I don't think it is sad at all.  It think it is one of the few
sites I visit that is accessible, is quick to load, conforms to
standards, uses my fonts instead of forcing me to get nose prints
on the monitor, is informative, has minimal mindless glitz, and
works in any browser.

The only thing I might change is to replace the frames with some
sort of CSS-based positioning.  HOWEVER, the new version of
Internet Explorer may totally destroy the usefulness of CSS, so
maybe it is better to leave things as they are for now.
