Thanks Steven!
It is a real kick ass feeling to see your work being used on a site like :-D
I am very sorry not to be able to be more involved with Forrest at the 
moment.  Payed work is taking all my time (and more than that too :-( ).

I will be back!

One of the things I am doing is technical editing a book from Andy King 
(the man behind and about Web Site 
Optimization for New Riders.  It's all about making the site as fast as 
possible without compromising the content.  It involves CSS implementation, 
HTML optimization, JavaScript optimization, URL rewriting, server side 
compression, and a LOT more).  It's due in January.
I will rewrite the skin to use all the techniques described in this book 
and still keep the browser compatibility we have today.  This can speed up 
the site by 200% (twice as fast!)

One important question : Do we really need Netscape 4.x compatibility??
