What is int13h?


We've spent years trying to work this one out and in the end we decided we didn't like the answers we came up with. So, like any dedicated group of people, we forgot about it for a decade. Then the question reared it's ugly head again, and we thought about it some more. After a good couple of seconds or so we decided it probably wasn't worth the effort. That's why there has been more website redesigns than there has been content.

What is The Gibson?


The Gibson is the workhorse of int13h, it pumps the oil around the the int13h towers and without it, you wouldn't even be reading this.

Through the years The Gibson has been seen in many forms, some pretty, some not so much. It's dedication to the endless task is unwavering and has never been questioned. It has seen all forms of operating systems, wildly exotic hardware and crazy cooling systems. It has never been anything less than interesting and uncooperative. It is an enigma of its own twisted wreckage and maybe, just maybe, one day it will find peace and we'll get a fully compatible hardware/operating system for us to abuse.

What is the Heavy Engine?


It's the dirty, dirty little engine that could. Seriously it's dirty. It takes the stuff, puts other stuff in that, shines it up real nice then in a medium bowl it beats cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Gradually it will add the sweetened condensed milk, beating constantly. Oh god yes. When half of the milk has been added, it adds the lemon juice and beats until smooth. Of course after that it will add the remaining sweetened condensed milk until the mixture is smooth. Finally it will pour into graham cracker crust and chill for at least one hour. 8 servings.

What Technologies did we use?



FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium® and Athlon™), amd64 compatible (including Opteron™, Athlon™64, and EM64T), ARM, IA-64, PowerPC, PC-98 and UltraSPARC® architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX® developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.

Apache Web Server

The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and Windows NT. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards.


PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. Much of its syntax is borrowed from C, Java and Perl with a couple of unique PHP-specific features thrown in. The goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically generated pages quickly.


PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness. It runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Tru64), and Windows.


jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

JQuery UI

jQuery UI provides abstractions for low-level interaction and animation, advanced effects and high-level, themeable widgets, built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library, that you can use to build highly interactive web applications.


jQuery.Hotkeys plugin lets you easily add and remove handlers for keyboard events anywhere in your code supporting almost any key combination. It takes one line of code to bind/unbind a hot key combination.


This plugin is yet another product from my development work on Build It With Me. I wanted a sweet & simple custom tooltip, but nothing I found seemed to be smart enough for what I needed. I needed a custom tooltip that behaved just like the browser tooltip, and that is exactly what TipTip does!


SyntaxHighlighter is a fully functional self-contained code syntax highlighter developed in JavaScript.


Processing.js is an open programming language for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions for the web without using Flash or Java applets. Processing.js uses Javascript to draw shapes and manipulate images on the HTML5 Canvas element. The code is light-weight, simple to learn and makes an ideal tool for visualizing data, creating user-interfaces and developing web-based games.


DataTables is a plug-in for the jQuery Javascript library. It is a highly flexible tool, based upon the foundations of progressive enhancement, which will add advanced interaction controls to any HTML table.
