BrooklynBurgerBar - staged at
Brooklyn Burger Bar is in New York City. We don't make sales
to New york or Brooklyn, but when their ad agency needed a web site,
they called one of our associates who does cover that area. He called
us in to handle the task. As you can see, we have.
Bagel Boy -
staged at http://bagelboyonline.com/
Bagel Boy, a Classic Brooklyn Bagel Shop and Delicatessen,
needed a new website. Word had gotten around that we were easy to work
with, did good work and knew what we were doing, so we go the job...
BestCarDonation.org was built to enable folks who wanted to
cars to support children's charities. It's a new site, but their
interactive online donation feature makes it easy for donors to make
The American Public House Review is a
journal focusing on the community, conversations and stories inspired
by American Public Houses. It was begun in October of 2007 and now
contains over 90 archived articles about pubs, their atmospheres and
their unique histories.
After years of specializing in developing and managing online survey
systems, No Deadlines Networks has expanded to developing and
E-Commerce sites. http://shoppingcart.nodeadlines.net/ is a test bed
for OSCommerce Development and testing.
The Electric Forklift Repair Corporation - EFR - deals in
forklift and materials handling equipment. They needed a way to quickly
update their catalog of used equipment; their previous web master
simply took too long and charged too much to edit html pages and add
new equipment that was for sale. NDL created an extremely user-friendly
online equipment catalog for them which allows uploading of equipment
photos and textual details in seconds and is maintained by their office
staff. We are now building an entirely new website around that singluar
data-driven image-capable application.

Johnson-Walton Funeral Home has been serving the community
years - and many generations. The current management realized that
these days, they need a web presences to offer their patrons infomation
and other online service. They waited for a year for a franchised web
site organization to build their site, and when nothing happened, they
gave up and contacted a local web developer who they knew they could
trust... Of course, that's us. Watch for updates to this site soon.
Always undergoing updates and changes:
Frenchtown.com, serving the quaint Borough of Frenchtown, NJ began as a small community website in 1997 and has become the main source of up-to-date information for the local community, local businesses and for visitors to this little river town on the Delaware. It has received congratulatory messages from local, state and federal government representatives for the service it has provided through three major floods of the Delaware River.
And, through the efforts of the local Frenchtown Business
Association Frenchtown.com has received a NJ Sklylands grant to
information of service to visitors to the area.
http://frenchtown.com/floods/flood2006/index.html - This topical page generated 7,000 hits in the first week it was up. It served as a primary information source for the community - and residents and their families and co-workers - both at home and as far as away as Europe - during the time of the flood.
When the Frenchtown Business Association wanted to promote
member businesses - AND inform shoppers to the opportunities in
Frenchtown, they went through a number of "web site designers"
simply could not give them what they really needed to support and
promote their organization and its events. Finally, they they found a
"web site developer", hitched
their wagon to a star and joined Frenchtown.com as ....
This site began as a personal web page about one Vietnam Veteran's
experiences with the USAF 8th Aerialport Squadron's Mobility
Operations Branch in
Vietnam in 1970. These guys were airmen living a soldier's life at
remote air strips deep in the VC-infested jungle...
The web site quickly grew to represent the experiences of many
other MOB Team members who served from 1965 -1975 and has become the
defacto web site of USAF Moblity Operations in Vietnam. Initially, the
audience was just the small group of men who served with Mobility Teams
in Vietnam, but now the site's visitors include many Aerialport
Operations Veterans of Iraq as well...
Veteran's Forum has become a meeting place where many Aerialport
Vietnam Veterans have reconnected after more than thirty years!
This site began as an online presence for a small letterpress
printing museum. But the shop was named for a particular press, - the
classic Kelsey Excelsior press, which was built by a company
that closed its
doors in 1970 - after a hundred years. Since then, the world has
decided that ExcelsiorPress.com is the world's repository of
information on this classic little printing press, and since there is
always at least one for sale on eBay at any given time, this little web
site's traffic has gone through the roof.
Pretty much stable for now...
The client wanted something neat and new and state of the art. The
Flash features make this site far more interesting than the old one
Although this page represents
only a portion of the work we have done during the past ten years, it
should give you a rough idea of our capabilities.
For seven of those ten years, we had been comitted to one major
client - AT&T World Net Customer Care and building and hosting
websites was very much a part-time endeavor. Due to the great success
of the JAT SMART system (developed entirely by NDL staff), the contract
was renewed annually by ATT until the company was sold to SBC...
As Developers and Administrators of the ATT Survey System in
partnership with http://justASKthem.com,
we were responsible for developing all of the programs used in the ATT
SMART system, maintained the Sun Solaris servers that hosted the
system and managed all technical aspects of daily operations. Over
seven years, the system migrated to new servers three times - and each
time, the move was accomplished with ZERO down time... In fact, the
servers' uptime ran 100% for most of those seven years and update often
exceeded 350 days without any interruption whatsoever.
Below are more links to sites we and/or some of our team members
have done, or are working on. We will add screen shots and details to
them as time permits.
