Site Change Alerts

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

If your business depends on a website, then any time the site makes changes, is a time to be on the alert. The probability of bugs being introduced with site changes is high – we’ve seen this with several recent site updates. Even when the site update has no bugs, there might be a change that will impact you.

We’ll be introducing a support page to announce the latest news about site changes.

Any reports we get of bugs and site changes will be made available here.

In future, when you encounter any wierd behavior, check there before you send in a report. Chances are that you are not the first person to encounter the issue. If you don’t find it listed, then please send us as much detail as you can, so that we can verify the issue.

Customization

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

For those that need it, we do offer customization of all our products.

Customization is always based on the Pro versions of the products. We do not offer customization of the standard versions. So please don’t suggest that “it’s just a little change”.

We do recommend that before you commit to a project that will require customization, that you use the standard version. It works extremely well, and in 90% of the cases, it does what you need and then some.

If you really still need customization, the price of the standard version will be deducted.

The price of any bespoke project will depend on the exact requirements.

Two slots left

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Update: Slots are gone folks.

As intimated previously, prices are going to rise slightly. No apologies for this – given the results the software is achieving for you, you will still be getting the best bang for your buck!

Considering that you get to see it making $ before you release payment, we see this as a win-win deal for us both.

GAF -> Freelancer

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

The GetAFreelancer.com site has now switched to using their new domain name Freelancer.com. Cool name!

If you do follow any of the links here that produce a security warning, this is because the GetAFreelancer.com security certificate has been cancelled. Not a major problem, just edit the url to remove “geta”. The site hasn’t been subverted despite what your browser may be reporting.

We have many links that still point to the old GAF domain. We will not be updating these links unless they use https.

Freelancer is going to have to keep the old domain working for sometime so these will continue to work for a loong time.

orderscout mailing list

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

There is an orderscout mailing list that will send emails from time to time with announcements, and product related information. The GAF message board does not lend itself to sending messages to a group.

This is a strictly opt-in list. If you missed the request to confirm your opt-in status, take a look in your spam folder.

Maintenance Releases

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

Support Policy

Our support policy is very simple. If you find a bug, we fix it, no questions asked, no charge. Once we have made the fix, it will become available with the next maintenance release.

As mentioned in several places, web sites changes are not bugs.

Market data.

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

So you can now buy a pdf for $60 that tells you how to get Lendervend orders. So how does this work? I guess you print the pdf out, roll it up into a thin tube (how many pages can there be? 5?) and then use it like a magic wand. Wave it at the screen and poof – the orders come. Either that, or it should have a single sentence. “Buy orderScout”.

Well if that is acceptable pricing for a pdf, then it seems that we are going to have to either increase prices or risk being labelled as lousy quality based solely on price. Watch this space. (And good luck to the man with the secrets to sell).
