We build cool stuff.

Handcrafted. Mother approved.
Need Drupal? WordPress? Want to break up with an archaic CMS? Or, like us, you need to craft a custom application which meets your specific needs, can ensure security and keep your site(s) safe and running? You've found the right team.


Your idea, our code. Off-the-(virtual)-shelf software rarely does exactly what you need. That is why we listen to your needs and can build just about any web based application. Or if you prefer a Drupal or WordPress solution we can accommodate!


Serious solutions without fancy marketing or arcane overage charges. From web clusters to private email to files, productivity and messaging suites we have hosted solutions to keep you productive and your information private.


If something is free you are the product. All of our services are free of data mining so your information is protected.

Not your average development agency

More than just Design & Development
We also host complex site and database clusters and provide hosting for open-source email, collaboration, office/productivity, file sharing, password hosting, version control and much, much more. Powered by Mastodon

The features of Twitter without compromising your ethics
Powered by Mastodon, WMD Social gives you the benefits of Twitter without all the evil. No algorithms or ads to waste your time. Follow anyone across any Mastodon server from a single account and receive their posts in chronological order, and make your corner of the internet a little more like you.

Mastodon puts decision making back in your hands. Each server creates their own rules and regulations, which are enforced locally and not top-down like corporate social media, making it the most flexible in responding to the needs of different groups of people. Join a server with the rules you agree with, or host your own.

An update to Google's privacy policy suggests that the entire public internet is fair game for it's AI projects. If Google can read your words, assume they belong to the company now, and expect that they’re nesting somewhere in the bowels of a chatbot.

Connecting two domains in Zimbra for chat/autocomplete

We ran into a unique case recently where a client needed to connect two domains so they were essentially on the same domain. Let’s say one domain was DOMAIN_B.DEV and the other was DOMAIN_A.COM. What you are trying to do is make each domain’s GAL (Global Address Listing) available to each other. This must be […]
