    A couple of projects worked on were an online case management system for a County government and an online, highly available power outage reporting system for the State wide power utility company. Microsoft ASP and ColdFusion with Oracle database were the chosen technologies. We are told that the ColdFusion power outage reporting system is still in operation. We are pleased.

    Prints.com and Others

    Many were asking for help with Internet related projects. This lead to the incorporation of Mega Blue Wave, LLC. This “moon lighting” lead to many successful and exciting projects, included from that era are Prints.com and SafetyBright.com.

    Web design, PHP development, Internet software development of image manipulation and an aggressive SEO strategy ensured that these projects put us on the map of Internet Marketing. We still use our Prints.com SEO work as a brag-right when showcasing our SEO work to prospective clients. After all ranking #1 out of over half a billion results on the Search Engines, for a super competitive keyword, is something to brag about.
