    Big Grin Computer Dude: Will Work For Bandwidth

    Advertisements
    **UPDATED on post #29**

    Just kidding about the bandwidth... I really just need money.

    So, here's what I can do...

    I can set up web sites, manage servers, and get people started with web businesses, usually within a day.

    I can write software, but naturally this takes a while.

    I can also offer up use of my random signature script. (If you look at my signature, you'll see that it's a different image every time you refresh the page. I'm currently working on making a commercial version of my script, where people can manage the images directly, but until I'm done, I'm more than willing to set up random images for people manually.)

    I also do random other crap that I'm not listing here (troubleshooting, network setup, walking through computer repair over the phone), so if you need a nerd who can make Geek Squad feel insecure about their dorkiness, feel free to ask me.

    So, here are my rates:

    Website Support
    NOTE: These prices do not include hosting or domain name fees.

    Initial setup: $50 (Brand new sites only)
    Creating a set of 5 static pages (Front, contact, about, etc.): $200
    Creating an additional page after first 5: $20
    Installing a content management system (Wordpress, Joomla, etc.): $100
    Skinning a content management system: $100
    Fully customized skinning a content management system: $500 and a couple weeks.
    Installing a shopping cart: $100
    Skinning a shopping cart: $250
    Fully customized skinning a shopping cart: $1,500 and a couple weeks.
    Installing a message board (Does not include cost of message board software): $100
    Skinning a message board: $100
    Fully customized skinning a message board: $1,000 and about a month.
    Installing addons to a content management system: $50
    Installing addons to a message board: $100
    Repairing a database: $100 (Great value, but the database stays fixed, so terrible repeat business. )
    SEO consultation: $200 first time, $30 per month after
    Website backup:
    -- Files only: $10 per month weekly, $25 per month daily. Large sites cost more (1,000 files or more)
    -- Database and files: $20 per month weekly, $50 per month daily. Large sites cost more (1,000 files or more, or 4+ databases, or databases larger than 200 MB)
    -- Database only: Not gonna do it.
    Dealing with the web hosting company for you: Priceless

    Random Signature Hosting
    $10 per month
    There are a couple notes: You have to send me the images and be patient while I get the script customized for you (should take less than a day). I will not host images that are pornographic or that show violence, nor will I host images that violate the terms of service of SOS (such as very large images that are too large to normally fit in signatures). I am working on writing the software to allow people to manage their images directly, and when I release it, I'll be inviting you to try it before I open registration to the general public. Until then, you'll be able to send me the files through email or through Yahoo Messenger. Once I finish the software to automate this, current plans are to allow people to have 5 sets of 50 images each, but while I'm doing this manually, a subscription will allow you to have only 1 set, but up to 250 images in that set.

    I will also provide image resizing at a cost of $1 per image, but I will not resize fewer than 10 images at a time, due to paypal taking a relatively sizable portion of any money I get transferred to me. Also, if you really want extra sets before I roll out the software to manage the sets, I'll sell them for an additional $5/month each.

    Current projections are that it will take 4-8 weeks to finish the software.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here. If you would like to purchase my services, feel free to send me a PM.

    hm, so, is this a temporary thing or will you still be offering this in the future? cause I have some future plans and might be needing some help, but not for at least a few months.

    This is actually something that I'd like to start up as a business, rather than temporary, so yes, this will be something I'll continue to offer in the future.

    Just to add here... With the siggy script, he could do that with images other than little internet bumper stickers. You could use a bunch of pictures of your life, your family, etc.

    Control your breathing... try to squeeze the trigger just as your breath ends, but don't try to force yourself to hold your breath...

    Oh wait... miss with a rifle, or miss as in haven't seen us for a while?
