  1. That Gordon Harries sure goes on a bit.

    Enjoyed the story, although the passing reference to a telescope tripped me up. Even allowing for advances in Arabian astronomy, I found it difficult to believe such a device existed in the year 312.

    Enjoyed the reviews too, although there were a few too many typos for comfort.

    Not too sure about the use of a sans serif font. I find they look smart but are generally harder on the eye when it comes to reading non-trivial amounts of text.

    But overall, the new Hub is looking good.

    Hi Vaughan,
    Thanks for the comments regarding the new layout. Just to back up why I used a sans serif font; from a professional point of view they are actually regarded as a far easier font to read, especially for people with visual impairments and/or dyslexia. I tend to use them for most projects unless a client has specified otherwise.

    I agree with Vaughns comments on the font. I’m not sure if it’s the font or the colour? It looks blurred like a low res image which it’s not and I just couldn’t quite put my finger on it.

    Other than that the new hub looks great, keep up the good work.
