There are a lot of sites and tools that run automated tests against a website, identifying issues and, ultimately, assigning a letter grade. These tools can be very useful when used correctly; far too often, however, people tend to just look at the letter grade without understanding the underlying issues or taking into account the limits of automated testing. This site parodies those tools, pretending to scan a site and delivering a meaningless grade.Check it out!

Just give it your address and email address, and it'll send you an email the night before every pickup day.Check it out!

At my day job, I work with a range of clients -- from Fortune 200 companies to startups -- helping them architect solutions to their business problems. But by night, assuming the kids go to sleep at a reasonable hour, I'm always working on some side projects like these. They help me learn new technologies, keep up on industry trends, and just have some fun coding!
