|Long Description||Now available for the first time in flexible covers, the Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dictionaries consist of parallel English and foreign language word-lists containing 28,000 items for each language. Based on the premise that pictures can more readily and clearly convey certain kinds of information than definitions and explanations alone can, each dictionary contains a list of vocabulary relating to a subject together with a picture illustrating that subject.|
Each double-page spread links the words by number to the picture situation drawn from everyday life. Approximately 384 sections cover a broad range of subjects from astronomy to supermarket, automobile to swimming, ballet to plants, offshore drilling to bees and beekeeping, graphic art to invertebrates, fabulous creatures to nuclear energy, and much more. Each dictionary also includes regional variations in the foreign language terms used in different countries as well as differences between British and American English. Fully alphabetized indexes refer the reader to the various subjects and contexts in which a word is used, providing not only a guide to the correct translation but also a key to the vocabulary of an entire subject.
Essential references for general readers, students, translators, travelers, and businessmen, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Dictionaries serve as valuable supplements to bilingual dictionaries for both speakers of English and of the foreign languages.

Although we have had a couple days lately when we have been down for maintenance, looking back over the last couple years we can say that we have been available 99.5% of the time and that isn't too bad at all.
With the latest outage, we struggled to replace damaged equipment and bring the new boxes online as quickly as possible. We now think that we have everything up and running but we will keep monitoring for little things that may have gotten missed.
We feel so bad when ever the system is off line for more than a few minutes or for any unexpected events. But to put thinks into prespective, we looked back over the past 2 years and found that we have been off line completely for less than 100 hours with the longest period being this last outage when we ended up doing a full rebuild on our main server box.
With all things considered we think we are doing pretty good for a small company managing multiple web sites as well as our regular day-to-day business.
We will continue to improve and make efforts to reduce future down time. Even at 99.5% up time, there is room for improvement.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
