upgrade seems to be done fine, i'm starting on the new look, but it's going to be piecemeal - and live - so please bear with the half-dressed look in the mean time :)
update: i'm having major problems with the text wrapping - i don't dislike it on the whole, but i'm finding it impossible to add a hard break where necessary. so pictures and text are aligning strangely at the moment, sorry. it's pretty otherwise, though, don't you think?
update: phew, patterns should all be fine again now. please let me know if you find any broken links or unexplained weirdnesses.
