It is true. We have been building this thing for about 4-5 months. The fully operational "on eBay!" is going. Check it out and please report. One thing I know: people are buying things from this list. We get a report and that is a fact. We would like to hear how the new "on eBay" is working and always: any suggestions are welcome. www.bigscreenbiz.com/ebay

Interesting how they sold a 35mm print of TESS. That is against the ebay rules.

I love ebay. I'll check out your searches.

I know at one point they put a stop to print sales so Iw as surprised to see it. I don't know about current status as I am finding a lot of old prints. I thought Tess went very cheap!

Thanks/ it is a work in progress. I hired a very-very affordable Indian company to do the programming. 1/10 the cost of quotes from local and Maine companies. They're good but lousy on the communication. It is back up and running and seems to be working better.

As it is said: dots not feathers. I got quotes locally from web and software builders for this "on eBay" thing. Minimum was hige! And could not afford it. I did a search in google: cheap programming and got a guy in India as in the sub continent as in Bollywood. Hired a fellow who is quite good for about 1/5 of what I was quoted. So it is outsourced which conisdering how we outsend all of our movies to them is probably about equal. It's a novel experience for me and one which really illustrates what the web is doing. I have customers all over the world (another biz) and routinely now communicate with Europe/ China/India: it is really something.

I also went web programmer shopping about two years ago. I hired a NY firm to do custom programming for $22/hr (cheap) and come to find out, they outsource their work to India and simply put me in touch with their programmer in India... BAD choice! Not only are they in completely opposite time zones, so you miss a full day between e-mail responses, but I could rarely understand a word he said on the phone. E-mail communication was even worse. My site got really screwed up, so I hired a Seattle based firm who fixed everything and I'm still using even at almost 3X the cost. You get what you pay for in this area, please believe me. Pay the bucks for a good programmer. You may be paying by the hour, but if they're fast, you'll actually save money compared to someone who is slow and charges less. It also forces you to make changes yourself when you can to save money.

Well... either the service won't work with Internet Exploder on Win98, or there's still something wrong with it. Every link in there comes back to me with a server error page.

Maybe I need an Indian browser?

Hi/ just checked it at www.bigscreenbiz.com/ebay and it works for me. Anyone else having problems?

Aside from the comm gap and the delay of 11 hours difference the people did good work. We'll see if it is worth doing more with them.

I found the greatest problem to be the talk and language gap: we use all kinds of idioms and slang and they just do not get it.

Still nothing on my end, Mike.
After clicking the anrdoezrs.net link from your site, I get sent to a "qksrv.com" url that is just huge. It bombs there... an ad, maybe?

(edit)
Hmmmmmm... it works fine on my XP notebook.
