"New ideas are always criticized - not because an idea lacks merit, but because it might turn out to be workable, which would threaten the reputations of many people whose opinions conflict with it. Some people may even lose their jobs."--Unknown
These links are some samples of my computer programming and web design abilities. These websites have been designed, coded, drawn, and put together, by me alone. That's right, so far, OVAL Tech is a one man show. Most programmers do not do graphic design. Most graphic designers, do not program. For these websites I have done both the graphics design and programing. I would prefer to just program, because my artistic abilities are somewhat lacking, and it is far too time consuming. If you would like to get involved, learn some tricks, or just want some free space on my website, drop me a line.NEW
OVAL Tech is now offering webmastering, web site hosting, domain names, databases and email accounts. If your looking for a local Canadian hosting company or new web site for your company than send me an email or check out this link for for information.

The Stony Plain, St Matthew Lutheran Church hired me to do the database for their two cemeteries. The database for their 79 avenue cemetery in Stony Plain has over 2000 plots with the ability to store 8 interments per plot, so the database can handle up to 16,000 possible interments. There was the need to have an additional cemetery, St Matthew Lutheran Inga in Parkland county, with the ability to easily search both cemeteries by name of the intered. Again a dynamic map was provided for each, which greatly simplifies the data entry, management process and allows the public to readily search and locate relatives or family within the cemetery. Searched locations are highlighted in yellow on the map, so someone can be quickly searched and located within either cemetery. This particular site was integrated into their existing church web site and the styling customized to match.
This is a wedding site with a gift idea registry and simple RSVP form. The link and an access password are given in the wedding invitations allowing invited guests to use the site to RSVP. The RSVPs are sent to an email, listing whether the guest are attending or not attending as well as the number in their party if attending, right in the subject of the email. A simple gift idea list is provided to make sure the wedding party does not receive duplicate gifts. This simple RSVP form is suitable for weddings which do not want to use the more complicated corporate registries which involve account creations and limit the guest to buying from specific companies. Please contact me if you would like to purchase this code or would like something similar for your own wedding. The site can be easily customized to suit your particular needs.
Jackie and Ron's Wedding Web Site
The St Matthew's Lutheran Church hired me to do the web site for their church. This site incorporates a blog type functions, but with a cleaner and simpler interface more suited to the needs of the church. The emphasis was on simplicity, ease of use and access to the information. The back end will provide a simple way to manage this information. By keeping the site simple, people have no trouble finding what they need, and it is much easier for people to manage in order to keep the information up to date. With the option to control the event schedule, upload their newsletter and manage a photo gallery, this met there needs and budget. You can see the photo gallery incorporates a modification of the InfoDance code example below.

This is another site built upon the graphic map interface to control the database. The St Matthew's Cemetery was impressed with my interface and now they too have a simple system for their record keeping. There have been some improvements and modification made in this version, including the use of actual satellite photographs of the cemetery and links to google maps. There have been improvements made in security, speed and expandability. Each of these cemetery interfaces provides a login, which the caretakers can use to access a management page for all the data in the cemetery database. Here you can add, change, delete and otherwise modify the information recorded for each interment. In most cases this is as simple as clicking that plot on the map, changing the information, and clicking save. The management page provides a means to print the information out in a black and white, hard copy form for record keeping purposes.
This website was created with a dynamic graphic interface for a cemetery database. The Heatherdown United Curch and Cemetery wanted a way to easily control their record keeping. The cemetery map is dynamically drawn based on data from the database, so searches and status of each plot can be readily displayed and accessed. Simply putting the cursor over a plot will show the information. The interface makes the data much more accessible and easier to verify.
