About the Authors

Stapeliads.info is the result of an idea by Loukie Viljoen and Fabio d'Alessi.

Years ago Loukie, from his house in South Africa, was posting his photos and habitat pictures on the Yahoo! Groups mailing list dedicated to Stapeliads. One evening Fabio, from his house in Italy, contacted Loukie offering his help to build up a site to allow people to enjoy the pictures and plethora of information Loukie had to share.

In a world where everybody seems to be struggling to patent everything in order to make as much money as possible, the meeting of two folks living on two opposite sides of the planet and willing only to help the community and put their efforts, passion and work available to anyone, produced stapeliads.net.

We hope that you will appreciate the site, but, most important, that you will understand and share our philosophy of free and open information for everybody, joining our project.

You can find more about the ideators of the site by looking at their personal pages (meet fabio and loukie now).

About the Site: Hardware and OS

Stapeliads.info runs on a good old linux server.

About the Site: Software

The site has been built by Fabio d'Alessi between 2004 and 2006 on the following infrastructure:

The whole portal and site architecture has been designed from scratch by the author with the sole help of the W3C Documentation, an ASCII editor (nedit 5.3) and a graphic manipulation tool (gimp 2.2).

In other words the whole site has been built with public domain software and documentation openly available on the internet.
