This site is so new, its almost too painful to watch it evolve…
To develop and create this site, we currently deploy the following services and tools:
- The front end of this website is based on The7, a photo theme for WordPress, by Dream-Theme.
- The website’s back end operations and functions are provided by WordPress.
- Hosting services are provided by Digital Ocean Inc., a USA based provider of premium Internet Services. They have a real good deal going whereby, if you use my referral code, you get a $100 credit which is good for 2 months, this to initially try out their services. If you like what they have, obviously you’ll stay around for longer.

- Image compression was provided by Kraken.io. Kraken does what it is supposed to do and does a very fine job at that. I get compression levels of up to 50% and this with little if any visible loss in image quality Given them a try. Use this referral link as an introduction to their services.

As they say, “Great work is seldom created by chance”. Nor is “great work” created alone or in the dark, so to speak. The development of this particular web site has been long in the making. In the process there have been many who have helped in their way along this path. I would like to thank all those who have participated directly in the making and development of this site and to those countless others who are forever posting solutions, suggestions and updates to most of the services deployed here – a big thank you to all.
