Website 20.2 Revision

Today I have launched a minor revision to the web site, bringing the version to 20.2. As has been my tradition for many years, these minor revisions are where I start trying out new ideas that, if well-received, become part of the next major redesign.

The biggest change is a darker blue theme, which is what probably stands out out immediately. I’ve also added a little bit of fancy, new-age, ‘AJAX-y’ code that displays some tasteful Off on a Tangent branding at the top left of the browser once you’ve scrolled down below the header. I’ve made a number of other minor tweaks and adjustments throughout. Let me know what you think!

Note that the little floating branding thing won’t work in Internet Explorer 6 (it screwed things up in IE6, so I basically made IE6 ignore all that code). If you’re still using IE6 you need to upgrade to IE7 or, better yet, to Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or Opera now. Website 20.2 will be the absolute last version of this website tested for compatibility with IE6, as support for this ancient and badly-coded Microsoft browser is no longer worth the hours of extra time and effort.
