Post # 6,000

Yes, that is correct -- this meaningless meta-data point is post number 6,000

Here is what the specifics look like before this one:

•  5,999 Posts
•  2,066 TrackBacks

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 . . .
