Welcome to the new site!

Hello folks!

Welcome to the new site.  It’s a pleasure to have you here on my new site layout.  Please keep in mind this is just the framework for the new site…there’s a bunch of other stuff to do.

I am happy to present my new site layout.  The template is courtesy of Andreas Viklund, who was nice enough to post this template on open source web design.  The backend is still run by Expression Engine.  Far from a mere redesign, the organization of the information on this blog has changed as well.  Entries are split into summary and extended versions (more in line with classic blog organization), the forum has been re-themed, comments have a new look, I have a new image gallery up, I’ve retooled the Star Trek freighter section, and changed the categories.

The RSS has been upgraded to ATOM, and the podcast feed is working now. The site checks out as valid CSS, and I believe the new design is much cleaner.  I am, of course, very interested in what you think. Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts.
