About me

My name is Christer Edvartsen and I’m a developer from Norway who enjoys web development using PHP/MySQL and related technologies. I’ve been into PHP since late 1999 and still love it!

I work for VG Multimedia which is the largest online (and regular paper based) newspaper in Norway where I can play with PHP on a daily basis.

I love to solve problems and enjoy working with high traffic sites (www.vg.no gets over 3 million unique visitors every week).

I have also helped nettby.no (the largest Norwegian community site with ~700.000 registered users and 250.000.000 page impressions a week) with optimization concerning the huge amount of traffic the site gets (now over 40.000 simultaneous online users at peak).

Besides programming I enjoy mountain climbing and chopping wood.

    I didn’t hear from you regarding my proposal last month, so I have a different one for you.

    As a reminder, I work at Uptrends, a website monitoring service.

    I would like to give you a free account to our Enterprise account to monitor your website. We will visit your site every 5 minutes from 23 different servers around the globe and we will email/SMS/IM you anytime your site goes down or whenever page load times are excessive (based on your preferences). We also offer an array of tools to help you diagnose issues with your site. This is a service that typically costs $380 per year, but we’re offering to give it to you free of charge.

    All we ask in return is that you put the text “website monitoring by Uptrends” on the bottom of your home page, with the text being hyperlinked to http://www.uptrends.com.

    Would you be open to this?

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. You can see a sample of my work at LaptopComputers.org under the author James Mowery. I’ve also written for several high-profile blogs like Mashable, Perfromancing, and CMSWire. Thank you for your time.

    – James
