Hello again

You may recall that nearly five years ago I morphed GameWeb into Installation 04. Now I'm doing it again! As it turns out, there was too much bagage for me to continue with Installation 04 in its current form. I had really grown accustomed to the name, but now it just reminds me of days long past. I think that the only way forward is to make a change. So I did. Installation 04 is now Installed Base. Same content, new title under the flagship of me. No more fancy domains and no more trying to be something. It's just for me. That's the way I want it. I also want it with no sidebar, as you can see. I think it works. What do you think?
