Yep, it's not a good business plan. I didn't follow this thread too
closely, so I'm not comparing myself to the guy selling audacity on
ebay. But I started a few months ago selling open source / free software
thru the mail in Canada. I figure there no point really in sending stuff
 elsewhere when you can get it locally cheaper. Anyhow, I don't want to
get any further off topic. It's not a good business plan, well I mean
http://www.waglo.com/nattor/ certainly isn't making any money - but
that's decidedly not why I chose to offer this service.
