Databases, Internet and ASP

Thanks to the addition of the ASP backbone and MS-ACCESS database, that I provided, Sassociations is now fully automated and requires hardly any human intervention.
  • Over 3000 ads were placed on Sassociations Pen pals last year. It's estimated that over 2500 users visit this web site every month.
  • I implemented a new database-driven engine for Sassociations using server-side scripting technologies and a relational database.
  • The new system provides users with a search engine that allows them to find matching pen pals quickly.
  • users can create, modify or cancel their ads online without any interaction with the administration.
  • their ads are immediately searchable upon creation
  • the content is sorted and easier to browse
  • More than 44,000 ads have been posted by our users.
The original web site was retired in 2004 but a PHP-optimized version of Sassociations can be found online at this url.

The new registration form is entirely automated.
The ads are automatically sorted and users can easily browse the directory.
