This should take hopefully about 4 hours if you are comfortable with the technologies. This is the first stage of a larger job (hopefully after completion we will both be interested in discussing stage 2).
- Create one and save it as a cookie which expires after 48 hours.
- Make an AJAX call, passing information in a querystring attached to an image - so that it works crossdomain (again Google Analytics style). The information passed should include the current page url (landing page), the account ID, the GUID, and the referrer string.
The second part is a simple PHP script to record this information via SimpleDB (API and example scripts are available, it's not much different to MySQL - but somebody who has used this is preferred). The values this should record are:
- *values from header/inferred*: IP address, expiry date (48 hours from when originated)
The project should include quickly testing for any issues in at least 3 different browsers/versions.
You need to be comfortable talking briefly on Skype to discuss.
