Get the Best Price per Gigabyte with gb4less

gb4less-logoSome time ago, I was looking for some new storage on Newegg.com. I became a bit frustrated looking for the best deal. Although Newegg allows you to sort by rating, you cannot filter on rating data (rating and # of reviews). If you sort by price, you have to try to read through everything to figure out which products have the best ratings and have been rated a fair number of times.

Being the analytical person I am, I just simply wanted the most bang for my buck, but I wanted to make sure the product I bought was tried and true. Eventually, I built gb4less to help others seeking to do the same (and of course, make a few bucks in the process). With gb4less, you can sort by price and filter on rating info at the same time and do much more!

Homepage Maximizer

Current User Count:

My Homepage Maximizer gadget only has a few options to turn on and off some of the standard items on your iGoogle page.  The Google search bar on the page takes up a rather large amount of space.  This gadget really helps to increase the amount of space for other gadgets by allowing you to remove the Google search bar.

Originally I had written the gadget to just turn off the Google search bar at the top. One day Google changed the name of the page element containing the search bar, and a few users of my gadget let me know it was broken. Per request by one of them, I added the options for the tabs and footer options as well.

Projects

As the true geek that I am, occasionally I enjoy passing the time with a little coding, a little hacking, and other activities.  I wouldn’t call myself a programmer, as it is not my primary occupation and I’m well aware that most people that program do it much better than I do.  I would consider myself to be more of a programming hobbyist.  Most of the programming I do is with JavaScript, although in my day-job I am quite profficient with VBA.  Recently, I’ve done quite a bit of programming in PHP and MySQL also.

Download Google History
I recently put together a tool that allows you to download your entire Google Web History, using a bookmarklet. It has recently gained a lot of interest in light of Google’s changes to their privacy policy.

RerunCheck
RerunCheck is a website I put together that lets you know whether or not your favorite show is airing new episodes.

The Ultimate DoFollow Search Engine
After many failed attempts, I finally managed to put together a decent algorithm for identifying dofollow blogs. The dofollow search engine searches articles posted solely on dofollow blogs.

WordPress Plugins
Shortly after creating GeekLad, I started developing some plugins. I found myself in need of plugins/widgets that didn’t exist, so I developed some of my own.

ForeverSMS
ForerverSMS is my most recent project (other than GeekLad).  It is a service that allows you to send text messages for free.

I’ve developed a number of iGoogle gadgets you might want to check out.
