Hey, don't let my experience discourage anyone from taking on this project!

Brian has offered to do the ongoing monitoring of auctions for the rest
of time. Which server-side web developer out there is willing to
evaluate 3 to 5 of the tons of programs that cost under $100 to see
which ones suck and which ones are great?

Oh, wait, until the webmaster declares whether we must use ASP, or PHP
or JSP we can't do the evaluation. Which backend database will our host
support? That will narrow down those tons of programs to a much smaller
number. Now someone has to find a good product from that reduced pool.
Only choose a product that's been out for at least 3 years and has 100
installations - pool is even smaller. Only choose a product that has an
active support forum so when things go wrong we can fix them. Pool got
even smaller.
