Noble Thinking

Clean, elegant design and clarity of purpose were the two key tenets for their website that came out of our initial discussions with the partners at Noble Thinking. As you'll be able to see from their profiles, between them Henry Cummins and Jillian Watt have a vast amount of corporate and military leadership and strategic experience. Allowing others to benefit from this is just one of the advantages that are available through the executive coaching and profound thinking facilitation services that they offer; services which are already highly valued and in great demand. Our task was to ensure that the website communicated their vision with the same clarity and focus that they bring to bear for their clients.

A simple ruby script to check the HTTP response / redirect for multiple urls

This is a simple script that we use as a resource and protocol check to make sure that the status codes and any redirects are as expected. If a redirect is returned then this URL is also checked to make sure that it exists (i.e. status = 200). As always the best way to see how this works is to read the code !
