Hi Karl, yes, the former is exactly what I'm thinking of. Then any of
us who look on ebay could email the listings to the site too. I'm sure
that enough of us trawl ebay and hopefully other sites, to find these
devices, that we could keep a pretty reasonable list going.

We could easily throw something like this together, probably powering
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
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
little more complex, .e.g. an application that automatically
trawls/searches ebay for archos jukebox products, and returns them?
