Mitchell Evan's Tips & Tricks

   

To learn more about my recommendations, feel free to contact me. I develop on a Windows workstation, and deploy to UNIX or Windows servers.

For web site development, I use and recommend these tools.

Software

Macromedia HomeSite - HTML hand-coding with syntax highlighting.

WS_FTP LE - Free FTP client.

PuTTY - Free telnet and SSH client.

WebPosition - Create and manage search-engine-friendly web pages.

Google Toolbar - Track how Google ranks you and your competitors.


Services

Neureal.com - Web hosting, good control panel for UNIX hosting. A nice feature is the ability to host multiple domain names for a single low monthly fee.

GoDaddy.com - Domain names, at least, can be good fast and cheap.

Wordtracker - Search engine research database.


Try a JotSpot wiki - manage projects - create an intranet - get organized - Free Trial Project management

I use JotSpot as an extranet for project management. I would rather pay a few bucks a month, and save an enormous amount of time and energy that would otherwise go to busy-work.

I also use and recommend these general business tools.

Stamps.com Internet Postage - I use this to print all my mailing labels for packages and large envelopes. For $5 a month I never have to wait in line at the post office. You'll need a decent printer (I use a laser printer) and a scale.

eFax - Receive faxes for free via email. For a small fee, print any document to fax over the Internet. Very convenient and flexible, and arguably you'll save money over the cost of buying and maintaining a fax machine.

MasterBell long distance phone cards - I call Germany a lot, and I buy my long distance phone cards from MasterBell.com. Follow this link to browse current phone card prices.
