Got initial funding for Raklist Classifieds

I am quiet happy to get the initial seed funding for raklist , the seed just tried out the website and was impressed about it. He seems to be a person who will listen to developers and not impose their stupid financial and business ideology and spoil the product.

I wish things would not be messed up like postnplace, in it I was granted money by an investor, the funding was shaky from start, then it stopped in two months without almost no reason, then the reason emerged that me giving treats for my developers is the thing they hated, then when things became hopeless they hired family members of a top cop and threatened me to put me in jail. This time I seem to have got someone who knows about software. He clearly tried the product and asked many questions before investing and he is a person of good repute.

Raklist is now on a Beta-2 feature freeze, we have developed many things quickly, now we must improve things like speed, reduce code and make it more understandable, get more people to use it, see if we can catch bugs, automate tests and blah blah. Once all is OK we can put it into alpha load test it, and release as a product.

I wish raklist will bring good things to Indian classified industry and would help put consumer at top and make other ad websites play fairly. Many websites hide buyer and seller details and try to make money out of it, raklist will correct that. They offer complex forms to be filled for advertisement, well raklist was modeled after studying human brain, and hence will be more easy to use.

With things going well, all I desire now is to have a good lunch now.

I wish you to tryout raklist by going to raklist.com and give your suggestions about it.

$100 Classifieds Raklist Launched

Raklist

So, its another try to launch a application that truly benefit the masses. I have launched this classified raklist.com after getting annoyed with other classifieds websites like sulekha and olx.

Unlike other sites raklist does not collect your contact details and sell it to some one (in-fact it doesn’t bother who you are, just checks if you are a advanced species of monkey). Does not track your location, set cookies. Currently its uncensored and hence you have total freedom till SOPA / PIPA or Indian I.T act jumps in, shackles us, and force us to remove something.

Raklist is far simple to use than any other classifieds website, the only thing we don’t have is huge number people visiting it right now and huge bank balance. We will be rolling out features that no classifieds site has ever dreamed of and will be true patrons of Internet freedom.

I thank all hackers (well known and unsung) around this planet. They have made raklist cheap. It cost less than $100 per month to run it! I thank the free software foundation, Richard Stallman who by some probability responded to all my emails (thus increasing my enthusiasm about free software), the creators of The Pirate Bay and people who share in it. They made me download good books, with it I got the tech know how to build things. And I thank all who support information and software freedom and the culture of sharing.

If Raklist is successful it will surely contribute back to free software community.
