: A new interface, completely late but at least not never...
Well, at long last, the COW has a new interface. It's been a long time coming and it's way overdue. I had gotten to where I just couldn't bear to look at the site anymore. The new look is far more balanced and in keeping with the whole idea and spirit of the COW. I am happier than you can imagine to see it as it had worn on my nerves for quite a long time but we were just too busy to deal with it. It finally just got to the point where I told Tim that I was going to just have to do it because it was more than I could bear anymore. When we designed the original COW, Eric, Kathlyn and I did it all -- aesthetics and mechanics -- in under two weeks, total. A complete original database-driven mySQL system, written from scratch, with many unique features and abilities that to this day most members have yet to dig to find. (For starters, it isn't an interface, it's three interfaces -- the classic threaded style, the topical type that some prefer, and the show-me-the-newest type that others find useful.) Now, at long last, I can live with it for a while -- how long? Who knows?
My offended visual senses can finally settle down -- for a while.
