We like plain old HTML, CSS and yellow. We don't like Flash or style over content. We're working on the PHP stuff but it's not our forte. If you're a geek and you'd like to help, get in touch!

Most graphics are the work of Marceline Smith or Simon Minter who both use Photoshop a lot.

Words and photography are by lots of different people who are listed on our Contributors page.

The diskant font is Cooper Black and the general text font is Verdana. The diskant yellow is #FFCC00 and the Pantone spot colour reference is 123C.
