We've been thinking about the background image for a while now. Many computers (dependent on graphic software) will have trouble loading this thing every time.
We are really hoping to be able to work to speed up the performance of the site in the future, and this is one of those things that could bog it down.
I'd love to remove the background for performance sake, but I've always felt that too many people are used to it and love it.
Thoughts? How do you feel about the image background of newschoolers?
Ten years and we aint' goin' nowhere.
