Thx Nielsen. Some people are still unable to see it. Good feedback from the folks who can so far.

Having problems seeing the new site? This may help:


I'm thrilled to announce that we've just launched our new web site
this morning. w00t! :-)

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Before you click, understand that you may have problems accessing the
new site. Some of our staffers can't even get to it yet because of
browser and/or ISP caching issues. If things look really broken, like
if you see parts of the old site and parts of the new site, your
browser is probably caching some old pages/files. Quit out of your
browser and try again. You may even need to restart your computer. If
worse comes to worse, reload our CSS file by clicking here <http://www.atu2.com/atu2.css
> and then come back and refresh the home page.

There's a brief welcome message on the new home page, and a longer
message that explains what's new that you can read here:

Thanks, and enjoy! Constructive feedback, good or bad, is always
welcome.

Matt

Looks great - very crisp and fresh feel to it. I've been an @u2 junkie for years. Thanks for the great new look and the magnificent site!

I am one of those folks who still can't see it. I'll restart my browser and check back.

EDIT:Okay, I restarted the browser and still no dice. I shall look into this further. ;)

What's that whole 'CSS file' thing about? What does that do? How does it help me see the purty new site?

EDIT AGAIN: I restarted and rebooted (myself, ooohoohooh) the PC, and I still can't see it. :(

Your ISP probably has you cached on the old site. You'll have to wait, sorry to say. :)

Fantastic site!  I have been a regular since 2000.

Is there an archive for the Bits and Bytes section?  I couldn't locate an archive on the old site either.  This is important content and it would be great if one could go back and look for information that was posted in this section.

It looks really nice. My only feedback is that the inserts at the top of the screen look like they've had their tops chopped off. It might just be an issue of resizing the photos. I like the new U2 photo top right. Congrats to all!

You can still go to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login ... and at some point soon we'll be looking to hire a new Achtoonist. Was just too swamped with things when Kelly gave her notice a month ago to do anything about it.
