Technical Information about ReadySteadyBook
The re-development of RSB was designed and constructed between June and August, 2005. The back-end engine for the site is a bespoke solution built using ASP.NET (VB.NET) and MySQL technologies. The front-end makes full use of XHTML/CSS2 (where possible).
The little "antipixel" buttons (used for our news-feeds) were generated with the Brilliant Button Maker by LucaZappa.com
On the Blog and Contributor pages we have implemented Paul Riley's NoSpamEmailHyperlink code to confuse the evil SpamBots! (Cheers Paul!)
We would also like to thank the developer of FreeTextBox, as we use it in our admin tools.
...and finally we'd like to thank Amazon Web Services, as this is how we get all the meta-data for our book reviews - thanks a million!.
