Blog Note: New Face, New Contributor, and a Big Thank-You

Morning, Shakers! Since it's taking awhile to get the new dedicated server online, I thought it was time to overhaul the "hurricane party headquarters." Plus, we all seemed to need a new view, something fresh, a little sweep of the cobwebs. The functionality is all pretty much the same, although when you click "Open Wide" to read an extended post, it will open up in-page, which addresses previously expressed concerns about page-loading time for Shakers without high-speed connections. (Just click "Shut up" to collapse the post again when you're done!) Permalinks, however, will still work the same way. A million zillion thanks to Space Cowboy for his help.

In other blog news, we've lost a Kathy, but we've gained a Chet Scoville—who has been, first in his incarnation as The Green Knight and now as himself at The Vanity Press, one of my longest-running daily reads and has been an awesomely supportive cohort since like Day Two of opening the doors at Shakespeare's Sister. He's just a great guy and an excellent blogger, and we're pleased to have him.

I also need to take a moment to give a long overdue thank-you to Shaker Rehmeyer, who made a generous charitable donation that will really help Shakesville stay afloat over the next couple of months. I am profoundly appreciative for his support and kindness and generosity; he is such a good egg, deeply committed to the progressive cause way beyond Shakesville, and I thank him hugely from the bottom of my heart for caring about this community so much. (((hug)))

And thank you, Shakers, for hanging in there, as always. Carry on…
