    The Plan

    Thanks Steve...that's something I should probably have a look at. Dan

    The Plan

    I have the same problem with the sessions table Frank. Every once an awhile my database backup will fail and it's caused by a humongous sessions table. I usually end up emptying it, generating the backup again and moving on. From the research I did the sessions are suppose to be deleted after a specific period of time but I guess it doesn't work in all server configurations. Or as you say...I could have messed up something along the way. Dan

    The Plan

    I'm inclined to agree and would also suggest that it be changed....as we get closer to a launch of something hopefully the BD will address it. Dan

    The Plan

    I agree with these, but who is going to code it? That's more a challenge than a plea Would it be better/faster to just introduce hooks or whatever is needed in core to allow developers/coders to package up basic modules like this that might be included in an "extras" package or folder? Dan

    Waiting...

    I found the existing system to be more trouble and work than it was worth so while I have set up a few attributes (more of a test then anything) I tend to set up separate items instead. Dan

    Waiting...

    I've often wondered that too. Stock control could be handled in the usual way. You'd just create a master/slave relationship and display the slaves as options on the product pages. Is there a reason that doesn't work? Dan

    It'll be interesting to watch this unfold. Dan

    Ouch...you're right about that. As you probably know we have a publicly funded Health Care system paid for via our tax system.....meaning our 1%ers help carry the cost and everyone has access to it. It's not ideal but works reasonably well. Dan

    That is why I was wondering what it was like in the big ponds that are managed better and have the tools to support developers. Is the grass greener there or it just the same? Dan

    It's not much different up here. Bricks and mortar are really struggling. You can try and get people to shop locally and they while they might generally agree for the need to do that. It just doesn't happen when it so easy and cheaper to do otherwise. Things are definitely changing and while we may or may not like it...it's reality. Dan

    That's probably the starting point...is the fishing better in a small pool with few fish or a big pool with lots of fish? Do you happened to know if the fishing is better, from a developers point of view, in some of the thriving e-commerce communities? It is probably more competitive but perhaps the better developers do well. Dan

    I know what your saying Gary (you've been pretty consistent over the years) and while I'm inclined to agree, I'm wondering how realistic it really is? I face similar issues and probably many of the other shop owners here do as well. My industry is dominated by DYI folks, who are always making their own equipment and other products, and who are quick to help others do so. It is tough on retailers and while there are times I wish it was different, I realize it is what it is - I can't control them. There are also changes in technology, disrupting the industry at an ever increasing pace, but again it is what it is - I can't control that either. All I can really do is to provide the best products that I can, at a reasonable price, and treat my customers the way I would want to be treated. Hopefully I have a sufficient number of customers who will continue to support me in that approach, or I can find a sufficient number that will, but I can't worry about the DYI folks or the technological changes happening around me.

    Nothing in your post Gary....it was clear enough. I was thinking beyond that and what the world would look like it if unfolded in that manner. Dan
