Welcome to Solid Clues Consulting.

Currently Solid Clues Consulting consists of one guy and some computer equipment, which is approximately what it has usually been. To avoid the pretentious business 'we' I will introduce myself:

Hi, I'm Bill Cole and this is my dormant freelance geekery business.

What Solid Clues Consulting does...

Currently I have a full-time job that precludes me from taking on consulting work, so Solid Clues Consulting functions solely as a business face/wrapper for my personal online stuff, such as domain registrations.

Since relocating from St. Louis to Detroit in 1998 I've allowed the spinning down of my consulting business, and I've mostly been focusing on my 'day jobs.' I've also been doing occasional work for existing clients, but that has dwindled to virtually nothing. The business isn't dead, it's just sleeping, and I'm no longer available as a hired gun. I also am not actively seeking to change jobs and it would take something really special to get me interested in a career move of any kind right now.

As for the specifics of what I have done to acquire the coveted dollars, you can see my resume and if you dig deeply enough into the rather dated 'virtual job interview' you can see some of what I have done as a freelance and what really interests me in work. The short business description I once used is:

Solid Clues Consulting provides high-technology expertise and services to small and mid-sized organizations.

Like all mission statements, that says very little. So I'll list a few things I've done:

Enough already... This is starting to read like a sales pitch for my freelance work, and it really isn't. I've just gotten tired of people asking what is, so there it is. If you have an extremely interesting project you need help on and think I might like it, feel free to e-mail me a pitch, but be warned that I'm almost certain to pass on it. Also be warned that I tend to have little patience for carelessly random flackery...

If I'm such a web developer, why are there no graphics here?

It's really very simple: they would add little but load time. There is certainly a place for flashy imagery on the web. I love flashy imagery. It just isn't what this page is about.

If you want to send me spam, send it here instead.
