Pierce, it's been since around May Day that observers.org has been on this new blog format, and it's flown nicely. We've got plenty of traffic from a range of people. The troops have followed the change. I'm not an urTACo but have been in since December '88, was listadmin for years. I've been relieved and delighted to see how folks have responded.
Good design, John, you deserve a lot of credit. Thanks.
