A first reaction is that the archives work -  how can one fix something that
isn't broke?

A second reaction is that there might be an additional area for submissions
of examples, screen shots, and code in ascii text?  Would that prove useful?

Graphics and attachments and copy & paste are useful to make understanding
flow when one is having a brain flat, at least for me.  My web site is stale
now but I found that screen shots and actual code made a lot of difference
in my own understanding of what is happening.   I offer this comment in this
way, not because I want David to be creating lots of new graphics, but
because if we all had a common format & resolution to furnish screen shots,
and a common way to display code, then the site would have a common look &
feel, making it easier to navigate.

I am not offering to help as I have no web design experience period.
But I do want to offer my 2 cents worth.

I have no interest in snazziness, or fluff, or "wow way cool" in a web
site whatsoever. I am interested in substance, speed, easy navigation,
and general usefulness. It could be entirely text with no graphics
whatsoever as far as I am concerned as long as it provides answers or
information on what I am looking for. If using graphics helps in that
regard, good. Using graphics for style only doesn't interest me.

Yes, I'm strange, but that's the way I feel.
