One or two of you may notice a change in the site?
While the changes to the appearance may be minor, there are enormous changes underneath.
This site is coming up to its sixth birthday, and all that time it has been running on the same theme. OK, the design has changed a few times but the underlying theme has always been the same. It has been hacked and modified. It has been rewritten more than a few times. It has changed so much that the original code is long gone and has been replaced with lots of chewing gum, string and the odd patch of masking tape.
A lot of things happen in six years. The code was beginning to leak. There was a large patch of rust developing in the sidebar and there was a nasty area of dry-rot in the header. There were some worrying settlement cracks in the foundations too. One corner of the Testimonials Page was held of on a pile of old telephone directories. It was time for some radical surgery.
All that is changed, but yet little has changed [I hope].
It’s a bit like demolishing a house and rebuilding it to exactly the same design but with modern materials, better insulation and double glazing.
Like all new houses there are bound to be problems, and I can’t check everything. If you find a leaky radiator, or the odd nail-head protruding then let me know and I’ll see if I can fix it.
I would ask you to be careful in the comments area though.
The paint is still a bit wet.
