  • Since this still gets heavy traffic here on Slideshare, I want to point out that the warehouse was developed in 2003; I've long since left Goodwill and don't support it any longer; and I hope that viewers are just getting ideas about what can be done with a little bit of time and PHP/MySQL, not looking at this in anything but a historical context!
