Shake Head Ebay auctions & British Summer Time

It seems that because of the clocks going forward it's affected auctions by an hour as well. So for example by putting on a 10 day auction at 10:15pm before BST, instead of finishing exactly 10 days later it will now end at 11:15pm on the 10th day.

This means that all of my 8 current auctions will now finish later, at times when there'll be fewer buyers online, and will probably cost me

Before any pedants reply, I realise that 10 days = 240 hours so the auction end time is technically correct, but logically most people would expect the auction to finish at the same time that it was put on!

Potential bargains for those of us who usually stay up a wee bit later then?

Most of the stuff I want bid on these days seems to get sniped so it probably doesn't make much difference!

Serves you right for not planning ahead properly then
