Interesting Facts About

Update - 15 Aug 2009
The server is now hosted by godaddy. I have made this decision along with my brother in order to have better uptime, and godaddy offers wordpress and php which my brother uses for his site.

The server itself is a standard computer. I built it myself in 2002 (or so) for about $400. It was served from the Whites home for a few years but now resided in my room. (it took my parents a few years to learn that High Speed Internet was actually faster that dial-up AOL.

AMD Athalon XP 2600. 1.8 GHZ, 1.5GB RAM, 100 GB HDD, No Monitor, (it is currently on it's second hard drive.)
I currently run a second server that serves a mirror of the web contents. It is an older Dell (1.8 GHZ, 1GB RAM, 80 GB HDD, no monitor).

Software: Windows XP Professional, Apache Web Server, WarFTP, Posaidis DNS.

Bigger Page Updates

The Wonderland Trial pictures (taken 5 September 2002, posted 5 september 2007) took over 5 years to be edited and posted.
Explanation: Time was a slight factor... It took some time deciding how to display and design the site. It took lots of time to organize the pictures. Lots of time to stitch the panoramas. Then EDIT the panoramas. I then took a long break because of ...time... Just before leaving for Brazil I started working on the project again, hoping to finish before leaving. ...once again, not enough time... 2 Years in Brazil. Upon returning I decided to re-edit the pictures for color and publish them in larger sizes and have a second copy of the site ready to be viewed on even larger screens (post 2007, the 19 inch widescreen standard). I was thinking big, bigger than most people could afford at that time. (32 - 60 inch screens). Looking back, maybe I should've made them even bigger. But in the end, i'm glad it took so long becaues it is much better that I had ever planned.
