Easier Hourly Rate Calculation - 2012 
I had a few moments today to update the "Reasonable Rate Calculator."

Note that we kept the PHP version in there for those who do not have Java.

WebPing 2 Released 

WebPing Overview

Today a lot of the more “affordable” web hosting companies do not use the ping service. Even more insidious, even when the ping program might seem to be working properly, more often than not an RFC Ping Request is in reality being re-directed to another server. -A server typically designed to make your site look a lot more responsive than it really is.

WebPing was designed to provide us with a genuine idea of what our users are experiencing. Because WebPing uses the same HTTP services that our users do, WebPing will provide us a far, far better idea of the type of throughput our users are having at our web site(s.)


Starting with Version 2, WebPing also saves WebPing data on the server. Uploading the webping.php and style.css files are all that is required to start collecting, viewing, managing, and downloading your client-ping statistics.

Because the WebPing data are stored on your host in a loosely-delimited comma separated (CSV) format, WebPing data can be readily used by spreadsheets and other programs.

Ease of Use

Finally, we believe that everyone needs to know if their web server(s) are responding as expected. For this reason, we designed WebPing to be horrifically easy to use. Written in 100% pure Java, WebPing will also work on any platform where Java 1.6 is available.

For more information, please refer to the information in the WebPing user interface. You can download the program using the RELATED LINK, below.

Unit Testing Today 
In 2009 and 2010, the United States Army asked me to write several papers on modern software capabilities.

Inspired by what I discovered on recent unit testing advancements, I have written an article on unit testing. One that I would like to share:

[ Unit Testing Today ]

While the observations in the above focuses a little more on .NET & Microsoft software developer tools than I would prefer, I believe that this paper has a little something for everyone.
