Re: Domain for sale if anyone is interested

It's going OK, thanks Peter. Trying to wind down, I've got to that age. scaling down whilst trying to leave everything in place to scale up again if the business finds its way into fresh hands has been harder work than I imagined.

Re: Pricing Software

Estlite here. Been using it for years. solid, reliable, works well, always kept up to date, great support.
Started with BBest which is the sort of lite version for pricing only without the database, that is also very good indeed.
