Announcing www.echomarket.org

Writing from rural Virginia. I just finished the first phase of my
web-site: www.echomarket.org. It’s a goodwill resource for borrowing,
lending, donating and even trading nonperishable/ethical items. Of
course,
written in Ruby on Rails. Would gladly provide a guest username and
password if you would like to explore in more depth. Also the app level
code is available at github, the README file will give you some
background. Would love some feedback… For the moment the site loads a
bit slowly because I haven’t activated caching yet. I am looking for
work
as a junior-level telecommuter. Thanks, Liz

It is always a good idea to validate you website html before making it
public. See
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.echomarket.org%2F&charset=(detect+automatically)&doctype=Inline&group=0

Thanks! Never knew about this service. Really thanks… Will do
immediately.

For pages that need login you can view the source in the browser, copy
the whole thing, and paste it into a form on the validation site. I
find it invaluable.

Dear Colin,

I do not know to express myself here. I am so grateful! I made the
fixes
and my site has passed validation site criteria. You were so gracious
to
set up the validation site for me.

My many thanks. Can we stay in touch?

Sincerely,

Elizabeth McGurty

Do you mind if on GitHub I attribute guidance to you?

I did not set anything up, merely pointed you to the w3c validator
site. It is them you should thank.

My many thanks. Can we stay in touch?

I am usually here on this list.

Cheers

I don’t mind, but as I said I merely pointed you to the site.

Hi Emm,
No one has that right to scold or point at you. It’s up to you to seek
help
from this group. Don mind all this winds which come on your way… Jus
go
head with your good work.

OMG! I had no idea that these dialogs were public.

I got a pretty scolding message from Hassan S… Do you know him
of
the Rails community?

If privately providing feedback which you requested on your app
constitutes “scolding” – guilty as charged.

Won’t make that mistake again!

Go ahead with ‘your good work’! You have no idea! I am not a wealthy
person, but I am also a person of many responsibilities. For years I
have
trying to make a difference in this world with my talents and the free
sources of Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Netbeans, Aptana, mySQL and the entirety
of
the free API and informational services provided.

I has no idea that my comments here would be public. I wish to
apologize
to Colin L. and Hassan Hassan S. for my statements.

Liz
