Hi Sasha,
I was going to buy your software today and then I thought,
"I wonder if he has done anything with the 'seconds' countdown yet?"

Computers on the NYSE go in milliseconds.
I set my Mybidder to '.01' but from what I can tell it doesnt really make a difference.

I was hoping you would offer the seconds countdown in MICROSECONDS in the software version.
Would you please explain how MYBIDDER handles the input of smaller increments of seconds, and if it doesnt, would you be offering this in the software in the future?

Sincerely Susan

Why do you need microseconds? The highest bidder wins, not the latest.
So if you put 0.01 and $100, then someone with $110 at 5 seconds will win anyway.
The low time is needed for another person to not have enough time to react. A person can't react within 1 or 0.01 seconds at the same rate.

Answering your question: the time is rounded to a full second.

Btw, NYSE computers are not in milliseconds. That's not relevant. Logging can be in milli/micro-seconds, but that's a completely different thing.
