Unintentional dumb caused me to crash the site.  Looks like we are back in business after 40 minutes of downtime.   My bad.

Now what am I supposed to do with all my freshly oiled torches?

Is the new look of the home page the "surprise" from this afternoon?  Because I'm really not a fan of that look at all.

I for one really like how it looks - articles can be glanced at and scrolled through faster, and reviews stand out and show up quickly just a few 'lines' of articles down.

Is the new look of the home page the "surprise" from this afternoon?  Because I'm really not a fan of that look at all.

after looking at it a bit, I can see a pattern to the madness:

various items
news
reviews
featured review
news
news
news

pros and cons that I see (I'm assuming this is a work in progress and you'll be looking for feedback):

thumbsdown light blue or light grey text on a white background is not visually friendly.

icon_neutral miss the quick text blurbs for everything but I imagine the articles will get more page hits that way.

icon_confused the tooltip that pops up for each article says 'permalink to xxxx'.  should that be popping up like that?

thumbsup like the scrolling for the reviews, but...

icon_frown to me it seems poorly placed; 4 news bits then 2 rows of reviews then more news.  maybe if the review bar was placed and scrolled vertically on the side?  not sure what resoultion you are optimizing the page for, but if it is 1920x1080 or higher you got room on either side.
