Sonatas & Partitas
This site is driven by my SoundScholar content management system.

Tech Employed:  PHP  MySQL  CSS  Javascript  AJAX

Client Remarks:

 I have always found my site to be really really really good. It was a lifesaver changing over to Lanternworks. And yes you can quote me on that. Very best!

Amy Porter
Amy's site was a real pleasure to develop in collaboration with Amy and Justine Sedky (the co-producer of Amy's podcast). She wanted a single page design for an endless scroll navigation rather than traditional navigation. We included the menu at the top to get the best of both worlds.

Client Remarks:

 WOW - it's beautiful. Thank you Tom!

 This looks great to me! I’m using my phone right now and it’s smooth and solid on mobile.

AOS Workshop
This is Amy Porter's Anatomy of Sound Workshop site. Periodically, the site needs to be programmed to display date-triggered content, such as a sign in form on the day of a workshop, which then displays a video upon login.

Equilibrium
Equilibrium is a sister site to soundset.com, and their management area controls both sites.
The two sites require essentially the same functions, so there is a good amount of code sharing, but there are differences to account for in terms of the catalog and the design. It can be challenging and rewarding to develop a single code base to handle more than one site.

Tech Employed:  PHP  MySQL  CSS  Javascript  AJAX

Client Remarks:

 Looks Beautiful!

Greater Philadelphia Business Coalition on Health

Rosebud Music Publishing
This site manages it's content from the client management area within Lanternworks, and the client was very involved with the design of the site, which is always nice.

This site included some nice new effects. The smooth fade works in current versions of all major browsers (except IE, of course) and even WebOS. The effect was added here at Lanternworks too, but only on certain pages and with a quicker (less dramtic) fade in. We also worked out more intuitive navigation for the gallery than I had been using on other sites, which have now been updated in the same way.

Client Remarks:

 The site looks beautiful. I'm already receiving compliments! Thank you so much.

 Great Results. Expert. Tom's work is the best! I am very satisfied and appreciative of his work.

This site is driven by my Incognitools web application for independent record labels.

Tech Employed:  PHP  MySQL  CSS  Javascript  AJAX

 I wish I could have selected all the attributes listed above (Great Results, Expert, Good Value, High Integrity, Creative) but was limited to only three. Tom's work is the best! I am very satisfied and appreciative of his work.

 I positively recommend Thomas Archibold in the highest degree. Thomas has been highly aware and proactive in understanding, interpreting, predicting, and effectively answering the evolving needs of our business web page. His web design solutions have been technically efficient and thorough, on schedule, and aesthetically impressive. Being a thoughtful person, he is always a pleasure to work with.

4010 Pleasure
The most challenging aspect for this rental property site involved the availability calendar and tying the backend management system to the public site. Having done this kind of setup before at Poe Haven Getaways, I took the opportunity to create a reusable block of code to generate the calendar and all of it's functions.

A reusable validation class was also developed coincidentally with this project, which combines server side and client side form validation. This has now been deployed across all of my sites, saving a great deal of work going forward. Great fun!
 
 
Archiefile Webapp
ArchieFile is a web-database program designed specifically for service based businesses. It is a powerful information management tool which enables you to store and retrieve all of the relevant information for each of your jobs in a highly organized manner.

ArchieFile is based on a record keeping system developed by Thomas Archibold Sr. during his 41 years working in the construction industry. This system (a.k.a. 'the book of knowledge'), which was spreadsheet based, has been given a more robust and capable database backend and a web interface.

Soundscholar Webapp
Soundscholar provides a more complete set of tools for managing your music blog than platforms not specifically targeted for musicians. This means more time communicating ideas and making music, and less time wrestling with software.

It also provides a convenient way for musicians to organize and access their repertoire information and related resources, and to communicate with others about specific works in their repertoire.

Soundscholar supports threaded (bulletin-board style) discussions, audio, video, graphic files, pdf files, search, filter, logs, and generated useful statistics.

Soundscholar's Braintrust feature provides a simple means of communication with others to exchange information, ideas and resources.

The Log System provides a highly organized and convenient way to store notes and capture observations about your repertoire. Comments can be linked to works as a whole, to sections, or even to individual measures. The same is true for audio, video, scores, sources, PDF files, graphics, and notation files (Finale/Sibelius, etc).
