I have never been able to stand more than 5 minutes of a MOOC video before telling myself 'OK, I'll find a proper textbook.'.
I usually have a basic view of the MOOC topic ; at least the textbook allows me to skim it and dig deeper on the points that I'm interested in.
Just sitting at my desk and watching a video is usually boring and requires to watch the complete segment before realising it was not what I was looking for.
The same goes for all these video tutorials : why bother making a 5-min youtube video on some software installation when a one-page text with command lines would be appropriate?

and she took a few weeks to adapt, now she uses it (mostly) trouble-free. I also enabled Desktop sharing via VNC to avoid driving to her place every time she complains 'I had my icon here and now it's gone' or 'It does not behave as berfore' or 'The menu to send my mails is gone'.
Her grand-children also spend lots of time on this computer while she takes care of them, and I used to clean lots of malware after them... not anymore.
I have to agree on all the previous comments : I'm only here for the comments, not for visual candy. My suggestion is to initiate a poll with the different site design options ; seeing all the comments here I bet the results will by "90% - keep curent design 10%- Get us CmdrTaco back".
I, for one, welcome our new chocolate eating, gold-piling overlords (I live in France at 10 km from the Swiss border...)
I wish you were fully backed up. I hope you Sublimed somehow.
I really like his novels, I see him in the lienage of Clarke and Herbert in his own Galaxy.
