Go for it Northants bloke! Let us know if you get it...and if so how it sounds!
Keep an eye on the end of the auction - specifically the last 60 seconds. A lot of people use "sniping" tools which bid automatically for them in the last few seconds, so by the time you notice you've been outbid, it's too late!
www.auctionsniper.com is a classic example - it bids within the last 7 seconds and then charges you a small percentage (1%) of the auction finish price, up to a max of $10.
You may not want to use it, but at least you're aware of their sneaky tactics!!!
