Website design and maintenance

The reasons people want websites vary greatly. Some want a personal blog while others want a landing page for their company. Some want a simple brochure presence on the Internet while others may want a complex student registration system or financial transaction processing system. Whether you are looking for an association membership system, an e-commerce site or a simple splash page, I can craft a site for you that will meet your needs, exceed your expectations and be surprisingly kind to your budget.

Did you loose your previous webmaster? Is your site broken? Do you need a bunch of maintenance performed on your site but have no one available to do the work? I will diagnose your site's problems and have you back up in great working order much faster and far more affordably than you might imagine?

Do you want to add a secure payment gateway through PayPal, complete with PayPal setup? Do you want to start marketing to your customers using MailChimp? Let's get going.

Database design and maintenance

A dynamic website requires a responsive database. Some database needs may be met by utilizing the built-in database offered by WordPress, Joomla or MailChimp. Others may require a custom-designed purpose-built database.

All data-centric websites begin with a determination of what output is needed and what input is available. The website is just a mechanism for capturing, maintaining and displaying information, and conducting transactions.

Think about your last purchase on Amazon or ebay. You provided input in the form of a search. They provided information back to you in the form of inventory that matched your search. If you liked their inventory, you might have put it in your wishlist, your shopping cart or you may have gone to another site to comparison shop.

Data-centric systems design is a project that requires a combination of technical and communications skills along with the ability to manage complex projects.

Whether you need someone to join your project team, run the project, or provide the complete package, call (561) 632-8789 or contact me by selecting "Contact" from the navigation menu above.

Laptop, Desktop and Desk-side computer Repairing and Re-purposing

The old cast-off PC that is sitting in your closet may be a treasure to someone who cannot afford a new one. The PC that you have been using with Windows XP is now exposed to an ever-increasing number of exploits. You have an old PC that no longer works for you, but your children could use it for homework if it could connect wirelessly or had faster performance.

I repair and re-purpose laptop, desktop and desk-side computers.

Repairs can range from adding memory and upgrading disk capacity to diagnosing and repairing failures.

Re-purposing can range from salvaging parts for use in other machines to upgrading components and operating systems.

Networking Installation and Maintenance

As anyone who has ever wanted to connect to the Internet has learned, there are a lot of details to attend to. You have to:

  • Choose between a cable provider and a phone company
  • Decide whether to use vendor-supplied networking equipment or buy your own
  • Arrange for installation of service to the building
  • Connect the modem to the service
  • Connect the router to the modem
  • Connect devices to the router (wired and wireless)
    • Computers
    • Tablets
    • Smart Phones
    • Printers
    • DVRs
    • TVs
    • shared disk storage (Storage Area Network)
  • configure secure file sharing between computers
  • configure firewalls and antivirus protection

I can work as part of your management team to select and implement the best solutions for your environment. If you or your management team "just want it done," I can do that too.

Technology Re-purposing

The wise consumer remembers the old adage, "waste not, want not." This applies as much to technology as to any other consumable or luxury item.

Most of us would like to have the fastest, newest, shiniest, .... toys. But, we also want to be intelligent consumers and make the best use of our scarce resources (including money).

I recently completed a re-purposing project for a local small business. They had six desk-side PCs. They were all running Windows XP, had 40GB disk drives, and were used exclusively for browser-based applications.

With all of the patches that have accumulated on Windows XP over the years, the PCs had slowed down to the point they were difficult to use.

By replacing Windows XP with a light-weight Linux-based operating system, the same browser-based applications became quick and nimble, and the computers will continue to serve the owner's business needs.

Whatever your technology problems, consider re-purposing rather than replacement. It just might make sense for you.
