The site is changing to a newer, cleaner look and feel. It has these benefits for readers:
- Smaller logo: more room for content
- Fixed-width body text column: less effort for the eye
- Breadcrumb navigation for easy backtracking to broader pages
- Body text sent before navigation: makes life easier for screen reader users
It also eases updates:
- Shorter boilerplate per page: increased maintainability over the previous SSI-emulation scheme
- Upgrade to newer PHP: no need to work around 4.0.x deficiencies
The transition will happen page by page. Pages that have not updated will still use the old look and feel.

Chester is in the wild world now. Mr. Resetti admires his anti-cheating ethic.

Pino and Chester wrote a 200 line FAQ for the mission of buying your house in Animal Crossing. It is designed for the GameCube version; the techniques should also apply to the DS version. Here's ACPG: Abundant Cash Player's Guide.

I beat Animal Crossing, having paid off my house yesterday. Pino woke up this morning to find a golden statue by YoshiX station. Chester, not wanting to be one-upped, became more determined to get his own statue by Chadonn station.
And my Tetris dreams are getting cleaner. In my latest dream, I met Alexey Pajitnov, and all was friendly:
"My game?" He sounded surprised at the recognition that Tetris was his in a sense, given my reputation as a cloner.
"On the Nintendo version it has your name across the first screen: Alexey Pa-something."
He taught me how to pronounce the surname.
"I know you created Tetris; I just dispute your exclusive right to its rules."
And the conversation went off a different way.

I have been playing Animal Crossing for GameCube. No, I don't want nor need an X-Square-Circle (Xbox 360) to play Piñata Crossing; I have enough work as Pino@YoshiX. Nor will I try any of the Harvest Moon games until at least Harvest Moon (September 26).
Happy New Year
