New Site Design

Article written: 21 May , 2003

I’ve been frustrated with the previous design of Universe Today for the better part of a year now, so I finally got some time together and redesigned the site from top to bottom. While I was at it, I also took better advantage of the publishing system I’m using (Article Manager from interactivetools.com) to tie in links to other resources on the site.

I also changed my webhost. My previously fabulous webhost (Communitech) was bought by another service provider whose technical support wasn’t nearly as good (that’s me putting it delicately). So, I switched to a new provider called Blue Virtual. It’s way faster, cheaper, and has a bunch of new software that I’m going to be taking advantage of.

Instead of majordomo, my new server uses a service called Mailman, which seems to be 100x better. It’s got a handy web interface so you can all manage your subscribe/unsubscribe stuff yourself.

So, thanks for your patience, please give me any feedback you can ([email protected]): either on the design or any problems you find with the new site (I’m still fixing older articles so they work in the new format, some of their links will be broken).

Take care,
