A small update

In the past few weeks I have worked on both some new content as well as what I think is a slightly improved user interface for this website. I think that the time has now come to start launching these improvements little by little.

The most visible change is probably the new menu system, which will allow the site to expand easier than what was the case with the previous menu. I have also rewritten parts of the Books and DVD sections, plus there are a couple of brand new sections covering Kurosawa Documentaries and movies Kurosawa was in some ways involved with (without being the director), plus some other topics.

More content will appear little by little in the coming weeks or months.

As for now, if you encounter anything strange with the website, do drop me a line.

PS. I’m afraid that I have to disappoint Ben, who wasn’t overly keen about the “content on the left” design when I introduced it with the previous update. I now think that it is here to stay. Personally, I have learnt to quite like it.

All right Vili, so far the new button system and the tweaked content is nice. And actually I’m fine now the left alligned page. So no worries.

Is it just me, or has the loading of the site actually got quite a bit slower with the new menu system? Or am I just paranoid?

Should the overall presentation in general be more streamlined, with less graphics?

I have not noticed the site loading slower, from various computers I used to check this site.

Any changes you have made to the site, have been for the better. I do not think there are any problems as it is.

I made some behind-the-scenes changes regarding how the menu icons are loaded. I don’t know if it actually changed anything, but in theory it should load faster now.

I think that it actually does.

And I now also went insane with colours. ­čśë It’s probably my individual “Dodesukaden” period or something. Just tell me if you hate it.

Still need to do something about the forums.
