An archive of my past web projects. I've
tried to maintain the functionality of these sites, but I have no plans to
continue updating/developing them.
Discontinued BrianFrantz.com Network
- A web start-up idea I had that unfortunately came too
late. It was meant to be a hybrid of Craigslist
and half.com, where students could search for textbooks
available at their own campus, contact them through the
site, agree on a price and meeting place, and then leave
feedback when the transaction was complete. About
the time the site was starting to take shape, Facebook
added their Marketplace app which achieved essentially
the same task. Though I had a number of features
in mind which were not implemented in the Facebook
version, I decided my chances of competing against the
already gigantic Facebook userbase were slim to none.
The PHP/MySql user registration/login functionality
provided the basis for my Photography Portfolio
registration system, which was later made into a
- An online portfolio of my commercial web design work
and pricing/contact information for prospective clients.
- The first site I hosted at brianfrantz.com. The
current (final) design was my attempt at making a really
"slick" web layout. Also one of my first sites to
use PHP for including common formatting code. The
site contains random things I found interesting at the
time, a function since replaced by my Piqued blog and
various other content-specific sites accessible through
the navigation bar above.
Auctions - A very simple
Perl CGI application I wrote which generated html
auction descriptions for use on Ebay. It wound up
being used by a number of people, but I never got around
to developing the site any further. It's still
functional, so feel free to keep using it!
These were developed with the help of my friend
Peter and were my first attempts at web development.
- Replaced an earlier, long gone, site called "NPCGamers." Created
by myself and Focused was entertainment reviews from a Christian perspective.
This was our longest running attempt at a review site, which underwent several
incarnations. Needless to say, we eventually gave up on the idea.
Records - A just-for-fun site we made to "promote" a couple
compilation music albums we burned for personal use. We never sold them (that'd
be illegal), but we had fun making labels and pretending they were a big deal.
"Ocsirf" is the name of our hometown, spelled backwards.
- Replaced 4Christ, had a "slick" new layout and a
narrower focus. Abandoned soon after launch.
