I've gone through the site template and yanked out a half dozen images, including the links to my Amazon, B&N, GoodReads, and NaNoWriMo profiles and the images for the Daily Deals because my image host was loading way too slow and page loads were taking forever.
The Daily Deals are still in their usual place, just texty now. The profile links will migrate over to my About Me page at some point in the future.
I also took out the Ramble chat box because it wasn't really seeing heavy use. I hope these changes will only please people and provide faster page loads and will not cause sad faces for anyone.
