Over the next couple of days I’ll be making some system changes to the site. You’ll notice that the look has already changed to accommodate some forthcoming features. If you hate/love the look, or experience any hiccups, let me know in the comments or by e-mail.
[Update] Thanks to those who have emailed me comments! Having beta testers is a great aid. I will be adding back the recent comments function so that readers can easily track ongoing converstations. I’ve also added the papers blog, a link to which can be found to the right. If you are interested in adding papers contact me for directions. I’ve also added a number of new ways to syndicate the blog. I think I’ve worked out all the bugs in the theme but let me know if you get errors or find it hard to read.

  • Hi Matthew,
    I think the new, clean and light look is sweet. Well organized too.
    The only thing I’d suggest is making the maximum width wider – I’m working at I think 1280, and the site kind of hovers in the middle of the screen. Can you make it, say, 85% of the width of the browser window?
    Keep up the good work!

    Matthew,
    Two quick things. I’m having the same problem as Mike apparently with the ‘remember personal info’ button.
    Second, one of the things I liked most about the old format was the ‘recent comments’ part on the right. By looking at it, I could see what discussion was taking place without having to remember the current number of comments on multiple posts or clicking on them all. I know it took up some space, but I for one liked it. Maybe others are glad to see it go though

    Somehow I missed the update. So ignore my second comment. Sorry about that.
