Actually, it did change :-)

The thing is that the public site might not be updated immediately, but
at a differed time (like every 30 minutes).

So now, if you go to,
you can see your changes !

Yes, I know, it's a bit complictaed, but it seems you successuly
navigated through the maze, thank you for that !Brian

At this point, it might be useful for us to add a page explaining how to
update the web site...

Many thanks Brian !
