Page Improvements

I’m improved the layout of the main ShipWatcher page to give it a more “modern” look and feel.

The functionality is the same, except that a few of the links are now along the top, and the right-hand side-bar is less cluttered.

Please let me know what you think!

Server Update

I’ve changed the server that ShipWatcher.com is hosted on.

Hopefully you won’t notice any difference, although there are occasional unavoidable increases in response time.

If you encounter any major issues, please let me know.
