Hard to believe this site went live a little over five years ago. While there’s never been anything cutting edge about the place, time and technology have moved on. With monitors getting ever bigger, corkgo’s been getting relatively narrower and less space efficient. The old Ocadia theme wasn’t designed to handle a lot of the newer wordpress features, so attempts to activate stuff was hit and miss. To address these issues, I’ve (finally) switched over to Suffusion, which should scale well with whatever size your browser window is set to. There are a lot of other bells and whistles that I’ll now be able to play around with, so if something appears broken overnight, it’s probably just a test. If it’s still broken the next day, let me know.
