About ·
Just some boring/geeky stuff about this site.

Notepad++ All the pages were written in the text editor Notepad++. (I used to use Textpad but I changed…) No Web Dev IDE was harmed in the making of this site.

Lucee ColdFusion I'm using Lucee CF templates to read from an ODBC linked .xlsx file to build the gallery pages and the customised Google maps.

Perl ImageMagick The thumbnail creation process is automated using (Strawberry) Perl and ImageMagick

Adobe Lightroom PTGui All recent photos (post 2014) were shot in RAW format on a Sony NEX7 with a variety of lens and postprocessing was carried out in Adobe Lightroom. Earlier pictures where shot on a variety of Olympus 35mm SLRs (OM-10/OM-20/OM-4Ti) with a large variety of Zuiko lens on 35m slide file (usually Kodachrome 64) and then scanned with a Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400 II. (See my OM nostalgia pics.) Recently (2019+) I've been using PTGui to stitch images together to create panoramas.

Yup, I'm bit of an old dinosaur...

fancyBox powers the galleries and the image fade effects on the gallery thumbnails is something I hacked myself, with reference to the image transitions libraries from brothercake.

Validation  ·
For the sake of standards I've validated the site as follows:

Valid HTML5 Most of the site is written in (valid!) HTML5. The older stuff is Strict XHTML1.1. And the even older stuff is doctype HTML 4.01 Frameset. The gallery pages don't play that nicely on a touch screen (yet), but then why would you want to look at the pics in the galleries on a tiny wee screen? So I may fiddle with the gallery mouseevents at some point, but then who, really, is going to care?

Valid CSS For what it's worth (not a lot, really) the CSS is valid too. Though, for full disclosure, I am still using tables for layout in the gallery indexes. But then a grid of images is really a table of images, isn't it?
