About the site
The purpose of this site is to show my raytracing images, and also to promote raytracing art and the use of free raytracers, specially POV-Ray. If you're wondering about the name of this site, it's a sort of descriptive slogan of my creative process: trial & error (see section Techniques > Work methods for a longer description).
Images, sources and applications are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License except where noted otherwise (as with works not authored exclusively by me, or which where already licensed exclusively to others).
Please, do not download the entire site automatically, specially if you are behind a fast connection, because I need to have at least some breaks to be able to navigate, receive mail, etc... if you have to do it, please at least use some tool to limit the bandwidth used to a few Kbps... I would really appreciate it
This site is using CMS Made Simple for the web design and content management. Some of the site design images were created with The Gimp. The site must be accessible and functional without style sheets, but they are really important for the site decoration.
The server hosting the domain ignorancia.org is an old Mac Mini I had lying around, as the old PC server was about to die. This box runs GNU/Linux Fedora to serve these web pages with Apache, and also handles all my mail with Sendmail. It is connected to the Internet with a home ADSL line (1Mb/330Kb). Thanks to Zoneedit for providing the free DNS service.
And yes, the Mac Mini "stand" is actually the case of a PC power supply, "modded" to act as a cooling stand (everything inside was removed except the fan, which was wired to an USB connector and plugged into the back of the Mac Mini).
