I had answered the original poster off-list.
In short, I have done a live auction for another (non-Scouting) list I am
on. If you have the ability to use CGI scripts on your server, it is easy
to install a script that will enable visitors to complete a short form and
have their bids appear on the page in realtime.
(Of course, they must have a browser that can handle forms...)
Contact me *OFF-LIST* for further information, that way we do not clutter up
this list with patch-selling type messages. <g>
