  1. why did you abandon your old format? this new version is lame.
    I liked to be able to see the cascade of articles, new ones over the old, and there were 50 different things to choose from on one screen. I could not open the site for several weeks, and see all the new sites that had been added, and also go to the old sites that I had seen before but just didn’t get to.
    Too bad for you, I won’t be visiting SciTech much anymore. You screwed up a great thing. Why?

  2. Interesting!

  3. Well i think their new format is just the tops, much cleaner

  4. I think this site is much better than before..
