Oh, I don't know!  I'm quite partial to the old logo :-)

Yes, agreed.  Is it necessary to be able direct to go to every sub-section
from every page?  You could get rid of the table down the left hand side
and just put the section links across the top and bottom (both is nice, as
it is often a long way from top to bottom in Lynx).  Something like :

  Introduction  Distribution  Support  MetaInfo  Third Parties  NetBSD Events

<Page goes here>

  Introduction  Distribution  Support  MetaInfo  Third Parties  NetBSD Events

These could then link to section main pages which have the sub-section links.

The cisco pages used to be like this, which made them nice to navigate with
Lynx, but now they've gone for flashy content with graphics everywhere :(

On the other hand, it looks marginally better than the original wih Chimera.
Seeing as that doesn't have coloured text/background images, I can't comment!


PS.  On both pages, under devotionalia, the 'Plush daemon' link should point
to :
