Looking for a small to mid size PHP dev house to take over a project from me that's becoming a little larger than I feel comfortable with proceeding too much longer with. Someone experienced with building web apps rather than just website.
If you have anyone you would recommend please let me know, either here or message me via my site.

Something a client has raised with regards to a new site I'm doing for them, and related to their current site and Google's listings for their various pages...
Currently they have a page for each of their location, and then sub-pages for each of the services offered by that location.
From a usability perspective with the amount of content they have, it would be FAR better to have this services information on a single location page.
They are worried about losing the SEO "juice" for these sub-pages, but I have advised them we can easily do a 301 redirect for those pages, but I do have one question I think I know but am not 100% certain about:
Does having multiple pages (one with general location info, sub-pages for the location's services) result in more SEO "juice" overall than having a single page with all this info on it? Or will a single page of well written and hierarchically constructed content be just as effective as multiple pages?

A friend of mine created a script that ran on his Android phone that when he ran swiped right on Tinder automatically for him.
You can write a script to do most repeatable tasks, and creating an account, logging in and creating a post on AiF is a very easy one without any kind of spam/bot check involved. I'm actually surprised there hasn't been a load more, usually once a spam bot has identified an easy target they will keep posting again and again until they can't anymore.

I am SO informal with this kind of thing but I've experienced both sides.
Like @DAVE I've had clients say "No. That's not enough".
I've also had clients saying "We usually only pay half of that".
I hate costing. :(
That sounds interesting. Would love to see what you do (if you're not NDA'd that is).

Hey @Dave we use Quadra Hosting. They have Aussie servers and a good redundancy plan in place.
Haven't used it for just emails but might be worth a look:

I think most of the ideas here are great. Especially:
::Auto subscribe to threads you've posted in, ability to unsubscribe.
Maybe open it up a bit to guest writers or submissions?::
My 2c is that with all of the industry pros that use the site I see Aus Infront as a potential resource for newbies. I guess I can see the site as specific to Australian industry professionals (to use themselves or for students to get in contact with them). I don't know any other site with such direct access to real world designers. I think that could be the point of difference from all of the other design sites out there.
There are heaps of places to get design related news (although having a local bias is great) but why don't we have educational resources like 'How to set up a print ready file'; or 'How to fire a client' etc etc? I would be happy to contribute to something like that.
Re the folios, again, there are heaps of folio sites and I use them before I would check out the folios here. Often because as @Dave says people:
::simply adding their folio and then never contributing to the site again::
Why not combine profile and folio into one section?
Hope that helps

Wow, @Dave and @Dan agreeing. That would be enough to convince me.
I agree, dev isn't something you can just learn and enjoy. It would be like me buying a pencil and notepad, doing a course on drawing and thinking I'll be an illustrator.
If you are an analytical person who can work out how another person problem solves, then integrate that into your method, go for it. Otherwise you'll probably end up on cookie cutter, process driven projects that won't stimulate your creative side.

@dave - much better.
If the client wants it to 'pop' with a bit of 'wow factor' - then you could always change the font to @jamesb 's warehaus/rave font...
@trex - love you work as always. When I grow up, I want to design like you.
