Handy program, but it would be nice to see a modern icon, the current one is really not very attractive.

So i have to install Java 6 to make this software work. Java 6 has several bugs and security issues, so no Auction Sieve for me.

Hi Stefaan,
The latest version of Java with the most up-to-date security is Java 8 which can be downloaded from here:
https://www.java.com/

After installing that, AuctionSieve should work just fine.
(Let me know if not!)

@Hashbang - I'm on aMacBook Pro, 10.10.2 and Java 8.31 but I still get the message about needing Jave SE 6 Runtime.

I gather from your message below (just earlier today) that this is suppose to be fine now with newer Java.

As I have not installed Java 6 I have not run the AuctionSieve I cannot confirm the version (suppose to be 2.7.2). However it seems odd the creation and modification dates are both 1-October-2014.

Is the the newest version of AuctionSieve?

thank you

Ugh - Java on the Mac is such a dog's breakfast.

One other thing to try is downloading the latest JDK from here:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

If that still doesn't work, it's possible that you still need to download that special Java 6 from Apple for some reason. Not ideal. Let me know if the download above sorts it out.

Oh and yes, that is the latest version - it's just that I re-used the zip file which had that older creation date - the files inside the zip are the latest

@Hashbang - very odd: yesterday I downloaded and installed what was suppose to be AuctionSieve 2.7.2 (but as mentioned never could finish launching to confirm version as it wanted Java 6).

This morning - I noticed MacUpdate.app offering me AS 27.2 (from version 2.7.1) so I let it do the install. And BINGO - AS 2.7.2 launches with no complaint about needing Java6.

I know I downloaded and installed 2.7.2 but when back to my backup clone. It ALSO launches and states it is only 2.7.1.

Yesterday when having this problem I Repaired Permissions, Checked the Disk and even restarted and what I "thought" was 2.7.2 still would not open due to the J6 error.

Now it works and I've done nothing different. Oh well.

Thanks for your quick comments / help.

The downloaded file is flagged as damaged (on 10.9.3); I've re-downloaded even from the developer's site and the problem remains.

Thanks for the head-up. This is a new security setting in 10.9. As a workaround, you can follow the instructions here : http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/58086/646 Once you've changed that setting, you can run AuctionSieve and then change the setting back and AuctionSieve will continue to run. I need to spend some time figuring out how to sign the app so this doesn't occur in future...

Depending on your needs, regular eBay search is often quite adequate. However, there are a number of things that AuctionSieve does that regular eBay can't. Most users of AuctionSieve are collectors who are looking for the same kinds of things on a regular basis. For example, old Star Wars action figures. So they want to run the same searches every day or week. AuctionSieve helps in this because it does the following - saves the search criteria, so you can run it again the following day - allows you to specify multiple searches and the results get grouped together - allows you to see all the results in one place, rather than on lots of separate web pages - *lets you filter stuff out* - this is where it's really useful - say I'm not interested in the Yoda figurine, I simply highlight the word yoda, and create a trash word - from that point forward I'll never see any yoda items in my results ever again! There are a whole bunch of filters that can be turned on and off with one click - remembers the results you've already seen and won't display them again when you run your sieve the next day - can store price history and calculates the average price of things

Downloaded this, in 'Search term' I typed 'Denon Receiver' and up came 48 results including 'Remote Nitro Car', 'PC keyboard', 'Earphone Headset'. Perhaps in 'Search Term' I should have put 'find' ?? Even if I didn't set it correctly, where did all this stuff come from? I didn't ask for what showed up? Straight in the bin for me.

Occasionally eBay make changes and I need to update AuctionSieve to handle them. Current version appears to handle your search terms ok.

Interesting application but "trash words" filter only in titles not in descriptions, so the excluding words must be in the title otherwise the item is still listed.

Looks nice. Only problem I'm having is when trying to VIEW an auction in Safari. I'm using Saft, and instead of the auction appearing, I get the following. file:///Library/InputManagers/Saft/Saft.bundle/Contents/Resources/space.gif I think it's probably a Saft problem, so I'm not attributing the issue to AuctionSieve. However, it is a major pain since Saft is one of those 'can't live without it' apps that I'm not prepared to give up.... Shame.

You need to uncheck the "Block Ad/Banners" or "Block Pop-Up Windows" in the Safari> menu. This also happens (e.g.) in Google searches if you click on one of the featured links at the top or down the right hand side.

Wow - about time this program got an update! This app is so helpful, and it seems to be the only one of its kind. It's not easy to communicate how f$#@%^g frustrating the eBay search pages can be. Your program is a miracle -- I was wondering why nobody had created something useful to deal with eBay's awful site. Everytime you put in a new query, eBay loads up the whole damn page again, taking its sweet time, wasting mine. I pull my hair out on a daily basis going through all the junk on eBay. I love how you can simply download all the listings at once here, then instantly sort (sieve...) through them. I hope this app gets the attention it deserves, so it can keep getting updates and step closer to perfection. I love it. My only gripe -- your icon (or logo... whatever the brown picture is here on MU) is a bit dark and hard to see. At first I thought it was one of those "vistalite" drum kits. The actual program icon is nice though... maybe you're already getting to that...? Eh. Kudos to a truly handy little app! Keep this thing alive!
