I just wrapped up development on a new home page for non-logged-in users. The page had had the same exact design since Quizlet launched more than a year ago. The "Top 5" thing had a great run, but everything needs to get retired at some point. The new design presents a lot more dynamic information and cuts down on plain boring text.
In case you're wondering, the new picture is a picture of me having breakfast (!) when I was about 10. I just felt like using it...haha.
On top of these improvements, I've made several bug fixes. Most notably, the ending analysis from the Learn page is back in Internet Explorer after a month-long vacation. I made Space Race wrap text so huge scrolling wouldn't happen as much. I've also been working on a few things that should reduce static file sizes to make Quizlet load a little bit faster. Lastly, I upgraded this blog Wordpress 2.5.
In other news, it's pretty much assured that I'll be going to MIT. They gave me a pretty impressive financial aid package, and it should be a fun place to be. I'll be in Boston Tuesday-Sunday visiting MIT for their Campus Preview Weekend, so if anyone's in Boston and wants to meet up, send me an email (andrew at quizlet).
