We’ll be experimenting with different layouts over coming days and weeks, so don’t be surprised if the site’s appearance varies from one day to the next.
The old theme was beginning to show its age and in recent weeks had given up almost completely in its struggle to keep abreast of technological developments. It was gasping and creaking. People were complaining about the abysmally slow speed.
For now, at least, the slowness problem is fixed but there will probably be quite a bit of sorting and rearranging before we settle on a new layout. I might also introduce a few new ideas and play around with a few more. We”ll see.
