I’ve spent much of the last four days receiving and half-reading confused, panicky e-mails from the IT people at the National Post. The upshot of most of the missives was that the NationalPost.com website was in the midst of a major transition, and that if I or anyone else were so unwise as to upload a weblog entry at the wrong moment, there would be nothing left but a smoldering crater where once stood the thriving suburb of Don Mills. I, of course, don’t have to be told twice not to do any work. Most of the time I don’t even need to be told once.
All the tinkering behind these e-mails has now paid off in an outstanding new look for the National Post website. Check out how classy my Friday column about the Iraq War looks with the new design: you’d almost think that guy knew was he was talking about!
