New site layout!

I've now experimentally moved the ict4e wiki to sciencemedianetwork.org/wiki, and (also as an experiment) sciencemedianetwork.org is now run directly off the wiki. There may be some problems in transition. (If your browser understands css attribute selection, then content on the wiki still shows with a little globe, like this: wiki main page.)

This allowed me to change the design of the site, and I hope the present site is some improvement in terms of design!

Previously the main site was run of my Mediawiki mirror script, and therefore was very small and accessible. With the move to the main mediawiki template, the main site is now as large as mediawiki. Hopefully that'll provide some incentive for me to create a better low-bandwidth skin for mediawiki (see Monobmo). However the move to the mediawiki skin also means that the mobile skin detection is now active, which means that you still have a small size when browsing by mobile (see Mediawiki access/Mobile/Skin and Mediawiki access/Skins).

More than happy to receive feedback!
