Our History; humble beginnings helped lay the foundation for solid programming.
In 1981, I purchased my first personal computer. Not satisfied with the limited programs available back then, my friend, Marty, and I learned Basic programming and started getting creative. My computer had an 8-bit processor, 64Kb of RAM, and no hard drive, so our programs had to fit on a "Floppy Disk!" To give you some perspective; the average flash drive (32Gb) would hold more that 62,000 times the information contained on the floppy disks of that time. we quickly learned that due to the constraints of such a limited environment, our programs had to be lean and clean. Over the years I have learned several more computing languages, but my original philosophy of "lean and clean" programming remains the guiding principle for our websites. Today, everything is hand coded, so there is no added template language to slow page loading and waste memory. We use a blend of HTML, CSS, and Javascript to create dynamic sites that look good on any browser, and PHP with MySQL ensure server-side processing that keeps everything loading quickly.

What we offer

Customer Service
Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." We believe that the measure of a company is not how well it does when customers are satisfied and business is good, but how it responds when customers are dissatisfied and mistakes have been made. Our promise to you is to not only make you happy the service we provide but keep you happy with your website as well.

Every page we deliver is a testament to our commitment to quality, and we are not happy until you are happy.
