A New Design

After spending a year using a website layout that I was not thrilled with, I’ve gone ahead and created a layout that I much prefer. One thing I really like is the slider at the top of the home page, which I will use to draw attention to “feature” articles. However, several people have complained that even on a fast Internet connection, the slider takes a while to load. I’ve tried some behind the scenes performance tweaks to try and speed things up. I’d appreciate feedback letting me know

  1. what you think of the new design;
  2. are you having any performance issues with the website; and
  3. what type of internet connection are you using?

Tomorrow will begin the next chapter in the life cycle of the “Ramblings of a Graduate Student” blog! I hope this site will be more interactive in 2011 than 2010. Stay tuned!
