Kaufmann de Suisse Jewelers in Palm Beach

Kaufmann de Suisse Jewelers in Palm Beach Web Site Added to the Gallery

I have added the Kaufmann de Suisse Jewelers in Palm Beach Web Site to the Gallery. https://kaufmanndesuisse.com

I constructed and worked on this site from December 2017 to October 2019. During that period I also did the content and scheduling for the social media accounts for that brand, photography, magazine covers and advertisements, and inventory management system.

I have dropped this client but if you would like to look at the work before future changes may happen to the site, you can do so at https://kaufmanndesuisse.com.

This is a dedicated Linux Server for which I serve as the in house Admin. When I don’t work on the server, my team at Godaddy works on the maintenance and security.


Major Change in Email at Godaddy – Needs Your Decision

Dear Clients,

I need to let all my clients and former clients know that Godaddy has reached the decision to kill off all Workspace Email accounts. We have used those in the past because the email was free.

Those accounts need to be upgraded to Office 365 through Godaddy by November 9th.

I just did 2 of my own that are scheduled to be migrated on Wednesday afternoon. My cost for the first year for two boxes was $47. Next year, it would renew at the standard rate of $120. Personally, I plan to try to consolidate down to one email box before the renewal happens.

If people sign up for a 3 year plan now, their cost is 263.52.

If you are using more than 2 emails, Godaddy can quote the price. Keep in mind that if you consolidate emails, you will need to check the web sites that I built for you to count how many emails in which the forms and contacts are programmed.

I know people will not be happy with this news. But it does cost server companies considerable money in electricity and hardware to power those email servers and they do not currently charge for it. Office 365 is also substantially better technology than the old Workspace.

When an email account gets readded to a phone or desktop computer, with Office 365 the only settings that have to be entered are email address and password. It auto detects all the server settings.

I am sending this out so that everyone can make a decision about what they would like to do with their email addresses.

To perform this service and upgrade, you can call Godaddy’s email team at 1-480-463-8376 to have them schedule the migration and authorize the fees. You will need your Godaddy Account number, PIN and Credit Card Number before you call. Right now Godaddy is waving the migration fees.

Larger accounts with larger number of email boxes may want to consider all the options available.

I wanted to let all my clients know so that you can plan accordingly.

I hope all is well your way. Thanks so much.

The Announcement That’s Coming

The rumor mill has run rampant so I thought I would write this as an informal letter to my friends and business associates in the Carolinas. Yes, I have been noticeably absent for many months.

I started Carolina Web Development in 2012. In 2015, I expanded and opened Florida Web Development, which was originally out of Jacksonville. In January, I moved it to Palm Beach County, FL.

Florida Web Development was hired by an investment company to create a company. And I think that statement under values the magnitude of what I was charged to create. I was hired to create and develop a national competitor to job board sites like Monster, Career Builder, Indeed and Zip Recruiter. I don’t know how much you know about how the software works with those companies but behind the scenes it is as complex as a creating a stock market in software.

To compete with the big boys, is more than a one-woman show. So I choose a development team that has been a really solid pick. We set about creating software that utilizes something that we call SMART Technology. It utilizes advanced algorithms to match each candidate with their perfect job. It’s a system based on advanced search techniques and artificial intelligence. It is a software system that we will continue to improve and continue to advance as the company evolves. We are determined to offer more features than any other company.

We are now within a couple of weeks of launching this company to the world. Our newest employees have started this week.

When the company officially launches for the Soft Launch, I will be stepping out of the developer and a manager role and strictly into operations. The owner of the company is the President of the company; I will become the Vice President of Operations. It’s my role to run this company and to continue to drive innovation. There will be a lot of revisions, changes and redesigns that will continue to make this a better product and company as we progress. It is our intention to build a national, billion dollar plus company. It’s ambitious, it’s aggressive and we hope to eventually achieve everything that is on our list.

I do still retain the ownership and function of Carolina Web Development and Florida Web Development. But, I was really at the point in which I needed to say something as I’ve turned down some smaller and medium sized clients lately without an explanation.

My reputation and companies were all about building technology with style and what I was hired to do had nothing to do with style and was not the focus of our development. Style will be addressed after functionality for obvious reasons.

There are still some long hours and weeks ahead and tough decisions.Most of our work is still sitting on the dev server. But I am really looking forward to launching this company and the sense of achievement that we will all have.

I hope that those of you know me will be happy for me and I hope that you become clients, either as job seekers or employers because we are aiming to be very competitive and well worth your time.


And yes, when I hit LAUNCH, there will be millions of jobs flowing into those systems. During the soft launch we’ll be testing systems and everything won’t be there yet.



Recent Work

Check out the recent work for The TED Center in Florida. They are getting a new web site with stronger branding and positioning.


This month work also included poster designs for the National Association of Black Women in Construction.


A Piece of My History

The new animation for the web site has many pieces of my history in it, but one of them is that my Dad’s prized sports car growing up was a 1956 MGA.


Site Maintenance

The Carolina Web Development site was down briefly for maintenance today. Everything should be back to normal now.

We changed servers.


22 Wexford On The Green


I’ll be blogging and talking about this web site in the next few weeks and property as we’ve been asked to promote the property.

I shot the photos as well as made the web site. I can tell you that the house is truly spectacular and very warm. I think it would make an idea corporate golf retreat for a professional golf company, athlete, PGA or just a very nice vacation home for anyone in the market for a waterfront home on Hilton Head Island.
