So I was looking on craiglist.com looking at possible side jobs for .Net and such. Then got to wondering, how does someone know that I can actually do what they are asking versus someone who's just starting out and just trying to get the work for the money and doesn't really know what they are doing?
Then I got to thinking of all the sites I've worked on and all the internal web applications I've done, back since 1998? But even before then when the "Internet" was all new and everyone made neon color sites in 1994 give or take a year, I was making html static sites...
So note to whoever reads this. I AM NOT A FRONT-END DESIGNER. I am a back-end .net developer. I can make the page work and do what it does, and well. I can not make the page look pretty and pleasing to the eye. I can get close to what I think it pretty neat with some new cool Ajax controls, but always best to have someone else, who's sole purpose in life is to make things look good touch the pages I create.
So here we go... SOME OF the sites I've worked on. Now these sites, most of them were designed by someone else, I just made them work.
Edit: This page is not in any specific order, I add stuff as I remember.
Web TimeKeeper Add-On for Track-It!® Help Desk Management System (2001-2002): When I was at Masonite, we used were using a piece of software called Track-It. At the time it was owned by, and originally coded by, Blue Ocean. Which later was bought out by Intuit and then re-purchased by Numara Software company. Well back when Blue Ocean owned it, I had developed an add-on to the Track-It web application version of their helpdesk software that allowed manager to track their employees through the day. This add-in worked so well that I was able to package it and sell it to a few clients of Blue Oceans. They sold it through be me because they had some clients that wanted this feature but it wasn't included in the product itself. This product was developed using Classic ASP to provide up-to-the-minute tracking. I had sold it under the name Digital Goblin, a site a friend and I made for doing side jobs. Was a really cool app. Then Track-It upgrade a version and went .NET they were supposed to release an API that never came and so the project faded away.
Internal Verizon Web Application OSI Server Support (2005): Worked on an internal application for Verizon that helps manage their servers. Large back-end MSSQL database.

Pretty large application, it was started before me, and when I was contracted there for 6 months I slowly add new features and functionality.
