Using the QED website

Yes, it's just a website, almost like any other. We make use of a hosting service, because we aren't big enough to justify the expense of dedicated servers and the like. It means that there are one or two little restrictions on what we can do, but by and large, these only affect us as we create content; you as readers can consume the content as normal.

But just as any set of books will have its own little specialities, we too have conventions for the website. In the text of this page and in the pages linked below, we describe the way we operate.

 

On a more general note, we are committed to preserving a balance between richness and simplicity on our website. We frown on egregious gimmicks (so beloved of other sites, even those in our own subject area) such as non-discretionary audio, video, flashing and slideshows: their novelty value is very short-lived, and some may be medically dangerous for some viewers. In any case, they are just a waste of bandwidth.
