An interesting little project last weekend. A client had a flat file system that recorded customers, hardware and repair details. This data had to be brought across to a more advanced system, whilst removing any duplication of customers.
Quite easy really, however the system was written in Greek
All done with positive feedback…...
"He solved my problem and I believe is a proffecional programmer. He have the patient to explain my problem and change a lot of times the script that i need it for my filemaker project. He knows everything for filemaker. I suggest him and I will use him again if I will have another filemaker problem."

What is the difference between a website and a web application?
My take on this question is that it comes down to how the system is used. A website is generally a customer/general public facing web delivered site that generally acts as your electronic shopfront.
A web application is more interactive and takes, manipulates and delivers data in one form or another. It is simply an application that is delivered through a web browser.
Our first website is up and running. I've known Jon for a while and he recently went self employed, setting up Backdrop Education to offer educational consultancy and help.
We offer website build as well as web based business solutions (more on these to follow). We are also providing hosting and email services.
Interesting project for a client to merge PDFs and add some variable data. This isthe sort of thing I have been doing for the last 30 years using AppleScript, but today I will be doing it with PHP.
