I Love Wood Products

Niche is key. You’ll enjoy more success focusing on specific niches than you will by, “just doing business”.

Hammerlane Launched

I have launched the new website version of for Hammerlane Trucking Software. Currently, it is an XHTML/CSS tableless layout, powered by a PHP backend.

Commission Junction Datafeeds

I’ve been talking to my friend Greg from Web-Fu Design in Portland about finding ways to parse Commission Junction datafeeds and insert them into a mysql database.
