You are so right there!  I have split the activities into different files
now.  The whole site is made with Jekrll, a static preprocessor, so I made
an extension to that to generate the index json files.  I managed to break
a few things on the way so I will fix them.

Cool.  I will get rid of animations and background images, but what is
wrong with some color in the background?  I think it introduces a nice
contrast between the activity list and the activity data.  Anyway I've cced
Manuq (he is still the design guru?).
