The point of no return
This blog's title is how I felt over the last couple of weeks. Just ready to release my latest version of my ongoing ecommerce store project, I ran into a huge problem. Attempting to add a fly out category tree, I realized that I had inadvertenly walked into quicksand. But in the end I have a viable... Sign in

Easily the most frustrating aspect of selling anything
... has to be dumb customers. Whoever the clown was who said "the customer is always right" could not have had any idea how many idiots would be empowered by this notion to speak their vacant minds. Here I am chugging along minding my own business getting my new template release ready, when I... Sign in to see full entry.

Another weekend spent writing code
This time I have no excuse for spending hours doing this other than my own mental afflictions. It was time to concede that my latest release of my osCommerce template (GT4) was not as successful as previous releases. So far the third edition (GT3), released in summer of 2008 has outdistanced all... Sign in to see full entry.

Just a few more tweaks
If I had the ability to produce a spiffy looking website I would be dangerous. Instead however, I will have to live with my web graphics being mired at a rudimentary level.

This is really slick - if I say so myself
I have a friend that owns a medium sized business with about 50 employees. About a dozen of these employees sit at computers processing orders and doing other company related work. He asked me if I could whip up a little script for him that his computer bound employees could use to time their coffee... Sign in to see full entry.

Wanna learn about Wordpress blogging software?
I have found that there is a substantial amount of web contract business to be had on the periphery of the mainstream. By being able to supply something usable and extendable in the way of a website in about the time it takes the PayPal funds to arrive, there will always be work. Someone, somewhere...

A blog as a business website
Just this past weekend I had a prospective web client approach me to set up a business website. His list of criteria was the usual list which I will translate for you from "clientspeak" into what it really means. -"I don't need anything special or overly complicated"...

A nice little free piece of cybor junk
As I wade through my collection of cybor junk with the intention of cleaning out the worthless and redundant, upon occasion I find things I had long forgotten about. Such was the case when I opened a chincy little software program simply entitled "Cover Software". It is intended to be used as a... Sign in to see full entry.

My download software is finished
I'm taking today off from writing code, my eyes are going buggy and its nice outside. After what can only be described as a 3 week bender, the beginnings of my cybor junk business are coming to fruition.
