Canada Business Directory

Have a look at my new project :

This is a full Canadian Business Directory. The database is one year old and is derived from the official gov website. More than 1 million records are included in this database and this website is a way to interact with all this data-set.

Some of the services offered by this project are :

  • Purchasing of the current dataset
  • Purchasing of corrections to existing data

This project is made using php/mysql and some simple functions to query and filter the results securely. Importing the data was quite challenging as they came in a CSV file. After trying for ages to find the best way to import such a file to mysql, I ended up importing it using windows ODBC and ms access. If you need more information on that, I will be happy to help or create a mini guide on that 🙂

I will also be happy to provide you with the full source so that you can run a similar project, if you request it nicely in the comments.

A few weeks ago I decided to get some bitcoins. I did not want to spend any money so I started reading around on how to mine them and soon after I realized that at current rates and difficulty it is impossible to start with nothing and end up with bitcoins. After researching further I finally found a way by mining in virtual linux servers. I made some money and then I thought I should share by creating a guide. Then I made a script and then this website. Then I took it further by creating a wizzard. Follow the wizzards and create instant virtual servers that you are in control. Cryptocurrency, Minecraft servers and more are added every day.

Are you ready to start?
