We listen, really we do, and sometimes we hear what you guys are saying.

The other day whilst Shazz and I were discussing the every day running of this entirely wonderful newspaper, we talked about what you had been saying in various conversations and correspondence about the positioning of your articles. Whilst I munched on a box of doughnuts she ordered me to come up with something different, something new, something inventive, something the like of which had never been seen on h2g2.

After much thought and deliberation, and yet another box of doughnuts I thought bugger that and went home. Arriving back at the Post Office the following day I saw that a Post-It note had been stuck to the front of my litter (did I say litter? I of course mean letter) tray with the words, 'No New Coding, No Doughnuts' written in large unfriendly looking letters.

Deciding that Shazz would make good on her threat I cunningly tweaked the original Front Page Coding, added a few orange section headers, and hey presto as if by magic a whole new format was born. Explaining to Shazz that each section could be rotated so that a new one was at the top would make everyone happy was enough for her to pat me on my head and give me a whole new box of doughnuts to start on... Yay for my ever so cunning plan!!!!

Now all I need is for you lot to like it and my life will be complete, and I can retire and go live in a small house of ill repute in Cheshire, the land that runneth over with doughnuts and really cold milk, in a glass with a straw!!!.

Share and Enjoy!!!
