Hello World!

Rabid 'shipper that I am, I've been following the progress of our current poll with some small measure of interest - and have found myself quite surprised by the results so far. While I did expect a large number of people to click the 'wait and see' option, I was rather taken aback to discover that more people are really looking forward to it than there are of people like me who have a bad - and somewhat nauseous - gut feeling about the whole thing. It's not by much, but it really does make me wonder - whatever happened to everyone believing what I thought they should. I mean, come on. You'll all meant to agree with me. It's not fair that you don't.

In other news, we just discovered something of a glitch when it comes to viewing the site with Netscape - particularly version 3. I do believe that the version 3 bug in particular very nearly gave my dear co-editor a heart-attack when he first saw it. Now, much as I his discomfiture amusing, and that it should all be fixed now, we'd really appreciate it if people would let us know about these things - we're both primarily IE users and don't always remember to check with other browsers as often as we should.
