I'm sorry to say I've been putting off this post for weeks now, because it's one I wish I didn't have to write.
One Monday morning, a little over a month ago, Paul and I got an email from the family of Cougary, the author of 'The Last Hamlet' and many other fine and thoughtful contributions here at Oort Cloud.
Sadly, the email informed us that Cougary had passed away the previous weekend.
Fred Saberhagen has died. :-(
I really like almost all of his work: the "Swords" books, the "Empire" books, the "Berserker" books, etc.
Just throwing this out there for some feedback...
I have added the Oort-Cloud Mission statement at the top of the front page in big friendly letters. It's not quite "Don't Panic!" but it works. :-)
We would like it to be more visible on the site in general, which could be accomplished by:
- putting it in a block on the side
- keeping it front and center (but possibly smaller)
