I finally got around to updating the old template for this blog. Let me know if anything is out of whack or CSS needs to be changed. I also created a google + page. Once multiple admins are allowed, I'd hope to be able to use it as a starting place for longer discussions. At least that what I'm thinking, but I'm not quite sure exactly how to use g+ pages yet.
For example, it would be a great way to field questions as opposed to email, but I understand that notifications aren't automatic - so I wouldn't immediately know if someone asked something. Anyways, if interested, click the "badge" to see the page (nothing there to see yet, though).
