Technical Details

This site was hosted by 4UHosting until 2006 when I changed to Green Web Host. The wiki engine is MediaWiki, which is the wiki behind the wikipedia.

History

This site was created in July of 2004 by Paul Sinnett. He decided he wanted to leave full-time employment and start working as a contractor. But he couldn't find the resources he was looking for anywhere on the web so he decided to try to grow one.
