We’re well aware that many of you have come here under the impression that we’ll be offering information on the Virtual Memory System, and you’re almost right. While we’re preparing our design and resources for the new site that will reside upon this domain, we figured that we’d try to offer some of the resources that might be attractive to visitors. So when you see something about the ‘original’ VMS website, that’s because it probably comes from there!
We’ve made it a point to preserve all of the original vmsone.com data for those of you who are still using links and bookmarks from several years ago, but we highly recommend that you move forward, as our website is almost ready to ‘go live’ and become the all-new vmsone.com!
We can’t stress enough that we’re not claiming any copyright or ownership over (or even much knowledge or familiarity with) the original VMS one content.
Our expertize is about developing e-commerce sites. We have built or consulted on lots of sites, but one of our favorites was not an e commerce site per se, but instead an information site about a doctor whose expertise was in sports medicine. If you have ever suffered from “tennis elbow”, a type of tendinitis, medically known as lateral epicondylitis, Dr Bob Donatelli is the man to see. He has been treating tennis elbow, elbow pain, wrist pain and shoulder pain in association with tennis elbow, and golfer’s elbow for the past 25 years. He has worked with not only professional athletes but also high school and college age athletes. Such untreated conditions such as medial or lateral epicondylitis that are associated with wrist pain, Tennis elbow and shoulder pain can be career ending resulting in the loss of athletic scholarships, and most importantly in the loss of the individual athlete’s dreams of playing his / her favorite sport. Dr Donetelli also sells the three books he has written discussing his assessments, rehab, and exercises to help athletes with a variety of sports related injuries. One reason we were happy to work with Dr. Donatelli and his site is that several of us have suffered at one point or another from both golf and tennis related injuries and we want to exploit Dr Donatelli’s expertise. NOTE: He was great and offered several of us sound advice while telling us to set up an appointment to see him the next time we were in Las Vegas, where his offices are located.
Another was an e commerce store that offered supplies for janitors and regular folks as well. They had over two thousand (2000) pages on their site selling janitorial supplies ranging from dozens of different toilet paper and their dispensers, to all sorts of cleaning containers, detergents and soaps, mops, brooms, rubber gloves to recycling containers. They had environmentally aware “green” products, and organic janitorial supplies. Whether you had a large business with a lot of cleaning staff or a small firm with only one janitor, this e-commerce site had what you’re looking for. The building manager at our location even ordered their janitorial supplies from them!
And another favorite was a store that created signature gift baskets that were personalized for special occasions.
You name the occasion and they would create these fantastic looking gift baskets deigned to overflow with gourmet treats, fruits, and wine, or filled with cute baby things. They had everything you would need for a spa experience, gift baskets for dog lovers or cat lovers, sympathy gift baskets, get well gift baskets, and wedding gift baskets. They also catered to businesses with unbelievable luxury corporate gift baskets. Although the store promoted gorgeous gift baskets, the gift basket designs would range form actual baskets made from reeds, cork, leather, wood, or metal to box towers, stylish attache cases to a wine tote, among other shapes. Personalization with engraved wine glasses, mugs, pens, bookmarks, notebooks etc. could be added to the gift baskets. The best part of dealing with this gift basket company was that we received one of their luxury gift baskets on a number of the major holidays. The Christmas holiday season was probably the best, but Valentine’s Day came in a close second with their gift basket full of chocolates, champagne and roses. So you can see that this site is going to create a steep learning curve for us, but we are up to the challenge.
If you’re one of the original authors and you see something of yours here that you want removed, please let us know. On the other hand, if you want to contact one of the original authors, we can’t really help you because we have no connection to them whatsoever. Sorry about that!
So anyway, enjoy what they did which you can, and enjoy what we’re doing as we do it. Try to enjoy gift baskets. Hopefully, before too long, we’ll all be doing stuff together and the world can live happily ever after or something!
