This is an update on things related to this blog and my work.
- Preparing articles on topics:
- Opinions on Python (had a small project with it)
- My infrastructure setup (with some tips to improve service and lower costs)
- Working on a huge update to the list of projects.
- Some article text readability upgrades.
- Analytics upgrade.
I have put together a quick analytic database for tracking the visitors. I wanted to find a better solution for dealing with Google Analytics ghost referrals and bots by adding some techniques that should allow to detect bot users (I need this for other projects too). I also wanted to browse individual visitor sessions (not available on GA). I have already collected a month of tracking data on this blog and it shows some interesting properties. I will soon write a separate post about the findings.
I still work on the same projects as in the previous update. However, I'm not working on weekends anymore. I work on weekend only in special cases (product launches etc). This must be agreed prior to the weekend and is billed hourly including idle hours. I do not accept any new projects at the moment as I have too much work.
I'm also working on a large update to the the list of my generic terms. I will require a formal written contract from all of my clients in the future. This reduces possible risks from miscommunication and bad assumptions about Estonian laws. I will also clarify the type of work I accept, the schedule and project termination.
Domain kehakool.ee has gone down. It hosted the most successful project I have worked on. Despite the relative success, sales dried up and there were no resources to do further development or even maintain the pages and downloads.
- Raspberry Pi-based desktop automation (Python, tkinter, Flic.io)
- Truck load optimizer (HTML5, KnockoutJS)
