A bit of background informationThe pages have been designed from scratch by Teemu Pärssinen, our web designer (his home pages are only in Finnish, unfortunately). He has done an amazing job in turning our sometimes more than vague requests into reality.
After the layout was "locked", Petteri "dRD" Pyyny took over the pages and started transferring the old pages to the new layout. Many of the pages were actually re-coded to improve performance and functionality, and all of the pages were optimised and tweaked.
In addition to the new looks you'll find some new functionality from the site. But you can count on us adding nice little new features in the near future, as soon as we have ironed out the inevitable bugs and problems with the new page, and sat back for a while and taken a breath!
If you feel a bit lost, please take a look at the small help page we have put together. There's also a page map available, that outlines the structure of the site. Please report any problems via the feedback form. If for some reason it doesn't work, you can also email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unfortunately we did not manage to finish the Finnish version of the new layout in time for the launch. It will be released in January, 2004.
