Hey buddy, wanna buy an OSCommerce install, just thirty thousand dollars!

, posted: 30-Mar-2009 13:03


Read it carefully - all you get for your 30 grand is basically the OSCommerce install and the design.  No stock, no customers, no existing name... it's not the business being sold, ONLY the OSCommerce setup!  Oh you do get a week "free onsite training", SCORE!

I'm sorry, but anybody who spends that much money on anything based around OSCommerce, which is quite possibly the largest pile of spaghetti since the great spaghetti eruption of 1906 (in which the entire town of spaghetti was buried beneath 3 meters of bolognaise), is a fool.

ew, what happened to the trademe pages in the last couple of hours, they have become very shiny!

I spotted this thought "ripoff" it's only a 1024px fixedwidth pages that sits in the middle 30% of my screen! though it's a resonable site.

Yes, $200, that's what comparable suites sell for!

What do you mean "spagetthi"? Have you been touched by the noodly appendages of the FSM?
