Get ready! (Pardon the dust) New look coming tomorrow!|

Look out! New site design coming!
News updates will be a bit slow today, and visitors tomorrow morning may notice more than a little "construction dust", as we're getting ready to roll out a mammoth overhaul of our entire site. In the works for *way* longer than we like to think about, the new look is a lot cleaner visually, better organized (we hope), faster-loading (much), and will make available tons of content that was buried and otherwise difficult to access on the old site. (Lots of great articles from our biweekly newsletter that were previously buried in the newsletter archives.)
We plan to start the cutover tomorrow about 8am EDT. If all goes well, it should be complete within an hour or less. (If all *doesn't* go well, who knows?) It should happen pretty quick though, because we've converted the entire site (thousands of pages) to use templates, letting us very quickly change the look/feel of things in the future.
Since the change should be able to happen so quickly, we're not going to totally "down" the site, but there could be loose ends hanging on into the day.
Wish us luck, check us out tomorrow afternoon EDT!
