Real quick I'm now
launching 50 new auctions every night mostly OA flaps. My plea to the audience for podcast interview topics has yielded some good results. Now I need to track down exactly who would be the person to contact in regards to this.
This Weekend Is Loaded With Auctions
Dale Blomberg wrote back that he would like to see a show that covers a database program for keeping inventory of your collection. Ironically about 5+ years ago I met a very smart guy at the Dallas TOR who had almost perfected a very good system. I don't think he ever brought it to market. I suspect he was trying to get it perfect and that's about impossible to do with something like that. Does anyone have a lead on a collection specific inventory system (other than MS Excel or Access).
Jerry Case wrote back that he'd like to hear a show that sounds alot like Rick Obermyer's patch design class at NOAC. I don't know if that content would translate as well to audio only but certainly Rick would be a great person to interview!
Bruce Richardson wrote back that he wanted to learn more about how to build a niche specific website to list council and activity patches. Luckily for me he referenced three examples that he was aware of and kinda graded their look and ease of use. This has always been something I've had an interest in as my first website essentially had this as an element to it in the late 1990s.
My Boy Scout memorabilia store at
www.ScoutPatchHQ.com is loaded with thousands of patches for sale with free shipping. At launch it features the collection of Marty Wasznicky "the Silverfox Trader" being sold on consignment. Inside you can find Order of the Arrow, National Jamboree and Council Shoulder Patches.
