w00t! The redesign includes a couple of cool new features. Most notably, the old... uh... plain design, has been updated to this cool, new hex design. This includes visual updates all across the site, including the mailing list page, the about page, and the empty splash page.
The second thing the new site has that the old site sort of didn't is a project index page. I compiled all the work I've done and placed it in the projects page. It may still need reworking as time goes on, but I'm pretty happy with it so far.
One of the things I noticed when building the projects page is that I had never uploaded any footage from The Imhotep Project. So I uploaded it and listed it in the projects page.
Lastly, the comments on blog posts or project pages are post it notes. I think that's pretty darn cool. I had to do some minor PHP coding to allow the commenter to pick out which color post it they wanted to use, but I think it was totally worth it.
