MyCrap Version 1.1 now available for FREE.

When I wanted to sell my excess items I considered eBay and other sites. It is said that 30-40% of items listed on eBay never get a bid, so the thought of paying fees and not getting a result didn't appeal to me. So I created MyCrap.

MyCrap is a free program which helps you get your list of excess items together (including pictures) and produces the files so you can upload your information to your free hosting space on the internet. Most ISP's provide free hosting space and you can find many places to host your files for free on the internet.

The first time I used MyCrap I made over a thousand dollars selling my excess items. With Spring just around the corner now is a good time to start thinking about getting rid of some of those excess items. As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure. 

Now you have the ability to advertise your excess items for free, you can have your excess items available for others to see 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at no cost.

I hope you enjoy using MyCrap as much as I have.

Is it programme or program?

* The following discussion has been transferred from my forum as the forum is being retired. The main page for the dictionary project is If you wish to check the spelling of a word visit Word Check.*


This topic only applies to the Kelvin version of the Australian English dictionary. Both the words programme and program will continue to be in the full version of the Australian English dictionary.

I am currently reviewing whether or not "programme" should remain in the Kelvin version of the dictionary.

According to the Australian Oxford and Macquarie dictionaries I use as an authoritative reference, in Australia it appears program is now the primary spelling.

I am reluctant to change the Kelvin version as I feel programme is used in situations such as a concert programme, and program is used for computer program.

Although I personally am hazy as to whether it should be TV program or TV programme, but my personal preference would be TV program.

NOTE: This change will only apply to the Kelvin version of the dictionary.

I welcome other's thoughts.

VPS: Renée's home at Sinatra Way, Cranbourne 3977 is on the market.

Renée's lovely home at Sinatra Way, Cranbourne, Victoria, 3997 is now on the market.

For VPS members this is an excellent opportunity. Renée has listed her home with a local agent, but wants to also advertise on JustLocal (due to our great internet presence) and give VPS members an opportunity to earn a generous referral reward of $400. (Thank you Renée for giving VPS members the opportunity.)

If you know someone who is interested in purchasing a home in the Cranbourne area and aren't already a VPS member, become a VPS member (it costs nothing to join). Then if you refer a person via the online form and they buy the home the reward can be yours. (Do keep in mind the person must be a new referral and the person must not have already contacted Renée or the agent about her property.) 

How good is that! You help a friend find a home and can collect $400 just for chipping in.
