yep, kudos to him and auctiva team!
because of historical problems on dime days and FLDs, i opted for trying to get stuff posted via File Exchange (bulk upload direct to eBay). And between fixing the problems with the file, a poorly written manual, and ebay getting bogged down, it's been a pain (but as good a time to learn as any )
Point is, even ebay is choking and coughing today. Several times when trying to upload data direct to ebay I got server timeouts and very slow responses.
