There’s software, and there’s software.Â There’s coders and there’s coders.
I’ve just had the misfortune to buy a complete piece of junk in the shape of a PHP script.
I’m so annoyed I’ve asked for a refund, which I think I’ve done maybe 4 times ever including this one.
The reason I’m so annoyed is because there’s a guy out there who I respect for what he does, and he’s had a brilliant idea – this is new.Â The idea is so good I bought resale rights to the script and took out a domain to re-sell it through.
It’s that good an idea, and I wish I’d thought of it myself.
The script though, is pure junk.
After spending 5 or 6 hours trying to get it to work, I took a look at the site I’d bought it from which was supposed to be (or so I thought) an example of the script in action.
When I viewed the source of the page, I found that instead of the site using the script it was selling, it was actually using Sid Hale’s RAPS to accept PayPal payments and do the upsell.
I was both disappointed and angry.Â Hence the refund request just to express my disapproval really.
(RAPS is great BTW.)
Now if I feel like that, what are other people going to think about it?Â Not good news at all.
But every cloud has a silver lining, and I’ve been having a chat with David, one of my developers and his reaction was “I’ll do that” and I know he will.
So he’s going to write a usable version of the script some time in the next month or so.
No, I don’t think it’s fair or appropriate to say what it is, but you may realise at some point in the future when I announce it.
