We came back from WebBuilder with a lot of email... "flooded" was an understatement. Apparently we have been Slashdotted (thanks for the heads up Pekka!). And a lot of readers have emailed to tell us about our design and markup issues. Please, before you email, understand that we are aware that we are currently not using a CSS layout and that our pages don't print well and that we use spacer gifs and all the ugly things people used to do quite some time ago. Yes, we know. This is because the design you see, while 100% valid according to the W3C, was created in 1998. Yes we know that it should be updated, this is why over the last year we have been orchestrating a redesign, rebranding and rearchitecting of the site. Please bare with us as we complete this over the next 3 months.
