On a related note, the new site design is all done — its pretty slick — and the programmers are working on importing every last post and comment.
I had a few goals with the redesign:
1) Have the site load much faster: We did that by cleaning up all the loose junk on the front page that had accumulated using tabs, moving to my own domain, and moving all of the audio/video to a tab so as not to slow down the front page.
2) Clean up the design: I like the current design, but its been a few years and I wanted something fresh. We came up with something neat — with a little animation — and a simple navigation system.
3) Create additional space for related material: Essentially, all of the various stuff I do is spread out all over the place. The new design allows me to tie everything together, in one place.
I expect after the Fourth of July weekend, we should be good to go. I’ll maintain both sites, forwarding everything from here to there . . .
