Well, you could likely get away with calling it GeekBay and just hope that eBay legal doesn't notice.

As for the name, check here: http://www.businessknowhow.com/manage/perfectstore.htm. It's a long read but about 2/3rds of the way down you'll find out where "eBay" came from.

Hey Geek, can we expect any news on this module in the near future with 2.0 beta of GARS out the door now? I've been looking at PhotoPost Classifieds but would leap at the chance to have it integrated with VB using your script!

Suggestion for a name: GACS - Geek Auction Classifieds System. Keeping the family naming standard intact.

I cant commit to doing an an add on just yet. However I really dont think it will be very hard with the new custom fields.

Thanks for your reply Geek..looking forward to it! Currently sitting on the fence between Photopost and SR Classifieds but would really like to go with GACS if it ever sees the light of day.

If not though, would anyone recommened either Photopost or SR Classified?

Thanks again. Anyone have any idea what script this site might have been using (custom?):

I would like my site to be somewhat similar to this in functionality and layout.

How about Geek Billboard Auction Enviroment (Geek BAE for short). You don't have to spell it the same way.
