I'm hearing that the new-look site looks a bit dodgy using the Firefox browser. I'll try and iron out the problems as soon as possible. If you're using another browser and the site looks dodgy in that too, please let me know
. That's assuming you can read this... eek!
Most of the display problems with Firefox have been resolved, although there's still a couple of odd little things that need sorting, but at least now it looks nearly how I wanted it to!

There's still a few little bits to finish off, but I think it's ready for you to get stuck into. If you do spot any glaring errors, or think I've made anything worse, please let me know
. And likewise, if you like whats happened, let me know
as well. Cheers.
