2008-07-22: Website renovation

As you can no doubt see, we've given the website a face lift. The new site was designed by Vidal Tripsa and turned into a MediaWiki skin by Galatea Gynoid. We found that our old site was just too dark, and that for what we want to run our own website for, disseminating information about Extropia, MediaWiki works much better than Drupal, and for those features that MediaWiki doesn't handle as well, other sites (like Wordpress and Ning) do a much better job. So, new image and new engine. Enjoy!
