Please. Please! No JavaScript with the Trinity web site. Supporters of JavaScript should take long walks on short piers, preferably while inebriated.

I hate JavaScript, the bane of the internet. Bandwidth hog and security nightmare.

Bad enough already that I have to white list that crap to access etherpad and the wiki. (Hint, hint.)

Please create static web pages.
