If the web site isn't that critical with time, I can help after my  
thesis defense (by end of march I'll be free). If help is needed, I'm

I agree with a restyle of the site, rss feeds are a very good idea. I  
don't know anything about current web-related tools, where I can find  
some examples of those?

By the way, was the osx preference pane developed further?
