EDIT: I got a huge response to this, much bigger than I expected. Im going to take down invites for the moment as im just spending too much time replying to pms!
Myself and BK will hopefully work on it over the next few days and get it prettied up, but the next thing on my todo list is increasing the speed.
Thanks for the interest
I've been working on a simple Argos stock checker this week as a proof of concept. I'm not a web developer so its far from pretty but it does do the job.
Its seems a shame to have it fully functioning (I think!) and it not to be used.
Its way too alpha for public release but if some people want to PM me I'll send them a link to it.
Thanks to black_knight as well for some help starting off.
If it can't check HP Touchpads, then I don't wanna know
I'll send you a PM, Jeez if I see another hukd.ie link from Basq for something that I probably don't even need from Argos but isn't in stock ANYWHERE!!!!!!
It seems anything reduced in argos is not in stock at all
witnessmenow, I pm'ed you for the link, did you get that PM?
To be fair.. I check more-often-than-not if something is in stock near me.. and if it is, I post it.
I'll left out numerous Argos deals I couldn't find stock of.. but some do creep in.
Do me a favour basq keep posting somebody is bound to get good value until argos pulls the deal which is what I think happens . I could have done with that lawnmower
Well, witnessmenow's page should put an end to those products that can't be found anywhere.
But people are so quick to dismiss a product as being out-of-stock everywhere if it's not in their local (or nearby).. there's a deal up on HUKD.ie somewhere where some guy dismissed an Argos product as being of stock everywhere. I then posted a screengrab of it in stock in 2 stores I think.
EDIT: Aha.. here it is.. but user deleted his comment after that.
PS - witnessmenow, I'm a web dev so if you want some help in sprucing up the page a bit.. I've no problem with helping out.
Awh, im touched, though ive not really contributed enough yet. Ill see if I can do anything tonight, once I get my hands on that code of yours!
At the very least, ill make the page..... less ugly.
Hi guys, just back from a trip into town and I have over 20 pms!
I'll respond to them now.
Don't worry Basq, if nothing else it's keeping hukd.ie going with the help of a few offers from the hut and I'm sure there is some stock in the Connaught Stores....
Great efforts from all, just Argos are damn annoying!
How dare you, its got early 90s charm!
They must not like seat covers in Killarney:
Works quite well witnessmenow.. I'm impressed!
[nerd] Depending on how the script works, you could possibly use Ajax calls to populate the stock in a individual store as it iterates through them.. just so you don't just have that wait of 30 seconds. You'd then see each store populate every second or so. [/nerd]
Just a suggestion!
