I make websites useable by humans, readable by search engines and help to improve page rankings.

With over 10 years experience as a developer in the search engine marketing industry, I'm well versed in website discovery and usability.

I love databases, APIs and the flexibility it gives to the distribution of content. Your content should be as accessible to machines as it is to humans.

A little bit more

Rob succeeded at what others tried and failed to accomplish for our 2014 website re-development. He preserved 16 years of stories, images, comments and subscribers; migrated everything out of one CMS platform and into another; and is still solving every website challenge we throw at him.

How to get your Windows 10 Key

Posted in General

I recently bought a new pc, and was a bit quick to install Windows, create a backup drive and remove the disk to install the larger ssd from my previous computer.

The upshot of that was that, after installing the operating system on the new drive, it wouldn’t activate Windows as I didn’t fully activate it on the first install before making the recovery drive.

In the end, I got in contact with a Windows support person who recovered the activation key from the computer hardware. Which is pretty simple when you know the commands.

To get your key:

Right click on the start menu and select “Command prompt (admin)”

Type in:

wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey

You should then get your key in the console output.
