|Long Description||This marvellous photographic journey from the Atlantic to the Red Sea, reveals 10 million km2 of extreme aridity in Northern Africa known to the world as the Sahara. Here is a book that invokes the fascinating and diverse beauty this desert, its spectacular dunes, stone fortresses, Eden-like oases, hellish sandstorms and magical effects of light. From the white sands of Arguin (Mauritania) to the coloured banks of the Niger river (Mali), from the rock paintings of Tassili N'Ajjer (Algeria) to the unsuspected lakes of Ennedi (Chad), and all the way to the white desert of Egypt, Bourseiller has captured the subtleties of the Great South - a naked, mineral environment enlivened by noble and splendid faces encountered along its scorched tracks.|

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.
