Very Technical Info and Credits
Jim Garlick, for his help in setting up the pizza account and his continual support
Spider Dude, for creating tons of topping bitmaps (including the first round!), and for making the new pizza bullet
Jason "Boy Wonder" Gibbs, for his excellent work on the Pizza Server logo and animation
Karim, for the initial implementation of the HTML pizza order page
Jennifer, for the bitmap of the "garlick" topping, especially her beautiful work on his forehead
Vulcan in the U.K., for his Gift Shop Wall suggestions
Walter Piovesan, for his pizza links page idea
Leif, for pestering me to work on the server while I was reading news ;-)
And everyone else who gave me their support and criticism. Especially to Karim who informed me that I was "such a dork" for ever embarking on this project in the first place...
If I've left your name off this list, mail me and I'll add it...
"makepizza" was written completely in C. Some of the services are based in ksh scripts.
Update: makepizza has been retired and replaced with the faster "renderpie". Support scripts are now written in Python.
The Internet Pizza Server needs more toppings! You! Yes, you can have your name added to the list of really cool people who have had a topping graphic used on the Server! If you have a wacky, really bizarre, completely strange, or perhaps normal topping bitmap that you'd like to see included, mail it to me in a common picture format (GIF, JPEG, PCX, IFF, TIF, PPM, or something) and I'll see if I can't get it on there. For a size reference, pepperoni is 30x30 pixels.
