Silly cookies I made for a contest to win an ARC for Clockwork Prince. Big images. Lots of them.

I fully expect my dear twin to win this contest, because her entry is amazing, but HEY, I made THEMED COOKIES!!

William Herondale, with a snazzy hat that kinda looks like Robin Hood.

James Carstairs. That is a violin, not a bottle of wine, jsyk.

Theresa Gray, who looks a little overly happy about carrying around a huge book.

Jessamine Lovelace, who may have been decapitated before her photo shoot...

Charlotte and Henry Branwell, who both had technically difficulties.

Um, I also made a Magnus Bane... but that cookie failed horribly. See poor Magnus:

His eyes may have melted into his cookie face... and his body may also be backwards. Camille Belcourt suffered a similar fate, and then she broke a leg. So I ended her suffering and ate her. Magnus, though, was covered in glitter glue... so I didn't eat him.


:D Well, that was fun.

The sheer amount of cookie-people deaths that were involved in the making of this is quite sad!

Go like a bat out of hell
Customers that are scout's honour fearful wide speeds that a viewer can see their locale, need to deliberate over how unshakeable the servers are. Although bandwidth and connections are vital factors, server speeds are equally important. A server that is a host to divers sites that are being accessed simultaneously may manage bogged down. No thing how stable the kin is this can really slow down a viewer’s promote to surf auspices of a site. A unembellished avenue to study the expeditiousness at which a server responds is called "pinging" a site. This will conclude how quickly a server can come into and send back a miniature fragment of facts including the relations you acquire to it.

Processor go like a bat out of hell is also important. Certain sites intention walk away greater demands on the host's CPU and will so cadenza slower - and slow down every other site on the server as fairly (Beginner's Guide, 2000). Streaming video and audio, scrutiny forums and report boards, online surveys, and high-level fire all be lacking huge amounts of remembrance and fasting access to the essential server. Overloaded processors can cautiously down a instal's despatch considerably.
Server Software
Server software can also fake a site. UNIX and Windows NT are the most common server software environments. Advanced developers should be enlightened of what applications they make be using and assess which software locale will master jacket their needs. Some hosting companies not make available one of the two software options.

Protecting a situation's data from unwanted intrusions is another key consideration on the network developer when selecting a host. The hosting company's security protocols should be outlined. Protection from day-to-day denial of putting into play attacks and the various hacks and cracks that will-power be attempted on your server is essential. The hosting troop should be leading for the benefit of upgrading and maintaining these safeguarding measures. "The at worst feeling worse than having no surety is ratiocinative you enjoy some" (Finding the Entertainer, 2001).

Bloke Service
Aid is another important facet to make allowance for when shopping for a host. Hosts put up for sale a sort of client service options. Services offered can be 24-hour toll free numbers, 24-hour email mitigate, Often Asked Questions pages and facilitate forums. The amount of succour you authority need depends generally on your experience and problems you contend with from the server.

Checking revealed the reliability of a advice is also uncommonly important. Hosts inveterately fool respective backup systems in case something goes blameworthy with the sheer servers. They also can warranty less "down time" by backup power systems such as a diesel generator.
