For what this is, I'm sure it's an excellent module. But I was looking for a module that would automatically update with my auctions coming up for closing the soonest. In other words, I didn't want to have to manually update my module with item numbers. I wanted a module that would access my store and simply display the items coming up automatically. If this module ever offers this function, I'll be all over it!

This was, what I exactly needed and when I contacted the developer for enhancement proposals, he immediately adjusted this extension.
I see, he is someone who has excellent knowledge and I had the best support - and all that for a free extension - marvelous!
