technical details

Chances are that if you're here you want to know how this page works, the technical details. Well, it runs off PHP. Every page on (including contains at least some PHP code. There is an alias which means that filenames ending in .html are also processed as PHP (along with .shtml, but that's only because the 404, 403 and 500 error pages are .shtml and I want to use more than Perl CGI). The site runs off RedHat running Apache. Installed Apache modules include PHP and SSL. Installed PHP modules include MySQL. Hopefully in the future mcrypt and GD will be installed (I'm pressuring my host for these) so I can do such things as online encryption and a dynamically generated graph for my poll.

This section,, runs autonomously. It has its own online passworded administration page, plus all sorts of lovely functions. It has a source code viewer and it is skinnable. All this thanks to PHP. I could go on for ages about all the wonderful features I've implimented in the past few months, but it's now morning and I need some sleep. Let me just comment that, as is visible from the buttons on the right (at least, that's where they are on the default skin) this page is valid XHTML 1.0, uses valid CSS 2 and conforms to the W3C-WAI WCAG 1.0 level AAA. If you want to know anything more please email me. If you want to use any portion of the site in your own coding adventures then feel free but please keep my name on it and tell me what you're using and how. Note that I have just kept copyright, I haven't licenced it under the GPL or CC licences - I just couldn't decide which was best.
