Prime example of where CA being down meant a sale was lost. Looking for a TV and wanted to check a few stores (as the Argos site is terrible). Wouldnt work, so tried powercity and could check multiples stores. Bought it from them instead. @witnessmenow, hopefully you can get it working (and you should stick some google ads onto it to get some money )

@witnessmenow

I understand time is an issue for you re. updating the site, but if there's a cost involved would it help if some of us regulars here were to pool together to help fund that would that help? I know I'd be willing to throw in a few quid to help get it back up and running - as much for the stock element referenced above as for the bargains.

It's Argos's fault. They stopped paying a commission on items reserved through CheckArgos (something like that anyway).

Argos should have brought it off you. It drove who knows how much sales to them.

Especially useful for clearing old stock inventory.
Absolutely agree. I rarely buy anything in Argos since CA has been down.

@witnessmenow - thank you for all the time and effort you have put into it over the years.

I got the cordless hammer drill. Grand as a glorified screwdriver, but it's going to struggle really really badly with anything masonry wise. Which is no surprise.

No idea if the electric drill will be any good. Guessing not, but for the money worth a punt, even if it only lasts for one job.
