Perhaps the sprite boy himself was watching from Canada and objected to them.

The Free Willies thread was shaping up nicely into a discussion of, ahem, legal "performance-enhancing drugs". Now its disappeared.:(

You should be careful with free willies... the police aren't entirely understanding, but that's an episode best forgotten by all involved :o

That's also illegal in this country. Besides, it can be very messy, especially if you're not careful with the shovel.

Hi Scotspine,

hey congratulations on the third sale of your software and may you sell much more

No, nothing has come from the website yet, but as I have said before, creating the website is the only effort I am making at the moment in developing the consulting direction, 1 man band contracting is good enough for the time being, but if someone sees the website and makes an enquiry then of course I will pursue it - but I won't invest time in developing that side, like cost of sales, time off work to try and win business etc

however as I have said before, the real planb, which really has a product, as opposed to selling it consultancy nonsense, the plan is progressing week by week, and with a little luck there will be a major milestone around the end of the year, and if that milestone happens successfully I will be a very happy man.

I wish you all the best with your projects

Milan.

it would appear that you have invoked the same low-risk approach to developing your business as ourselves. we always maintained that we wanted a business model that allowed us to walk away from it without significant financial loss or exposure. that has been the case [so far]. to be honest, we don't want sales to grow too rapidly. the system is reasonably extensive and really requires to be used in anger in a couple of sites to make sure that it behaves itself before we find ourselves in the position of having to support the application from hell on 30 different sites.

your plan b sounds intriguing.

I think you are absolutely correct about controlling business growth, too many companies fail because of the ensuing chaos caused by rapid business growth

one day I'll share the details of my plan b and then you will see it is not intriguing, nothing new, no re-invention of the wheel, only re-application of the wheel

good luck with yours, if all else fails we still have our .Not

Mind you they are all from folks looking for work or our Asian friends asking if we can send them some (free) manuals :(
