After some discussion on, people wanted to have sigs which changed. I decided I might do such a thing and came up with Random Picture Script. The first versions of it would let you just link to the pictures via a URL. You could have multiple pictures by having multiple URLs. Eg.;

To further develop my PHP skills I decided to do a PHP Business Management System. The PHP Business Management System was like normal store transactions. It allowed staff to be able to make transactions for a purchase, eg customer buys something from the store and they find the products using the product ID and then print out an invoice.

17 August 2004
After a while of having no domain name and having no real webhosting, I decided to get the domain name and went with a webhosting company called Qualsec.

Since the success of the Random Picture Script, I decided to modify it and came up with what I have today, the Random Sig Script. It allows people to upload their images, delete images, etc.

3 November 2005
The How To section was established and some How To’s were published.

16 August 2005
UzziSoft moved from Qualsec to Servage web hosting as the Qualsec servers sometimes were been ddos’ed as well as Random Sig Script users signature picture not been able to be deleted.

19 February 2006
The learning PHP video tutorial was made. It took some time to get all the content and editing right but in the end I managed it. I put it up for the price of $2 and it finally took about 1 month for someone to actually buy it. (The video tutorial was then made free about 1-2 months later)

2 April 2006
The PHP CVS Project was released. Looking around the internet I couldn’t find really find any CVS written in PHP as simple as mine. It was going to be a basic CVS system, which will allow users to manage files, edit files and post changes in a change log whilst keeping a version control on files.

5 April 2006
Signed up with DreamHost to host UzziSoft some where else. The domain was registered. It cost $13 US for a whole year of web hosting with 1 domain free (1 TB Bandwidth per month with 25GB HDD space).

10 April 2006
I developed a scene type show like except that it will be about the p2p scene. It took a while to get the editing right, but I came up with an seemly alright Episode 1. I had future plans for other episodes, but no many people showed an interest. I assumed it was because many people might have not even know about it. p2p scene was then cancelled.

19 April 2006
The UzziSoft blog was created so users could see what kind of things were needed to run/manage UzziSoft. This blog later became my own blog with any kind of posting be it about UzziSoft or not. All other news/events are now posted on the blog which you are reading now.
