I see it quite a long list did you use any aid to cut down the work?
Does it run on RISC OS?

Are there any such RISC OS utilities?

I have a load of personal items LPs etc that I would like to put up but life
is to short to do them all one at a time!

I saw Auctivia.com recently it might help, though I couldn't see how they
made their money!
Having your own 'domain' was $6.95 p.a. & I think they get commision on
selling transit insurance but I doubt that would pay the bills!

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

It's not that long a list. I've manually added more stuff than that before.
However, this time I worked on a friend's recommendation and used some
'dark side' utility - although, to be honest, it's quicker doing it by
hand. The utilities are a bit cumbersome and expect you to do it their own
idiosyncratic way which is counter-intuitive.

Seems to work fine using Oregano 3 ;-)

I did contemplate writing one about a year back, but decided that it's just
as quick to just manually add stuff. Last weekends experience with a
utility just confirmed that point. It probably took longer because you
still had to type in all the data and select which categories etc., and
when wait for it to upload. Doing it one-by-one online is definitely more
straight-forward and logical.

Believe me, you'll find it quicker. Sometime back, I put about 150 CDs up,
and that was definitely quicker than a friend doing a similar amount on his

Hardly anything these days pays the bills! :-(

Unless you fancy designing the next YouTube!!
