New Website Launch

    "It looks so cool... and new!" -- Anonymous Coward

By now, you should have noticed the totally new redesigned website that is running. The server's now been upgraded to Fedora Core 4. Along with that, we've put in a CMS (Content management system) running Drupal. Much of the content from the old site has been migrated into the new database-driven website, however, some pages are still rough around the edges.
