In some sun-bleached barn outside Sacramento, CA c. 2099 a group of physicists, shady g-men, grad-students, tourists and an array of amateur explorers and nü-gonzo-revivalist writer-dudes gather around a collection of strange vehicles that resemble lunar landers. Each is painted a garish colour and prepped to "shift" along an angle of slippage into a crazy new plane of existence. Their mission, in the words of Gene Roddenberry, is to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. These are the voyages of the DayTrippers.
Each Daytripper is equipped with enough fuel to support its crew and dimensional-shift engines for, predictably enough, one day. The idea is simple: slip into alternate universes and pocket dimensions, steal, trade or plunder enough goodies to pay for the next trip, ship upgrades and your student loans. The other end of the universe is a crazy place, filled with strange, dark cities, glowing swamps and crystal spires under mysterious stars. Danger bounds, but so do the riches. Time to zip-up that Automated Survival Suit and seal those pods tight! Let's slip-n-slide!

When the owners of DrinkTown wanted to expand their services to include automated promotion of bar specials in the Chicago area, they contacted AIP. We created a custom Drupal Module for them called "Tweet Cron", which uses input from bar owners and customers to keep Chicago bar patrons informed of daily specials via automated Twitter messages, or "tweets".
Ten25Enterprises wants to make online dating fun again. That's why they came up with the concept for MyDealbreakers.com: a unique online dating site that cuts to the chase, letting you look for potential partners by specifying what you aren't looking for. The site functions as a simple matching game, challenging you to match "Dealbreakers" with the person who made them.
The underlying game engine was developed by As If Productions, using a combination of Drupal 6 modules and custom PHP scripts.
