Occasionally eBay suffers a system-wide "hard outage" and can't accept bids at all
for some period of time. eBay's outage policy currently states that auctions will
be extended by 24 hours only if a hard outage lasts more than two hours.
If you planned to snipe on an auction that ends during a hard outage less than
two hours long, you're out of luck. The last person who bid before the outage began
eSnipe cannot protect you against losing an auction that ended during a hard outage.
If an auction's closing is extended, though, eSnipe will automatically enter your bid
just before its new closing time.
