    Now for street view!
    I've been investigating that, seems quite hard though.

    Have to figure out a way to convert WoW's internal coordinates to Google Maps coordinates first though, so I can get Flight Paths, Taxi Paths, Area Tables and ores/herbs etc working.

    Though you must admit, Opera is like a fallen war hero. It did amazing things but nobody seems to care.
    There's depressingly many examples of that in this industry. Just look at Smalltalk for a great example.

    Edited:

    Also if anyone here is a CoffeeScripter, would you be able to help me out by kicking the tyres of this little thing I wrote?

    https://github.com/charliesome/coffee-script-pure

    It's the CoffeeScript compiler running entirely in Ruby. I'd really appreciate it if you could pass a few scripts through it and make sure they compile properly. Let me know if you have any problems!

    Try pass 4chan X through it, they have the original coffeescript somewhere

    Besides having a two column left-nav layout and a dark background, those sites really have nothing in common.

    The grey background on "Why FTPbox?" needs something more to match up with the other one. Also your "Spread the word!" on Chrome / Windows 7 is super hard to see, I only see a subtle blue outline(probably drop shadow). Add a bit space between that and the social icons too

    I was talking about the image I posted here, nevermind the site, it's fucked. I put the link so you can compare how the title looks now and how it's gonna look.

    Hi,

    If anyone is interested I am going to hire a python dev next month to write the back end to a new licensing system.

    About you:

    * No design skills required (purely json interface)
    * Proficient in python
    * Writes inherently secure code (The system will be used by the backends of banks and the US Navy)
    * Has experience with the google app engine (and relational databases)
    * Can dedicate a reasonable amount of time

    About the project:

    A json api to be integrated within an existing google app engine app. The logic must be flexible for additions later and must be fully commented.

    There is two parts to the API:

    an admin api (for me and other admins to change settings and alter accounts)

    a partner api for the partners to access.

    Two python devs will be hired and they will check each others code for security. Make no mistake - security is essential.

    The rate:

    I understand that I haven't given much info about the project but all will be revealed before anyone has to agree anything. I will pay 150 for the completed project.

    Why?

    View source: http://nedp.nps.navy.mil/ipad

    Now that we are clear about the Navy using it. And it isn't a complicated job so 150 isn't unreasonable at all.

    Edited:

    The system is literally putting things into databases, a bit of hashing, reading from database and using the GAE authentication, oh and the GAE emailing system. Not a lot of work.

    I could do it in PHP in about an hour but have had no experience with GAE and little with python so I'm outsourcing it.

    Sorry but your contact draft looks horrendous. Drop the two column layout. Also you never want your email in plain text on a website that is in view to the public (bots and what not).

    Include a subject field, and hell even think about a captcha.

    If I was going to make your contact page for you, I would have the actual form slightly narrower then your main section, and nicely spaced. Plain, simple, like the rest of your site.

    Ohh, and think about positioning your site to the right with like a 100px margin on the right. With the large name on the left, it looks strange to be on the left side of the browser, at least to me.

    As I mentioned it will be checked for security. It is simple enough that I can't see how they could cock it up save for not sanitising data.

    This part of it isn't high profile - think of it like a brochure printer for the CIA - obviously they want it grammatically correct but there isn't any risk involved. The worse that could happen if the system was breached is that a message could be sent to a navy or bank guy. just like a message could be in the brochure. The sensitive part is handled by me and me alone.

    what I mean is, when it comes to web development or graphic design, it doesn't matter how complex the actual project is, if the employer is a big company/organization, the designer/developer usually charges more.

    150 for an hours work is what I would consider a high rate. I suggest you convert 150 into your local currency before commenting on the rate for an hours work.
