Technical Notes

The purpose of this page is to describe the technical underpinnings of this site. As the note in the footers states, for best results, Javascript and Cookies should be enabled in your browser. The reasons are simple: web pages are isolated bundles of data. There is no concept of state, such as the contents of a shopping cart or whether or not you are logged in to a web site. To handle this architecture, either Javascript, Cookies or both technologies, will be used by any of the web sites.


The use of Javascript on this site allows us to offer multiple methods of organizing and displaying information for a fuller web site experience. In fact, it is the use of Javascript that allows us to display and manipulate the cookies you see in the table above.
