What is BidRobot and what does it do?
BidRobot(tm) is the name for a group of programs running on multiple high-performance servers that do nothing but place bids on eBay at the time you specify, check the status of the bid, and email you with the results. BidRobot uses proprietary BidRobot technology to deal with slow server performance, BidRobot and eBay network bottlenecks, peak bid placement periods, and the many other real-time performance issues that threaten the integrity of your bid. BidRobot is constantly being tuned and improved to distribute its load over multiple processes on multiple computers, running on multiple Internet backbones, on several different databases. Of course it’s not always convenient to place last-minute-bids when many auctions end at all times of the day and night! Before BidRobot was available, overseas and east coast people would need to stay up in the middle of the night to place last-minute bids.
