Scrivs Sends Traffic Thru the Roof

Published in General on Thursday, August 19th, 2004

Traffic moving towards the roof as Scrivs gives us a nice review.


Thanks Scrivs for the nice review and suggestions. Heck, maybe we'll even get vaulted ;-] (granted the css is a mess)

Who are these turkeys?

Lacking an about page (we've been busy), so... We are a small team of four people, and I (see sidebar) get to do all of the writing. With that hopefully burnout doesn't show up too often (four heads being greater than one and all that).

What powers the site?

The site itself is powered by a homespun script, of which I have rambled about occasionaly.

Thanks for stopping by

At any rate, welcome new visitors, have a look around. If you have anything to say, feel free to comment here constructively if you would like to, we're open to suggestions. Thanks for dropping by!

Comments and Feedback

Glad to see I could do my small part. I definitely wouldn't say the traffic I generate would shoot your's through the roof, but I can always guarantee at least 10 people your way.

Hey, you can't go counting yourself twice just 'cause you popped by twice in one night :-P we make way on the lounge??? :))

Lounge? It left the other day to get coffee and bagels and hasn't come back yet...

The latest from my personal website,

SiteUptime Web Site Monitoring Service

Sitepoint's web devlopment books have helped me out on many occasions both for finding a quick solution to a problem but also to level out my knowlegde in weaker areas (JavaScript, I'm looking at you!). I am recommending the following titles from my bookshelf:

The Principles Of Successful Freelancing

I started freelancing by diving in head first and getting on with it. Many years and a lot of experience later I was still able to take away some gems from this book, and there are plenty I wish I had thought of beforehand. If you are new to freelancing and have a lot of questions (or maybe don't know what questions to ask!) do yourself a favor and at least check out the sample chapters.

The Art & Science Of JavaScript

The author line-up for this book says it all. 7 excellent developers show you how to get your JavaScript coding up to speed with 7 chapters of great theory, code and examples. Metaprogramming with JavaScript (chapter 5 from Dan Webb) really helped me iron out some things I was missing about JavaScript. That said each chapter really helped me to develop my JavaScript skills beyond simple Ajax calls and html insertion with libs like JQuery.

The PHP Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks

Like the other books listed here, this provides a great reference for the PHP developer looking to have the right answers from the right people at their fingertips. I tend to pull this off the shelf when I need to delve into new territory and usually find a workable solution to keep development moving. This only needs to happen once and you recoup the price of the book in time saved from having to develop the solution or find the right pattern for getting the job done..
