Our 1st final working website version is live and technology issues

By Thomas (2000 Underground Music)

The 1st final working version is now live. We have our design and editorial system in place. We were going to use XML databases, but they are not flexible enough. Then we were going to use slot technology, but that is giving us problems, so we are not quite there with the database system at the moment, but will do it further down the line. If you have any tips or suggestions about good database technology and reusing in HTML, do let us know. Media queries also need putting in. ‘Time to tjeck’ as Roger23 says.

This is the control panel of the 1st nuclear power plant ever built, with retro 1950s style, dials, buttons and lights. This is a free museum located in a remote part of Idaho, United States, that is only open to the public, for a few months each summer.

Article publishing and further details

We love to publish good:

  • Articles.
  • Email exchanges.
  • Expert knowledge.
  • Lists.
  • Photo documentaries.
  • Reviews.

How we can help

We work directly with you on editing, proofreading, image editing and formatting, graphic communication design, and improving the content.

Longevity

Articles are kept on this website for a long time, 10+ years, in a consistent place, and for as long as the website is online, so they have a good home.

Payment

We do not currently pay for content, due to lack of cash, overheads and running costs, but can certainly link to you. We need to think about how we can do this in the future.

Authors retain the copyright, or joint copyright if there is more than 1 author of the article. We ask for a reuse license.

Copyright for reusing content

Any images used will be copyright of the stated maker or photographer.

For text content, you are allowed to reuse and quote, about 500 words of an article for free without permission. But you must always credit the article title, URL, authors and our website name. If you wish to reuse and quote any more than 500 words, you need to pay a small 1-off reuse fee, contact us. The fee then goes to the authors.

[Text in square brackets]

We describe and expand abbreviations and other terms, that would not be commonly understood inside square brackets [ ], so the text can be more widely understood. They act like a higher‑level outside voice.

Faulty content or if you are not pleased

If you spot any errors, incorrect facts, or something you are not keen on or displeases you, please contact us and we would be happy to discuss it with you. We try to make the content as friendly and least offensive as possible, and also use inclusive language.

Ability to convert images or pixel PDFs into editable electronic text

We also have the skills to convert old printed articles, that have text as an image, into electronic editable text, the technical term is OCR (optical character reading) scanning, that converts text that is not editable or is as a pixel image, into electronic text, that is editable.

Contact us, or contact authors

Any issues contact us, and we can forward on any emails to authors, that is fine.

Thanks for reading!
