"If you don't know, honey, why'd you just say so?
Cause I need this now more than I ever did.
If you don't well, honey, then you don't.
So here we are now, a sip of wine a sip of water.
Someday maybe, maybe someday we'll be smarter.
And I'm sorry that I'm such a mess, I drank all my money could get and, took everything you let me have and then I never loved you back.
If you don't don't know, why would you say so?"
- Jimmy Eat World, "If You Don't, Don't"
When caffeine doesn't work we crank out our favourite power-emo-ballads here in the DiS office, and today the sentiment of the song seems quite apt. Something had to give, and after two years of the previous site being 'semi-finished', we decided to gut everything behind the scenes and rebuild our baby from scratch. The trouble is, some of the bigger changes can't be done until this site is live. This also means we can drip feed new features, rather than overwhelming you with billions all at once.
We hope you like what we've done with the place. This really is only the beginning of a whole heap of changes but let me run you through it as it's far more than an aesthetic shift. We don't expect this site to be perfect but have a rummage around and post a comment below with any bugs you've found. If the problem is visual (boxes hanging over the top of each other and nasty stuff like that) then could you let us know whether you're on mac/windows/linux and which browser and version of the browser you're using and maybe do us a screen grab too? The site should be perfect for Firefox, Safari and IE7 but let us know.
The page names have changed so if you have any pages bookmarked you may need to update these but they should forward you to the right place.
So here we are then, it's been a lot of work to get us here so please be gentle with her and give us a week or so to finish things off...

P.S. If you really don't like it, tough - you'll get used to it just like the previous versions ; )
