But looks like dejanews has also brought back its old look on the
original address of www.dejanews.com

Over the weekend and today, the old look site was back at
www.dejanews.com while the new look site is at www.deja.com.

Maybe, they want to see how many people will bother with the old look
and use it instead of the new look???
