I redesigned the IMRS Home Page a bit. I moved some stuff around, added a jQuery content slider, and made the Building Notices Box conditional based on whether there are actually building notices or not.
I also tried to add more interest to the design with icons and some gradients. I will probably never be a really good web designer, but I think it looks better than before.
Still not completely happy with it. I will need to add a News section for those times where there are more than 6 articles and where there is something that doesn't need a picture. Also, the events RSS takes up too much room for what it is. To be honest, the feed from the calendar is not all that useful. I might split the bottom area in to two sections: the main area for News and a side bar for Upcoming Events.
