A little extra decoration will give customers that warm, fuzzy feeling they need to open their wallets and bid a little higher, or so the theory goes. At the very least, frames may help one?s auctions look more polished and inviting. For a fee, eBay?s Listing Designer upgrade does this for everyone. But using the pre-designed templates everyone else uses is not exactly the best way to make one?s listings look unique. Instead, one needs to take a few minutes to design one?s own and save the fees for buying more stuff on eBay.
XAML is an XML dialect, so the paper uses a lot of angle brackets throughout. In this paper, one will have a look at the most important XAML elements. It is virtually impossible to cover them all in a book of this size, but one will present as many as possible to let one dive into XAML with maximum speed. If one has already worked with XAML for WPF applications, one already knows most of what is covered in this paper.
Many sellers resort to hijacking other sellers photos for use in their own auctions. The problem is that photo theft can be extremely damaging, and not so much because of mere copyright law. A big part of any items desirability is its perceived uniqueness. The more uncommon an item appears to bidders, the more valuable it becomes. When bidders see the exact same photo in two different auctions, not only are the implied scarcity and value of the item severely weakened, but the integrity of both sellers becomes suspect.
This paper published by Oreilly explains the biggest flaw of eBays feedback system is the risk of retaliation. The risk of retaliation also reminds people that they are responsible for their own words. If there were no consequences, people would leave negative feedback with abandon, and one would have even more problems on hands. One leaves negative or neutral feedback for someone and they will - without considering the circumstances or whos at fault - do the same. That is the fear, and that is the reason why many people simply let problems slide.
Once an auction has started, one can normally change most aspects of the listing. But its also possible to submit a revision using the API. A developer can start with a simple script, reviseitem.pl, that will let allow changing any aspect of an active listing. To use the script from the command line, include only the item number and the fields which one wants to change.
Smart searching involves more than typing a couple of words into a text box and clicking the Search button. Sure, a simple search gives a list of results - but thats what every other shopper on eBay is getting, too. To find the bargains others miss is a challenge. This paper illustrates the basics of searching. The paper explains how to find the hidden bargains that other shoppers miss; how to comparison-shop for the best deal; how to avoid impulse buying (and the buyers remorse that goes with it); and how to snipe (win an auction at the last minute).
Management tools can make or break an integrated server product, especially one from Apple. From user creation to the management of share points and services, the maintenance of a server can be quite onerous. Add to that the complexity and breadth of a product like Mac OS X Server - plus its wide feature set and audience, and the diversity of its deployment scenarios - and the outlook only become more daunting. To help surmount this challenge, Apple provides a variety of graphical and command-line tools designed to simplify the deployment and management of Mac OS X Server.
This paper published by OReilly Media explains about Web Development. The author explains that Java has arrived on the Web with a vengeance in the form of JavaServer Pages (JSP) and servlets, and it takes a look at how to create this using Eclipse in this paper. To do that, the author uses the Tomcat web server, which is the Sun Microsystems reference implementation for both JSP and servlets - and it?s free for the downloading.
