• Cutting Edge

    I like to invent, to make use of brand new technologies and drive them to their limits.

    Why do the same thing over and over again?

  • Reliable

    Coding standards are usually defined for very good reason. I take pride in ensuring the things I create are always made to the highest standards, and maintain my code to bring it up to current defintions as needed.

    I agree with and support OpenStand, the mordern paradigm for standards.

  • Entertaining

    The internet should be a place of amusement and enjoyment besides one of business. A developer who applies his talents only to serious and austere tasks is bound to go mad.

    I love to ply my trade for the sake of whimsy. Coding is an art, and art should be fun!



Shared Server Load

As a customer of a shared hosting company, sometimes it is difficult to monitor the condition (or "load") of the server on which your web site resides. Some unscrupulous web hosts oversell their servers, packing more web sites on a single server than they ought to, causing degraded performance.

This app, Shared Server Load, simply allows you to monitor the overall load and up-time of the server that your web site is hosted on. It shows you the 1 minute, 5 minute, and 15 minute load average of the server, as well how long the server has been online.

This app works in conjunction with a simple PHP script that should work on just about any shared hosting account (it has been tested on several common configurations, most notably common cPanel configurations.) It does not require any special access, a typical shared hosting client should be able to run it without any trouble.
