Okay, well what do you think of the new look? After several months of programming it is finally done. I must apologize for the wait, as sometimes things do not work out the way you want.

This month as you can see we have several changes that we have made.

It is now easier than ever to navigate the site, you will notice that each page looks the same with the navigation links on the right hand side of the screen. Why the right? To be different I guess, that is the only reason. You will also notice that while you are on the default page for a section the hyper-link is shaded blue.

I do realize that with the advent of 56k modems that downloads are generally fast, but since most of the population still uses a 28.8 or 33.6 we need to program for them first. You will notice that all the pages look the same as well, this makes the site load faster.

We have reduced the number of different sections, so there is not as much hyper-linking around the site. Each section has it's own default page, with all articles printed for that section in it. They will stay there for good now that we have the site properly set up. So you can come back next month or next year and read something that you missed or use it for reference material.

Where Am I?
This is an easy way to see where you are in the site. Each "Where are you?" starts in the magazine section, and works down to where you are, each is linked to the previous page.

I would appreciate any comments you have on the magazine and its new layout. Do you like it, or hate it, let us know. This is the only way for us to design the site in a way you like.

You will see a few contests in the next while to. I have talked to several dive shops in the area and they are willing to give prizes for this. Keep on eye on the site for more information.

We are currently seeking advertisers for the site. Why? Currently we publish and pay for the site out of the editors (me) pocket. There is a lot of time and effort put into setting up a site like this every month, as well as paying for the space that it takes up. With advertising in the magazine, it will help to alleviate the monthly bills.

Well that is all I have to say for the month. Enjoy yourself.
