Wow, thank you for the visits! Right now Makanyuk's hits have climbed to levels unseen before. Again, we would like to thank you for always visiting our site. Within the next few days you might encounter a slight slowdown in the response of the server, but that is only because we are currently upgrading our database. After that, this are going to be just peachy!

Welcome people to the fourth redesign of the Makanyuk version 4.0! I hope you like the new look and speed, but it is not only skin deep. The site is now 95% CSS driven, meaning that it should be about 3 times faster than before. Our eatery selection also continues to grow, and we are proud to inform you that we are now breaking the 3000 mark for listings in our database. Thank you for always visiting this page, and please come back often.
PS: For you who have written to us with comments, thank you very much, we promise that we'll get back to you as quick as we can, but the emails just come in floods!

Blogs. I like blogs. I really like blogs. Well, the reason I like blogs instead of the idea is also because it embodies web designers want for cleanliness in interfaces. Thinking of whether I should convert the site totally to css, and to hell with tables. Wanna see clean design? Check out That's the future of the web, kids! Interested? Check this out too: Blue Robot. Enjoy, but I guess this news is kinda "not MakanYuk"...
