The website is hosted on a (gs) server at Media Temple, and is programmed primarily in XHTML, CSS and PHP utilising several MySQL databases. It also makes extensive use of the MooTools javascript library. Beautiful typography courtesy of Cufón magic.

I'm also eternally grateful to several open-source projects, without which the website would not be possible; TextPattern for content management and phpBB for the Origami Forum.

For any further specific information, feel free to contact me, or just have a look at the source.
