How to Change the MTU in Windows 7

New Site Design

The old site was looking more than a little bit dated and only hosted pictures that nobody looked at or could simply see on Facebook. So now the site looks like this and is WordPress instead of static HTML.

I don’t have any real plans for this site at the moment but maybe I’ll dream up something.
