    Magento sold, again

    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
  8. @MrPhil I hear you Phil. I just don't agree. I think the tough decisions could easily be taken by the Team Leads and/or Project Team. In any case it is what it is. Dan
  9. @Antonio García What is means is I'm sadden by the turn of events. Let's leave it there. Dan
  10. BD?...I trust you're kidding....didn't we nip that in the bud already? Dan

    Forum Guidelines

    This comes from the osC guidelines and is probably something we need to adopt here. We will have differences of opinion from time to time (it would be rather boring if we didn't) but in those instances we need to simply agree to disagree. Posts should be constructive and everyone should be treated with courtesy and respect. We're all grown ups here so lets act accordingly. Dan

    Is there a good example out there that we might model ourselves after? Dan
