A four and a half year old browser that was last updated over 2 and a
half years ago can, to be blunt, and given our short dev timeline, go
fuck itself.

We've boshed out some more changes.  Mike has implemented Google Site
Search to retain some measure of searchability across the articles and
lists, I've rolled the virtually final 4.0 theme to the beo and leo
test sites, and I've plugged in all the current leo content into the
leo test site (list links, archive links, thelist guidelines, etc).
I've also started building the 'colophon', listing the tech, tools,
hosts and people who have made evolt happen over the years.  These are
the final steps in getting everything ready to launch on the 15th.  I
still need to integrate the current beo page rendering into the new
theme; I'll be working on an improved beo from launch onwards.

I've heard no-one say at this point that this all sucks, and to again
be blunt, you've all had plenty of time to be loud, so we will proceed
apace!  Qa'pla!

>From a crowdsourcing content point of view, I'd love to get a full
list of everyone who has contributed to evolt over the years, and if
we could get an up-to-date link list for them (web, twitter, etc),
that would be bloody fabulous.

Fly, evolters, fly!
