3 cheers for the New MGoBlog

Despite some minor problems and stylistic disagreements, (comment boxes should be wider to take up less vertical space) the potential for the new setup is awesome.  With the diary posts and forums there's so much interesting content and it's coming from every direction.  Talk about a great way to waste time at work! Thanks for all the hard work Brian! *hip*hip*hooray*

I love the new site too; it is quite slick. The only negative I see is that there are so many different comment threads that it is easy to miss some good stuff unless you constantly re-visit the various threads (a bit of a pain in the ass) you're interested in. But with the old, single, ongoing holoscan thread, it was awkward revisting a topic brought up only an hour earlier. Here, the various treads stay on topic and you can address stuff brought up much earlier. I think that this more than offsets the benfits of the single thread. Besides, on the old site I couldn't post a picture of my dogs all decked out in M shirts.

@Blue Durham: Click on the "more" icon in the BGoBoard (and then through the folder). It'll give you a list of each individualized comment forums and if there are any new comments since you last visited, who commented last, etc. It's quite awesome, actually, I I think it'll be exactly what you're looking for. The new layout is awesome.
