<h2><a href="./me/">Personal Info</a></h2>
+The site has seen a major revamp in the last couple of days. Here is a list
+of the most important changes and news:
+I added the <a href="http://swpat.ffii.org/">"Stop Software Patents!"</a> nag
+image to all my pages and a top frame to the front page.
+There's a new code for the navigation menu. The old code was an unholy mess,
+and the new code is a pure Perl one, which makes the nav-menu much easier
+Thanks to the new navigation menu code, there are now Mozilla/Firefox
+navigation links, that allow traversing the site page by page. For those who
+are unfortunate enough not to use these browsers, some rudimentary arrows were
+added above the navigation menu.
+I now have an Uber-kitchy leading path of the page sections and sub-sections at
+I'm now <a href="./work/private-lessons/">giving private lessons</a> in
+high-school subjects and computer-related topics.
