but screencast is nice
I’m glad you like the screencast.
Cool and sweet, since I am learning.
I want to use this code in a query from wordpress. And i want to show it multiple times, any idea’s how to?
Can internet lag from a persons computer to the primary server (Bid Timer), then back to the persons computer (Bid Timer) be eliminated. I hear that some people are not seeing the correct countdown time on their computer subsequently causing their Bid Strategy to be off. Some people say that occasionally their view of the timer goes from 2 seconds to Sold. Not everyone has this problem. Any explanations?
That’s definitely an issue. There will always be some lag between the server and client. So, if I ask what time it is or how long the timer has left, the information I get back from the server is as old as the response is on the server. So, if there’s a 300ms delay between the server sending the response and the client receiving the response, then the timer will end 300ms late.
There may be some clever ways to figure out what the delay (approximately) is and account for it, but I’m just not sure.
Has e-bay solved this problem?
