Good Boot seminar: will help you sell on eBay

Last week I mentioned the number of frugal Good Booters who were considering tuning up or upgrade their current computer rather than purchasing a new one. So I guess I should not have been surprised at the number of frugal Good Booters who have ask if our User Group would consider providing a seminar on selling their stuff on eBay or as an alternative, having a 3rd party sell their stuff on eBay.

Because of the interest I decided to poll our Good Boot bulletin board and news-letter subscribers as to whether or not there was enough interest to make it worth while for a professional eBay Educational Specialist to offer a seminar.

The response was overwhelmingly in favor of a presentation.

So I contacted David and Gina Rosenberg, two professional eBay Education Specialists. They agreed to provide a free hour long multimedia seminar on what you need to know and what you should consider before becoming an eBay buyer or seller. They will also explain the advantages of using a 3rd party to sell your wares. 

And as we always provide at our User Group meetings, there will be ample time for you to ask questions.

The April 9th meeting begins promptly at 6:00 PM at Lee Memorial Hospital Auditorium, Cleveland Ave., Fort Myers.

The seminar is free and open to the public. There’s no registration required - seating is available on a first come, first serve.

Now on to my pledge of providing useful free and inexpensive software.

* Revo Uninstaller (www. revouninstaller. com) is a freeware utility “everyone” should consider. It assists in uninstalling  software even if you have problems uninstalling or cannot uninstall them using Windows XP’s “Add or Remove Programs” or Vista’s “Programs and Features” uninstall.

Revo will also analyzes an application’s data before an uninstall and scans after using Windows uninstall program for unnecessary leftover files, folders and registry keys. The leftovers are presented for appropriate deletion. 

I use Revo for all my deletions.

* The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder (http://magicaljellybean. com/ keyfinder/) is a freeware utility that retrieves from your Registry the Product Key (CD key) used to install your Windows. It allows you to print or save your keys for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, Office XP, Office 2003 and Office 2007 family of products. It also can retrieve product keys for many other applications as well as product keys from unbootable Windows installations.

Here’s wishing you a Good Boot.
