Behind the scenes
The how of this site
This site was created initially with Softquad's HoTMetaL Pro v6.0 for Microsoft Windows, but it's now being developed and maintained with Macromedia's (now owned by Adobe) Dreamweaver (Windows). I looked into a suitable software on the Linux platform, but the only thing I found that I liked was Quanta Plus, but even Quanta Plus didn't have the key feature I was looking for: the template feature that Dreamweaver has. It allows me to continue to code my work in XHTML/CSS but the day-to-day maintenance is much lower.
Tuna Can Org is written to the World Wide Web Consortium XHTML guidelines, along with their CSS 2.0 standards. Why? This means that this web site look good on any standard compliant web browser. Anyone can browse this site, regardless of the type of computer they are using. I'm a Linux user, along with other operating systems, and encountering web sites that only work on Microsoft Internet Explorer is very frustrating.
Tuna Can Org is hosted at the Mzima Networks datacenter in Los Angeles, California. Here's a bit from the Mzima Networks website:
Throughout our history, Mzima has remained focused on delivering its unique network services approach to customers throughout the world, and is now the leading provider of mission-critical data and network services for enterprise IT infrastructure deployments that require the service level that only Mzima can provide.Tom
