We're testing a slightly altered design. If you spot a serious issue with the design in terms of appearance or function, please post here. We're aware that some elements of the old template are duplicated in areas.
This change, which again is minor, is a step in the direction of a responsive CSS design. Over the next week most icons will be replaced with phone/tablet friendly icons (larger - spaced - easier to touch) among other things.
Also, general feedback would be appreciated. The site statistics (picture count) will return.
