The purpose of this website is to share the knowledge I have acquired, and the experience I have accumulated.

- I built my website in 2006, I continue to add content, I maintain it, and I am its webmaster.
I put some tips for website building from my experience in the Internet Tips page.
- Graphic designer Michal Dalva designed most of the website,
Amir Zarrin from Iran designed the logo, Nadav designed the galleries' pages, and the rest I did.
- Amir Toister helped me with a creative solution to automatically create all gallery pages from Excel files. Great to have such friends!
