    1. Noted, I've been wondering about that little hiccup. Pushed a quick fix for now.
    2. Interesting point! I'll have to explore some different solutions.
    3. The sidebar thing feels outdated, why so? Genuinely interested – what would you do instead?
    4. darn https.

      3 - Anything with a sidebar follows a design affordance that was established during the blog(WP)-boom - in your particular case I feel it distracts from the main body (and core copy/message) you're trying to communicate. I would experiment with centering the main body (keep the width so you have some whitespace left and right) and then put the four snippets in your current sidebar either 4-abreast at the bottom of the copy or in a 2x2 grid if you need the space. Visually, it just allows the user to focus on the main body first. Just my .02

      4 - See you've already spotted (and fixed) the missing "t". :)

      Good luck! Nothing like the cobbler's shoes...
