What's all that stuff at the bottom "Powered by...etc."?

The heavy lifting on this website is all done by open-source software. Everything from the webserver's operating system (Linux), the software that serves the webpages (Apache), assembles the webpages (php), manages our extensive database of articles and information (mySQL), generates and manages the website (PostNuke). Thousands of individuals have collaborated on this software which is then released free to the general public.

This software is mature and widely used from in some cases operating thousands of websites (PostNuke) to being the predominant web serving software (Apache).

This acknowledges and thanks all those who've participated. Without their generosity, you'd be staring at a one page web site updated every six months.

Use the contact page and let the webmaster know. Because I have to do this by hand, please don't change your username on a whim. If you are truly unhappy with yours, I'm glad to accomodate.
