I’ve been working on a variety of custom software development projects for “private clients.” Recently – after moving into a new house and having my first exposure to a Homeowner Association – I’ve been doing a variety of HOA-small projects, including:
- Analysis of data from the Arizona Corporation Commission relating to HOAs. I have mailing list information if you want to contact HOAs or management companies.
- Possibly obtaining a RadarSign TC-400 and assisting HOAs and commercial properties with traffic speed studies. In many locations, city government doesn’t have the funding to respond to every complaint of “everyone speeds through here”, and the RadarSign’s data collection capability is a good place to start.
In addition, I’m partnering with a client to provide an analysis of corporate cell phone accounts (typically 20 phones or more on a single bill). Reductions in the range of 10-15% monthly are common, and sometimes 25% or more. See LowerCellBill.US for details!
Previous projects under consideration have been:
- Tower Light Kits, providing programmable LED illumination along the guy wires of small radio towers and similar structures.
- BoomClix, a Twitter reach analyzer that tells you who in your network really helps you get the word out.
- BrrFur, a configurable, wearable body cooling system/suit, worn underneath or sewn into costumes and uniforms worn in hot temperatures, and provides cooling (either by air or by circulated cool water). More here.
- GuestImpression, a meet-and-greet application for parties, conventions, and other planned gatherings where people can exchange information and more.
- YardSale.Auction, a web site providing an auction-like format
Some other projects we were considering, but never quite made it out of the “idea stage”:
- Coins-Worth, a coin sorter that analyzes your coins and selects out any of potential collector value. Think “piggy bank” or “a coin bag from an estate sale” and not having to go through them one-by-one — just load them, press Start, and it does the work for you! More here.
- HistoTemp, a temporary staffing agency for Histotechs, with online web support for linking up labs to staff. More here.
- A free-ware account viewing application that shows well-arranged details of active directory or local machine users.
- A paid group-management application that makes adding and removing Users from Groups easy! Can be used by administrators or non-administrators with ownership, privileges, or proxy access to groups. Put control of access to files shares in the hands of the data owners, without giving them full access to an Active Directory tool.
- A fund raising web site that combines the money-focused pixel-selling idea from Million Dollar Home Page with the social-media crowd-funding approach of Go Fund Me. Opportunities will be made available to select participants only, but can be either non-profit, for-profit, or individual requests.
We also do custom programming and technical assistance in a variety of environments. Contact me with your needs, and let’s discuss.
