    Most of you probably have forgotten more than I know about computers. This may help others like me out though. When you search for something on ebay, say like a velocity stack, some people may not spell it the same or may have include an s on the end. Lots of good auctions are not found that way.
    The way to fix this is when you type in what you are searching for put an asterik behind it. Like this. Velocity* stack* ... That broadens the search to look for the way it may be spelled or in different tenses.
