Domain name scammers - website owners beware
If you have a registered domain name, it is likely that at some time you will receive a notice from a self described "major domain name registrar" company from the other side of the globe. The pitch is always the same, a fictitious client is about to register all domain names with all available... Sign in

Script testers needed (it will take only a minute of your time)
I'm working on a little project for a web client where I am modifying an existing password protection script to give them a few rudimentary features they are looking for.

Ecommerce store anyone?
A few days ago I received an email from a company that has been working on a project with an almost identical scope as my Gomers Template project for osCommerce. I don't remember when or how we had crossed paths but they were offering me one free copy of their completed project. After downloading it... Sign in to see full entry.

Last call for a blog template
At one time I had a dream of creating a template library for Blogit but unfortunately my idea was derailed by a change in site format back in the summer of 2006.

Cleaning out the last of the blog templates
Once Blogit changed to a new format in late summer of 2006, this day was inevitable. Up until that point I had developed a number of different blog templates and had learned all of the little foibles of this unique blogging platform.

Blog templates for anyone that wants one
Unfortunately I do not have a blog template for anyone who opened their Blogit account later than since the summer of 2006. For persons with Blogit accounts using the old format, you would be surprised at how little effort is involved in making a nice template for your blog. I have the scripting...

Ya gotta love this deal
At the beginning of last year I started a sports blog. I need another blog like I need scabies but this was a little different, with the set up of blogging software on a webspace and the purchase of a domain name, there was the possibility of making a few bucks. I worked it for awhile, setting up... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes it's the little things that pay
If you are going to run a little webhosting service, it is important to build in efficiencies by organizing your products and having features that can easily be installed.

Beware of the web forum whores
In the almost 3 years that I have had my little web forum, at times it has been plagued with spamming idiots and web forum whores. In the beginning, I was inexperienced with this sort of thing and did not screen people registering for the forum well enough. There are a few lessons learned in a hurry... Sign in to see full entry.
