We could easily throw something like this together, probably powering it
by something like php, or asp.
In my understanding of this concept:
'when someone on the list is selling something we could provide a form
on the rockbox site where they can say when its going on, how long for,
and a short description + a direct link. whilst its being sold on
ebay/trade-it/whatever it would appear on a list.'
Is this something you're thinking of? or are you looking at something a
little more complex, .e.g. an application that automatically
trawls/searches ebay for archos jukebox products, and returns them?
