So I looked at this site in MSIE for the first time in a year or two and saw how badly things were broken. I wonder how much of a turnoff that was for people. Fortunately, it turned out that there was just a bit of overcomplicated legacy stuff in the header which was no longer necessary, and removing it somehow fixed the stuff on the rest of the page as well. Hooray for IE, I guess. Anyway, sorry if that was turning off the 80%30% or so of readers who were trying to navigate the site via IE.
I just wanted to mention that the dotted circle on my lap is for the cat, you perverts.
