Seems like the Blacklist compare to Barter.vg function is broken :(

I'm sorry, due to a failure to fix another bug a few months ago, I lost a lot of motivation.
I guess the only way to save Lestrade's as of now is to move it to my main server. But it'll be several times slower. Of course it's very fast right now, so the difference may not even be noticeable. I don't know.
I'm still pledging to keep it online at all costs (if it ever goes offline for more than a few hours, make sure to contact me on Steam or elsewhere and tell me), so you can have a working website in case Barter goes offline. (Although I only use Lestrade's as a library management tool now.)

That's all right. I mostly use it for that purpose too. I assumed Barter doesn't have an API and you were doing scrapping, which is prone to break at any time.
You can get very cheap VPS, but the problem is always maintaining the servers. Even with automation, upgrades need to be made.

Absolutely.

Regarding VPSes, I don't really see the point of paying for it for a website that doesn't make me any money. I can only host it either on my 'pro' website (which has limitations on its MySQL databases so it's unlikely), or on my own computer (I'd have to request a static IP for that though.) I'm not looking forward to that, either, as generally my LAN is completely separated from the Internet.

FYI, I was finally able to fix the bug that stumped me a few weeks ago and caused many multiple copies of bundles to show up.

I've also removed all of the duplicates, and cleaned up many of the bundle errors.
Unfortunately, ITAD bundles aren't as 'clean' as those at Barter, but I clearly want to rely on ITAD only for these, because it allows for an extra source.
(Also, I don't want to scrape everything from BVG when I can avoid it, really.)

Done cleaning up bundles! Phew...
