This article isn’t about WordPress so much, it’s about me. It seems at work WordPress is a taboo word. It’s greeted with gasps more often than not and I completely understand why. There are loads of alternatives, loads of better pieces of software and it’s riddled with a reputation of being vulnerable to attack. All of these are correct, but I still wanted to write about it to put my position on the software so if anyone confronts me, I don’t have to argue a case of why I think it’s both great, and terrible at the same time.

So it’s 4 months in on my new job and I’ve finally just launched the brand new Result Group website. It’s three solid months of development, hundreds and hundreds of tweaks, 1500+ lines of CSS and thousands more of XHTML programming and PHP. It’s built entirely by hand, no cheap CMS systems and no limitations on scalability. It also runs part of the site on WordPress (see the Rental News section).
Result Group develop world leading Rental Management Software and they needed a world class website to go along with that. The site was redesigned from the ground up by myself and there has been a lot of work chucked into a very fast moving three months. We finally went live last week and as of now, all hiccups seem to have been rubbed out.
It also uses GeoIP technology to direct you to the correct regional site (United States visit us.rentalresult.com while UK visit www.rentalresult.com).
It really was a mammoth task and one in which I’m very proud to have built solely.
Go check out Result Groups rentalresult website for their rental software and check out the design and jQuery loveliness.
Fancy riding 1,200 Miles across the UK starting from Lands End and finishing at John O Groats? No? Me neither!
These two guys are though (Adam Fisher and Oliver Frearson) and I felt obligated to build them a website promoting their journey. It’s in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and they are trying to raise £3000 (that’s only £2.50 per mile!).
Check out the website, visit their blog (which will be updated en route) and give them a bit of support.
If your feeling generous you can also donate by clicking the big donate button on the top left corner. Anything will do, even 1 pence, it all adds up.
Hate the stuff. Recently I have been doing a bit of server shuffling and clearing out loads of crap the server has built up over the years, one of which (unknown to me) is a shed load of spam. Let’s first have some figures of just how much spam hits this server every hour and every day (bearing in mind theres only 5 websites on the server): Continue reading Spam?
