SEO gets something of a bad rap these days. But that's only because of bad advice dished out online or by self-proclaimed 'digital media strategists' or some other daft name.

But SEO is a powerful marketing method. We've just sorted a campaign for a client that is cost-effective and well-researched to make sure we target the right keywords for their business.

We've just finished coding a complete custom web application for a client that integrates with an existing booking solution they use.

This app has been built specifically for the vehicle rental market and allows them to easily perform key tasks which they just could not do with off-the-shelf software. We're pretty pleased and so is our client!

We're keeping an eye on this Linux phone by Purism and can't wait for it to be released later this year. It promises a converged desktop and should run Anbox (so we can use our favourite android apps) https://puri.sm/products/librem-5/

Todays job: a little bit of PC repair and office server setup.
Even an older PC can be used as a nifty and cost-effective small office server. The Dell Optiplex 390 we're using will be running Ubuntu Server (CLI). This version of Ubuntu will boot into just 256mb of memory. 2 new hard-drives and software RAID setup & we'll be good to go!
