Alarm Planet is one of my recent websites. Created with Joomla 1.7 and a ready made template that is tweaked and customized to the max. It took about 5 weeks to complete even with a Banner Slider/Float.
I've created over 3,200 websites for local businesses in Texas. And I'm not the type to back away from hard work or creative challenge. I find myself an easy go between a hard-core PHP Programmer and a creative Photoshop Designer.
