When I'm not socialising, watching live bands in Faversham, sipping Champagne with gorgeous models, having high powered business meetings, working with artists, gossiping on street corners or partying in London, I do actually get some work done !

Skills and Expertise
  • SEO - Search Engine Optimisation This is a technique that allows a web site to rank higher on Google when someone searches using relevant keywords.

    One of our sites, RareList ranks #2 on Google for the term rare books using this technique.

  • Google SiteMaps These are used on large complicated web sites, usually database driven. They help Google's 'web bots' find all your content so it can be indexed and searched.

  • Secure Downloads Most of your content is supposed to be publically accessible, however it is quite possible to 'hide' content (music, documents, pages) behind pay-walls.

  • PayPal Integration Many sites have "Buy Now" buttons but it is also possible for PayPal to send payment details to your web site software so it can update things like user profiles, payment details, transaction logs, etc.

Open Source software is now becoming mainstream. We have used it for many years in all of our web projects.
  • Linux I have used many distros including Ubuntu, Fedora, SuSE and Mandriva.

  • Apache This highly advanced web server is used by many hosting companies and web sites including ours.

  • MySQL This full-featured online database is behind many dynamic web sites.

  • PHP Allows the easy meshing of standard HTML and PHP scripting to create huge dynamic web sites.

  • FreeBSD I use FreeBSD on my servers here.
