So I didn't even bother looking this time round - but I did want to make it easy to give stuff away. Likewise Craigslist in the UK is an equally bad user interface here as it is in the US, but doesn't seem to be used much (particularly locally).

Ah right, at least one step forwards then I hope - the *principle* of Freecycle is awesome. It's nice having a single place to list both stuff you're flogging and stuff you're giving away though.

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
-- the sqlite blessing
