The pretty new graphic banner on our site was made for us courtesy of Rowan. (If some of you can't see it, you're not alone--I can see it on one of my computers and not on the other.) We're still tweaking the design, and will hopefully be getting a color scheme that matches the graphic, but I wanted to thank Rowan in the meantime.

By the way, the photograph is by Rick Harrison. I need to figure out how to add a credit line to the board, which I will be doing shortly.

Just FYI, the photo is of Kirkstall Abbey that I stretched out a bit and added the text.

You might try clearing your cache and see if that helps. For a little while this morning I couldn't see it, then it suddenly appeared.

I noticed this immediately and tho't, oh, how neat. Thanks, Rowan. BTW I've been curious about the identity of the structure in your avatar.
