Hi All

I slipped in one of my posts that I wanted to have a look at Sugarcrm this is 
a (professional Contact Relation Management database) well I got it loaded.

Had some initial permissions problems but nothing major I did muck up the 
mysql permissions as well but sorted those out too.

While this is a proprietary piece of software I think it is released as open 
source from sourceforge.net (at least thats were I got it from) I have to say 
from a salesmans point of view it is very good runs like a dream on my Suse 

I've only had it working for a couple of hours, does anyone know what the UK 
currency iso code is? at the moment it is set to US by default but you can 
manually change it.

It requires Mysql, Apache and PHP the instillation script is dead easy with 
next step through, if something isn't right it will show up red on the screen 
you just go back and make the required changes if everything is fine it shows 
up green.

They have a very astute purchase policy you don't buy it but pay a monthly 
subscription I.e. rent it, something I believe Mr. Gates is considering its 
one way of guaranteeing ongoing revenue.
