Hi. Love your website.

Suggestion: clicking on the thumbnail of the article should take you to the article and not a JPEG of it.

Also, I would have emailed this suggestion instead of hijacking the comments of this interesting artcle - but there is no link to an email address.

I stop here everyday. Keep up the great work!
