Does the program automatically align with the AAA refresh times? b'c every time I turn it on and I have the 418 sec pause button checked, the program just straight up reads "Pausing 418 secs for next predicted restock," making it seem as if the attic restocked right when I started running the program. If this is the case, I'll be refreshing at regular 7 min intervals, but with 6/7 chance of not being aligned with the correct minute.
Next, Joe's attic program guide reads " Added sync with NST time for UBER accurate refreshing and for a logical buy method" . Does this mean that ideally we want to have the refresh interval at 53.0-53.4 (ish)? or is there a 1 second lag, as I read on another forum?
What refresh interval is safe? Obviously, having it refresh sharply between 53.0 to 53.1 for 100 refreshes in a row has a pretty good chance to alert TNT, but having it at default 48-58 is guaranteed to lose you 95+% of buys.
How is the timer countdown used by the program? Is it based off of my own computer's "ticks"? or does it take from an external source? my computer can't handle toooo much at a time, so if the counter is internal, it will be thrown off more than usual if I'm doing other stuff at the same time
Lastly, what browser does the attic/stealth pro play through? I don't want to be switching back and forth, esp if one browser will appear to be exclusively for RSing.
These questions arise b'c I let it run for 4 hours, and it only detected ONE UB item, despite having a list about 4000 items long.
Thanks for your time : )

No one cares about Joe.
I don't AA, so I can't answer your question. But be patient, as Joe will probably come around and help you himself later.
Yes, he's the boss and owns this site. He codes the most used programs here.
He also finds the time to help and answer any Qs he can regarding his programs (Why wouldn't he? You're a paying customer, ).
Just wait it out for a bit.
The program aligns with the Neopets clock (NST time) when refreshing, so it knows when it is :00, :58, :46, or whatever second you have set in the settings.
This program does NOT automatically start refreshing when there is a predicted restock. It will refresh every minute between the two times you have put in the settings as mentioned above. Why don't I have the program automatically refresh when there is a predicted restock? Because when I made the program, TNT kept changing the times so it was annoying. I basically made the most efficient way of refreshing via automatic means (in my eyes). Also, IF I DID make it catch only when there is a predicted restock, TNT would for sure change up the attic times on everyone to just ruin all of our fun. This has happened plenty of times in the past..
The program uses Firefox by default.
Any other questions or if I missed any feel free to ask away again.
ugh, I use Firefox to do homework on, lol. I'll be using FF for NP now, and Chrome for HW
Is there any way to keep it from logging me out in browser when I open up the program? What version firefox is it using?
Last question! how broad should our refresh range be to be safe? would 53-54 raise too much suspicion?
