The guest lodge was looking for fresh and new age design to make their already unique and relaxing guest lodge stand out from the local market. Also a requirement was to keep the site fairly dynamic, full of images but also keep it optimised for slow internet connections in South Africa.
.NET 3.5 Form application for Windows.
This tool was inspired by working with the Magento E-Commerce stores. At the time in older version there was no real way to manage items in a timely fashion. Using the backend PHP took between 5-35seconds to process and was a painfully time consuming task. I made this tool that automatically exports XML data to a local Windows Based PC, where you can manipulate thousands of records in real time, use HTLM tagged description using a built in WYSIWYG plug in, image capturing with auto uploading features and linking to your items. Once you have done editing all the data you just had to export the XML data back to server and let the PHP code do its thing while you can carry on with other work.
Even though the tool is highly under developed and somewhat buggy it is used daily (i can verify this by using an anonymous built in java tracker that works with google analytics)
Over time this application is starting to evolve into a version 2 application that supports Magento API, Quickbooks IIF synchronisations and some more exciting features.
This business was sold in March 2011.
A short personal business venture into the world of Data Recovery.Site is now shut down. I have acquired market leading tools for data forensics/repair in hard drive and solid state drives. This was a personal undertaking and full commitment to this project would mean i would have to change my career objectives, which will not happen. It was highly subsidised by an ambition to learn some cutting edge information in data forensics. This service was real and I succesfully recovered data for many individuals!
This priceless experience not only helps me stand out more in my career profile but at the same time helps me identify low level problems that could occur in everyday IT situations. And thanks to some closely guarded industry secrets, where i was priviliged enough to get access to - I have the ability above others to fix and guarantee my reapair!
I built the website built by my self using a Flash template
The form application was developed in VB2008 using APS .NET 2.0 and ODBC with a SMS gateway build in
I still run a forum at forum.hddlibrary.com that is private and for members of data recovery centres only. There we share our techniques and in a combined effort try to resolve problems, that otherwise are a closely guarded secret.

I recieved two Raspberry Pi's early 2012 and decided to make a cheaper weather station that links to WiFi/LAN with a built in WebServer, database and API. It has been interesting venturing into the ARM domain. I hope to come up with my own addon that is compatable with all the extra pieces needed ...
I discovered Romotive through kickstarter. It is a robot that is supposed to be controlled via any audio jack from a smartphone. I got mine 6 months later and i was dissapointed to find out it does not work with EU smartphones. So as the robot is powered by an Atmel tiny861 MCU.. I decided to write my own firmware and implement a TTL inteface. I have made a seperate blog, approoved by by Romotive team them selves; I demonstrate how to hack Romotive, link to other hacks and I also added some cool gadgets.
Recent acquisiton of our own house has unleashed hundreds of possibilites to change things without worrying about our landlord having a heart attack. For months I wondered what would be a good project for me to work on with my Arduino prototyping kit...
During my business venture in the HardDrive forensics sector i was amazed to the price of particle counters. Which is ok i suppose for highly accurate laser counters for nano sized particles(bacteria detectors!) costing thousands but in reality anything smaller than 0.05micron will not damage a HDD directly. So i built my own particle counter for under £15.(Uses Infrared)
