Site Updates

October 22, 2001

In the last two months there has been a bit of cosmetic work on the site, and some more articles were released. We have just completed a major overhaul of the sites code. We are about 90 percent of the way to moving the code over to XHTML 1.0, the next version of HTML. For users that use a recently released browser the site will look the same, individuals still using Netscape 4 will have extra spacing but the content will render correctly. The code has been shrunk down, which will provide for shorter page loads. Newer articles now have larger and higher resolution images. We added support for the Site Navigation Bar that was added to Mozilla beginning with version 0.9.5, this feature allows users quick access to all parts of the site and allows for navigating the site without having to understand the intricacies of the site.

Nearing the first anniversary we are releasing the second version of the site. The code has been cleaned up, there is a new header, borders were placed around the pages, and the articles have been reorganized. Look for a lot of new articles coming in the near future. Taking a feature seen on Ars Technica and other sites, we are adding PDF versions of some of the articles to the site. Right now there basically the web versions of the articles converted to PDF using Mac OS X's built-in PDF creation feature. Currently you can find them in the software and hardware sections. We would love to get some feedback from people on what they think of the PDF's and what we can do to improve them. Email Us

The site has been completely overhauled, with a brand new look. The disjointed look of the many sections has now been replaced with a constant design scheme. Links are now broken up into three colors, dark blue represents links to other pages on the site, green represents links to pages outside the site, and orange represents links to various image, sounds, movie, and software files. While knowing this is not necessary to navigate the site, it gives regular visitors a heads up. Also added was a new search feature, using the search of menu bar allows quick access to specific information. Finally, the news section will back up by the end of this week.
