The site somehow grabbed your attention strong enough to get you to read it 
later. 

But it didn't manage to do that for many people yet.

It's very close, though I now understand why you didn't make "About the Hurd" 
a heading - it looks strange to see the section above in the table of 
contents. 

That's something I would undo again (sorry).  

The news still look a bit too large (they look like only news wil follow), but 
I hope that my CSS snippet for your layout idea can change that. 

Best wishes, 
Arne
