Beneath the Ice

A bit of technical detail on how the site is engineered (for anybody that's interested), plus a few credits for free stuff on the web!

PHP has been written using PHP, an open-source, server-side, cross-platform, HTML-embedded scripting language! Most of PHP's syntax is borrowed from C, although there are elements from Perl, C++ and even Java.

PHP started life in 1995 as "Personal Home Page", before evolving into the recursive acronym for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor". It is a sister project of the Apache Software Foundation.


The site also uses a MySQL relational database. SQL (generally pronounced "SEQUEL") stands for "Structured Query Language", the most common standardised language for accessing relational data.

Like PHP, MySQL (officially pronounced "My-S-Q-L") is also open-source software, which means that anyone can use and even modify them, without paying a penny! :o)
