.

    Usually I find that items older shops, no longer in business, will occasionally be listed at fairly good prices, and I'd like to snap up an item or two, but unfortunately, I rarely have the time to go through and search Ebay like I'd like to.

    Or if I have the time, I find that 2 or 3 hours has passed and you know, can't have that happening to often...

    Thanks gents.

    H.

    Easy. Do a search for the item you want, and when the results come up there will be a link at the top of the page that says "Add to favorites" or "Add to favorite searches." From there, you get set up preferences to be e-mail whenever a new item is listed.

    Is it possible to extend your search to items that have recently ended?

    Yup - completed items can be searched and then the results saved in like fashion..

    I get lots of "You had this for $100 and it did not sell, would you take 37 cents?" emails.

    Carlo:

    Oh, there you are. Why aren't you answering my e-mails.

    That last shipment of six ties was very nice. But I thought it was 37 cents for the six and you charged my credit card for $ 2.22.

    What gives? Are you a rip-off or something?

    I added in a charge for the six pairs of Zimmerli you shorted me. Search your inbox for biteme@carlofranco.com - that's the address I replied from [​IMG]
