Patience, grasshopper. There are currently bits of web site all over the floor at Oolite Secret HQ (Open 11:00–15:00 except on Tuesdays, all visits to be booked in advance).

The screen could be wider or bigger in general, maybe, but since I don't know what the reaction would be anyway (or if seventh site is already finally chosen), I saved the moments needed to resize the screenframe.

I should probably mention that I’m working on putting seventh’s design into use, after some minor adaptation work. And by “working on”, I mean “I started on it several weeks ago and then forgot all about it.”

I resized and sharpened it - I think this added even more pixelish and comic-like look - to use it as desktop background. Is very nice. :)

Good idea guys, a website redesign would help attract more people to our corner of the ooniverse :)
I'd be happy to knock some artwork/banners etc together if needed. Check out my Deepspace OXP oolite page...

Oh, right.

The new design is now live.
