New Theme – Pardon the Dust

February 05, 2013 / by

So we’re working on a new theme now.  We have many reasons – including better tablet and phone support, and so on – but there are apparently a few bugs when we implemented it on the live server.  Despite our testing, there are always a few odd things that just can’t be anticipated. So please pardon us for a few days while we work to iron out the wrinkles.  And when it’s all live and working well, we’ll write a more in-depth article about what’s changed, why and why you should be excited. In the meantime, we thank you for your patience.
