  *Outstanding* job, period.

Eric gave me an *excellent* feedback, He was able to quickly find bugs I could never catch by myself.
Eric clearly knows his stuff. He is, by far, my favorite coder (certainly the best I've ever worked with).

Eric is professional, courteous, friendly and quick. Working with him was a real pleasure. I'm looking forward to work with Him in the near future!

  Eric is absolutly great. Period. End of story. Worked well from intial contact to delivery. Questioned my idea untill he had a complete understanding...made suggestions...and then delivered a great product in a timely fashion. Developed and delivered with constant updates even though he didnt have to give them as project was under 150.00. He definatly goes in the rolladex for future coding projects. Reant a Coder has a real gem here.

  Very good work. I gave Eric a load of information and he pulled it together into useable content. Very good communication with me about the project. This was a technical writng project.

  Eric took the initiative to perform a very thorough analysis and came up with a solution in short order. All in all a very professional and very competent performance by an up and coming superstar. I would not hesitate to use Eric again and he already has a private bid in progress based on the work already done. I expect the same type of results as in the first project. He can think on his feet and always offers alternatives but still cuts to the chase without a lot of prevaricating or vacillation. Nice work.

$185.00 May 29, 2003 11:58:06 PM EDT
  Eric did a great job converting the site to a new template. He did some things to make it load faster and be easier to upgrade in the future. Those were great bonuses. I just had to tell give him the bid request and mention a few things here and there and he did all the rest.
  Three HTML templates to PHP magnetron 10
$105.00 May 11, 2003 3:45:02 PM EDT
  Eric did a great job on these HTML templates. He made it so that I only have to change one file in order to see an instantaneous change in the look and feel of the entire website. That's going to be at least 50 pages! He really knows his stuff and how to manipulate PHP to make the website as efficient as possible. Thanks.

  Great guy. He was listening to my requirements and delivered without too much of the yada yada stuff which is common on coders (apparently some are just looking to do things on their way..without listening to the client). Will use him again for other php projects and may be more. Great communication, more then fast. Superb communication.
