We use several file servers, which are mirrored to contain the same information.
We back our servers automatically every day.
For added security, the servers are located in different buildings.
• Media servers
We use three media servers, which are mirrored to contain the same information.
• File management
We use the shell (terminal window) for file management. The shell (vector) is more effective that a conventional window (raster).
• Privileged access
About 20% of our website has privileged access, requiring username and password.
Every once in a while, we create a new webpage using HTML and CSS, with cut and paste editing as appropriate.
Once created, we use the page repeatedly as a template
for new pages of similar content.
We use a variety of backgrounds and colors to provide a page design that is appealing to the eye.
We make extensive use of image manipulation (Adobe Photoshop) and graphic design software (Adobe InDesign).
Our video portal highlights our growing capabilities in this area.
We use a five-digit link (Example: 41059) numbering system to uniquely refer to links on the site.
We use a New page to highlight new links on the site.
We make extensive use of subdomains to highlight the most important links of the site.
We use a unique search/index engine to readily find links on the site.
