Technical stuff

The site was originally developed from scratch by Matt Ots, allowing everything to be tailored specifically to the task in hand rather than trying to hack an existing piece of software. The system includes a secure web-based admin area allowing multiple editors and administrators with varying levels of control over inputting and editing data.
