You seem to assume that we all have time to watch earlier
items. I find that I can just keep up with one or two
days ahead. Even so, I have to skip maybe 1 or 2 days a week.
Some how, you seem to think that people are just watching
for 7 days. Most are only looking one or two days ahead.
If it is an item that has already gone past my max, I
don't waste time on it. If it is still in my price range,
I'll bid on it. Usually the first bid is just a place holder
below what I expect to make as my final bid.
