In the process of correcting a nasty little bug reported by a frequent user, I have encountered an underlying problem in the code pertaining to the use of AJAX. I am working overtime to move important pieces of code in to pages without AJAX functionality (All this means is that the entire page will make a round trip to the server as opposed to the current in-page updates). I hope to have these fixes done soon and updated, I am positive this will corect 90%+ of the issues some users have experienced.

Once again, I want to thank everyone for the wonderful feedback and support!

Drive Safe and Stay Happy,

I have received tons of response to my previous entry, with users pledging to pay for premium services or offering to make donations. The feedback has been wonderful and overwhelming. To respond I have now added a PlateWire donate page for US members.

To those members willing to give a donation of $25 or more, I will be granting a Lifetime membership status, which will include access to premium services (Once launched in early February) such as multiple plate registration and a broader view of statistics, amongst many other cool features.

Once again, thank you to all of you that have helped make PlateWire a great site, with so much more in store!

As things begin to take shape with PlateWire (Investor interest, funding, legalities, etc.) it is becoming quite obvious there is much to be done. Although PlateWire is currently covering it's own costs (Hosting and such), plus some, it still hasn't quite covered my salary, it will be a couple of months before it reaches that level.

Until then, I'd like to offer my services as a developer. If you or someone you know is in need of a Web Guru to develop a web based application, I'm your man!

Below you can find a link to my current resume. Please contact me if you need references or further details.

Resume (Word DOC)

PS: I am not looking for any permanent position, preferably a 1-3 month contract situation.

ABC's NightLine is working on a story based around sites like PlateWire. They captured some good footage of my basement office where PlateWire was born and asked some good questions. The show will air this Friday night, January 19th 2007.

Friday's Weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal had an excellent article title "The Snoop Next Door" (No transgression is too trivial to document online). Jennifer Saranow does a great job discussing web sites that have sprung up around similar concepts such as PlateWire.

What did you think of this article?

Your opinions of the other sites mentioned?
