A clean new website

We're more-or-less done updating and fixing up the M.B. Marsh Design website. The big things are done: We're now running on a modern Drupal 7 core, and we're excited about the new, fully responsive, mobile-friendly HTML5 visual theme. (For those who care, it's based on Pixture Reloaded by Jeff Burnz.)

There may be some lingering glitches, and we have a lot of small, gradual changes to roll out in the coming months. Bug reports are welcome (just leave a comment below).

GPS spoofing sends a yacht off course

In the news this week, we have a case of life imitating Hollywood.

In Tomorrow Never Dies, Bond's nemesis-of-the-week spoofed a GPS signal to send a British warship into Chinese waters, while its captain and crew thought it was still on the right side of the border. Now, a University of Texas team has (with the skipper's permission) done exactly the same thing to a superyacht cruising the Med.

The site's a mess (but not for long)

We're in the process of updating our Web presence here at M.B. Marsh Design.

The upgrades to the Drupal core (v6 -> v7) are more-or-less complete. We are, however, finding all sorts of quirks in the D7 versions of our old D6 themes.

A new, responsive HTML5 theme is on the way. In the meantime, I hope you don't mind the visual oddities of the (temporary) CSS hacks we're using to keep the site looking more-or-less normal for the next few days.

Cheers,

Matt
