Compatibility and technical details of this site
This site was built by Alastair Ainslie - please get in touch if you need a new website, or have an existing one that needs revamping or extending.
This site is hosted on Windows 2003 Server running IIS 6.0 at www.openhosting.co.uk's data centre in London's Docklands. I wrote the HTML using Editplus and I created the graphics in Macromedia Fireworks MX and JASC Paintshop Pro. I have access to other programs such as Dreamweaver MX and Flash MX, but I'm a strong believer in keeping the glitzy bits to a minimum. This medium is all about conveying information to the widest audience, as efficiently as possible. Tools like Flash can help that process of communication, but usually it gets in the way. The fact that my phone exchange hasn't been xDSL-enabled yet is a constant reminder to keep pages lightweight!
