Welcome to the OVAL Tech Computer Support Website!
There exists a significant number of home and small business computer users, who do not have access to cost effective computer system administration. These particular users resort to expensive computer repair shops, lengthy and often unintelligble telephone support, or even the local teenager down the street. What these users need is an Independant Computer Systems Administrator.
What is a system administrator?
Basically, a system administrator is hired by a company to maintain the company's computers. This role would include such things as;
Independant System Administration
An Independant Computer Systems Administrator provides computer administration services, but provides these services only for short periods of time to a larger number of clients. In this way, a home user or small business can get the computer support and assistance they require, without directly employing a systems administrator themselves. They receive the same benefits of having a knowledgeable computer technician available, without having to resort to hiring another full time employee or dealing with the issue in house.
These links are some samples of my computer programming and web design abilities. These websites showcase some of my current work so far. I have custom coded several different database access programs with graphic interfaces. I am using some current techniques yet keep my sites simple and easy to navigate. If you have a large amount of data, such as a cemetery, then an online database can be an excellent solution for securely managing and controlling that information. Putting the database online allows users from anywhere to access and view the information while keeping a standard and secure copy of the information. Any changes made can be seen immediately by anyone viewing the database. If you think a custom online database could fulfill your needs, contact me for a free consultation.

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.
St Matthew's Lutheran Church Web Site
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.
