Is this a solution to the multi-swipe issue?

Hi Morgan,

thanks for a great tool.

Like others, and yourself, I'm gutted not to have multisnipe any more I only just noticed as haven't bid for years. I remembered how good JBidWatcher was back when I did, so came back several years later to use it again. I understand your reasoning for removing it and also not using the expensive eBay APIs.

Here's the idea...
Can you authenticate as per bidding and then use a dirty webscrape type method on for the auction?

I'm aware such methods are highly breakable compared to APIs - so it would have to be written defensively - i.e. unexpected result = cancel subsequent bids.

Keep up the good work - if you get multiswipe going I promise to pledge! I trust a locally installed program like this that's got history way more than I would ever a random sniping website with my account details.
