Technology & Programing
Deciding which web host to use for this website was done before I even started to write the code for the site. For me, the decision was critical. I wanted the best; a reliable host which could cope with ever increasing band width requirements, provide all the tools I needed and provide hosting at a reasonable price. So after checking out the various hosting companies, the decision was easy, I chose the world's number one host; 1&1 Internet Ltd.
The following three applications have each been used during the developement of this website. Use of these applications was free of charge, so as a thank you to their respective authors, I provide these links.
SimpleViewer a fully customizable Flash image viewing application. It is lightweight and easy to use, features smart preloading, and has a resizable interface.
Easy Thumbnails is a free Windows utility for producing accurate thumbnail images. It can be used to scale up/down and covers a wide range of popular image formats.
Mirror Cashback is owned by MGN Ltd and is operated by V A C Media Ltd, which is the UK's largest cashback service provider. It is free to join and available to UK residents aged 18 or over. It provides links to over 2000 retailers, where cashback can be earned from online purchases, when visited from a link at the Mirror Cashback site. Special discounts and promotions are often available as well. If you sign up through my link here, it also, eventually helps me!
I make my own purchases through this site frequently. There are no catches and no charges. Get paid for things that you buy anyway. Once your earnings reach £25, the money is paid automatically into your bank account, a few days later. I have received several automatic payments and have never had a problem with Mirror Cashback.
