List of All Reviews Written By James Leahy from San Jose, CA:

Impressive UI, poor security    
Written by James Leahy from San Jose, CA   (Sunday, April 02, 2006)
Writer is with:
Listing Reviewed:   i-Gallery
Strengths:   Nice looking UI, easy for non-programmers to get the hang of  
Weaknesses:   Easy to hack and deface, an apparent target for Turkish hackers  
Details:   This is a nice piece of work, taking advantage of .NET, and has familiar 'folder' style thumbnails. I used it to help two clients on a budget get an easy and free gallery. This gallery however has been hacked into by Turkish individuals repeatedly. The flaw allows a hacker to deface the gallery, upload .asp pages to the server, and replace the default page with their own page. I've run into this repeatedly on the two sites I used it on, and so had to take if off both. With this flaw, I don't recommend it. Followed all the setup and config instructions to the letter.
Review Based On:   5 Month(s) of usage  
Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   As of this posting 135,000 copies of i-Gallery have been downloaded and the only reports of “Turkish” hacking that I have received were from users that had not removed the login credentials that shipped with their version of i-Gallery. As per our installation instructions (see #4) located here: we strongly recommend immediately deleting those credentials. If left in place it is very easy for any user to access the back-end of the software and upload malicious scripts.

Clean, quick and simple

Listing Reviewed:   2eNetWorX TableEditoR
Strengths:   Great tool for administration of non-relational tables  
Weaknesses:   None  
Details:   I maintain several difference access databases for my clients. This helps me to add, delete, create and edit recors quickly and be on my way to other tasks. A real winner for quick edits without having to create asp pages to edit tables. Solid work all around.

Great proudct, nonexistent support    
Written by Anonymous User (#1491-174) from San Jose, CA   (Saturday, December 03, 2005)
Listing Reviewed:   ASPMaker
Strengths:   Many levels of use, intuitive and quick  
Weaknesses:   Sent a very heartfelt thanks and question to them, never heard back.  
Details:   We tried it out for hurricane relief efforts in the gulf and it helped us speed up our work. I sent a heartfelt accolade to them with a question and they never responded or even sent back an antomated acknowledgment. We decided as a result to not purchase the product because we cannot depend on non-existent support in our work. This may change in the future, but for the mean-time, I would not recommend purchasing it.

Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   Technical support is not provided during evaluation period. The user sent email to registered user support email address without license info and the email was therefore ignored. Unregistered users can use our public forum for pre-sales questions.
